Hi there.

Welcome to my blog, Made By Jill.  My name is…(just kidding).  

This blog is about the food that I eat.  Why would anyone care what I eat?  They probably don’t, but I could blither blather about food-related topics all day.  My friends and family love me in spite of this.  But, I thought it was high time I gave them all a break by blithering and blathering in a different forum.  So food blogging it is. 

You should know a little bit more about me, before you decide whether you want to continue reading Made By Jill (please continue, I like you already).  

Let’s start with the biggie- I’m a vegan.  Isn’t it unusual to meet a vegan who is obsessed with food ?

I may not get points for originality, but perhaps you’ll read on anyhow. 

I’m into “alternative” junk food.  Not to say that I don’t eat regular junk food, but my food hang-overs are less intense when I eat the stuff marketed to health nuts.  Ever wonder who actually orders the spelt-crust, cheese-less pizza?  The gluten-free, dairy-free muffin?  The brownie sweetened with agave?  Well, now you know. 

I’m also pretty hardcore about the quality of food I eat.  Which basically means that I like to eat things that actually grew in the ground, or things made with ingredients I can pronounce. I used to eat a lot of processed crap, but a few years ago I realized that real food tastes better. It was a real “a-ha” moment.  

Since I discovered that it is (gasp) actually possible to make most things sold in packages, I’ve become a real do-it-yourself-er in the kitchen. This has had both tremendous and catastrophic results. I hereby solemnly promise to blog it all for your entertainment.

I hope you enjoy my addition to the highly addictive food blogging community.  Please do come on in and stay awhile.

    Hi Jill!

    I’m your biggest fan!!

    I was avoiding chocolate, because my nutritionist told me that this might help lower my high cholesterol — but it turns out that recent research has demonstrated the opposite! Eating dark chocolate in moderation actually helps to lower cholesterol!!

    Needless to say, I am on top of the moon with this news. I was going through your blog to look for an old recipe you used to have — one for raw chocolate raspberry cake– but I cannot seem to find it. Perhaps it was on your old blog. If so, could you please share it again?

    Keep up the good eats!!!

    XO A Diamond in the Rough
