As an aspiring journalist and enthusiastic home (read: amateur) chef, I’ve built bitesbybridget on the foundation that anyone — even a college student on a budget — can make and enjoy incredible food. I’ve always loved to cook, but found myself intimidated by my inexperience (and let’s be honest, I’m a truffle oil girl on a canola oil budget). But with the help of a knowledgeable mother, a penchant for Chopped, and lots of time spent researching recipes, I’ve been able to make the most of my little college kitchen. This blog is a culmination of recipes I’ve found to be easy, inexpensive, and packed with flavor. Whether you’re craving creamy butter chicken or spiked milkshakes, bitesbybridget can fulfill all of your ~hangry~ needs. Stay tuned to this blog as I delve further into the culinary world — hopefully, I won’t get burned!
