get foo’d is a food, lifestyle and personal blog, with elements of all my favorite things thrown in: travel, philosophy, health, nutrition and above all, humor. The name comes from my nickname, “alissafoo,” that my cousin and I somehow come up with sitting at the computer in her bedroom at age 15 when internet handles were first born, and now, 15 years later, it’s my brand. I’m a reformed hedonist who’s favorite activity is now baking gluten-free muffins before watching my stories and going to bed at 9pm on a Friday. I’m a deep thinker, a mildly depressed hypochondriac, a total nihilist, a Gemini, and a middle child. In other words, a modern day comedian.
I’m a total amateur cook and I have no training whatsoever except 31 years worth of taste-testing. I do not have any professional quality cooking utensils in my kitchen (mostly I make things using 1 bowl, 1 small spoon and 1 old pan) nor do I have a professional quality camera. But what she doesn’t have in looks, she makes up for in personality! My recipes can all be subbed for whatever you want and I also encourage experimenting! Additionally, like my things in my life, I adhere to a very strict, fast and loose policy of rule following.
