The Girl Behind The Gut

Welcome to my gluttonous corner of the internet! 

I'm Maria, the food-obsessed Jersey girl behind Sometimes Foodie.

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.

After three years of consistent blogging, my writing skills have improved considerably and I had begun getting more and more attention from like-minded food-lovers, 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, or pampering my spoiled, equally food-obsessed, rescue Pomeranian, Jack-Jack.
