Restaurant Reviews, Ratings and a Goodbye

First, I’m going to start with the good news:

A couple weeks ago, I met with a really nice woman, Ann Preston, after seeing her blog about Kitsap restaurants. And, after our conversation, she’s agreed to share her reviews on the Kitsap Sun’s site on the Kitsap Dining blog! She’s new to the county and she’s been taking a look at the everyday-style restaurants in Kitsap. I’ve enjoyed reading her posts, and I hope you will too.

Also on the restaurant front, I’ve been working on adding restaurants and details to local establishments on our site in our restaurants guide at kitsapsun.com/restaurants. With each restaurant, readers have the ability to give it a star rating and comment.While Yelp and UrbanSpoon offer restaurant reviews, I know finding places in Kitsap can be a little tough, and I’m hoping that this will grow to be a solid resource for Kitsap foodies. t’s a work in progress, and I’ll be adding restaurants to it in my spare time. Restaurant lovers out there can also share information about their favorites if you don’t see it on the list already. Pass the word on to your favorite restauranteur.

And now for the bad news:

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, the posts to the Food Life have become infrequent and at times a little lackluster. This blog was a side project, most work done in my spare time. I believe the best blogs are ones created by people passionate about a topic or community and who can give the blog time, attention and frequently post. While I may have the passion about food, time, it seems is something I have precious little of sometimes (you should see the stock of TV and otherwise frozen dinners we’ve had in the past couple months).

While I’ve enjoyed talking with many of  you either on the blog or in e-mails, I’m going to have to say goodbye to The Food Life. Though you won’t be able to find the blog on the main site anymore, you’ll still be able to access the archives at pugetsoundblogs.com/foodlife.

This, of course, won’t be the last you’ll see of me on the blogs, nor will it be the last change you see to Kitsap Sun blogs. Please look for the changes and wish us luck.

And if you or anyone else you know is interested in writing about food, our bloggers would welcome the company. I’m hoping some of those aspiring chefs out there want to share their killer recipes.

Thank you to all who’ve joined me here. Until we meet again …

Welcome to In Search of the Food Life

Yep, you guessed it. It’s about food.

But not just any food. What you’ll find on this blog will be resources, ideas and a place to talk about food for those of us in Kitsap.

So a little bit about me: My name is Angela Dice.

I’m not a veteran food critic or a gourmet chef. What I am is a food enthusiast who loves taking photos, videos and sharing information.

Most of the happy memories in my life involved food:  Barbecues with my friends. Morning breakfast bowls of miso soup and rice with my grandma as she tells stories about life in Japan. Thanksgiving dinners where we stuffed ourselves so full of turkey and mashed potatoes that we could do nothing afterwards but lounge and joke around the dining room table just long enough for our stomachs to digest down room for one slice of pumpkin pie.

So I’ve set myself on the path to making better meals for my friends and family, learning from people and places around Kitsap, Seattle and surrounding areas, and sharing what I learn along the way. I’ll be joined on occasion by other Sun bloggers.

So with that said, I hope you’ll join me on this journey, and I look forward to sharing what I find and hearing from you. Always wanted to learn how a local food expert made something? I can’t promise to get the answer, but I’ll ask for you. Feel free to treat me like your personal scout.
