I happen to love the blogger community that’s formed in the ‘burbs. From Greenwich to Yonkers, north to south, food lovers to savvy shoppers, the tristate area has some writers who offer an amazing service—an inside scoop on the latest and greatest, shared on blogs and social media.

There’s one place we’ve seemed to all come together… Tweeting our posts and supporting each other with a little blue bird. So here’s a quick, unconventional #FF (Follow Friday) to all my fellow bloggers: @FoodiePleasure@small_bites@megmccaff15@914Social@weewestchester,
@WestchesterFood@xxGreenwichGirl@onthemenuct@stacyknows@HeyStamford,
@AdelineJessica@AnujaDeSilva@CTLifestyles and @deeCuisine.

I’d like to especially thank Allen and Kristina from Foodie Pleasure for recently featuring IntoxiKate on their blog. Here’s a quick snippet of the interview:

A few things we enjoy almost as much as eating include reading tweets on Twitter, looking at pics on Instagram and reading the blogs of fellow food writers. One of our favorite blogs is Katie Schlientz’s IntoxiKate, where readers learn about places to eat and “live life deliciously.” Before attending Katie’s IntoxiKate Happy Hour at City Limits Diner in Stamford tonight, we reached out to Katie to learn more about her.

FP: We love your blog and its concept! Tell us about IntoxiKate. How did the idea come about?

KS: Thank you very much! I appreciate that, and I’m completely humbled by the support I’ve received so far. I started IntoxiKate about a year ago—I love food, and wanted to encourage people to live life deliciously, to take an active role in interesting food events and try new, innovative dishes.

FP: Do you cook at home? If so what are some of your favorite meals to prepare for yourself and/or friends?

KS: I love to cook! The first dinner I ever cooked was a box of mac and cheese—no joke! I was in sixth grade, and my mom was working late. I thought it would be a good idea to make dinner for the whole family so she wouldn’t have to when she got home. I set the table, and had everything laid out when she walked in. I can still remember the look on her face—she was so incredibly surprised and grateful. I loved her reaction so much, I made dinner for my family almost every night from that point on.

These days, I’m not using too much out of a box (I cringe when I think about that dinner now!). I have a torrid affair with my crock pot and a real fear of baking. I love to experiment with dishes I haven’t cooked, but I have a few standard go to options when friends come over: roasted chicken with lemon and fresh basil, sinigang (a Filipino soup with a tamarind base), and a cheesy crab dip (recipe from my dad)…
