The Girl Behind The Gut

Welcome to my gluttonous corner of the internet! 

I'm Maria, the food-obsessed Jersey girl behind Sometimes FoodieMy Ko-fi.

Sometimes Foodie started out as a micro-blog on Tumblr, where I posted food-related content with brief reviews a few times a week. My original goal was to improve my photography and writing skills, but blogging quickly became something more. Eventually I outgrew the micro-blogging format, and found a new home on Blogger. This is a personal blog, and being such, I do not accept guest posts or sponsored content.

After several years of consistent blogging, my writing skills have improved considerably, so I made it official and bought the domain name,, set up this blog, and the rest is history. (Well, not really history, but you get the idea.)

When I'm not blogging about food, I can be found on Etsy, selling various handmade goods, pampering my spoiled, equally food-obsessed, rescue Pomeranians, Jack-Jack and Pepper, or smothering my three rescue cats, Zelda, Prudence and Winnie.

Keep Up with My Daily Adventures on Social Media!


  1. Nice blog, I like to stop by every week:)

  2. I go to Target at least 1x a week. I will email you the next time I see a new flavor (I always check). Now you just need someone for WM (I am not a WM shopper).

  3. Hi! Favorite Day is Target's house-brand, and this was a Halloween item they released. It's likely sold out now, but it could return next year for Halloween. I would check online since most stores no longer have any Halloween items left. Good luck searching!
