Droolius 8 Year Blog Anniversary & Celebrating with Sushi Donuts

The middle of August marked the 8 year blog anniversary. I started to celebrate this anniversary with a giveaway, but I also had to keep up the tradition and celebrate with food. What better way than to celebrate with 8 mini sushi donuts? Poke Burri in Atlanta, GA makes some of the most creative sushi items and they have done it again with mini sushi donuts. I’ve featured a regular sized sushi donut before, but these minis are easier to eat and as my fiancé says, “too cute” not to share. The variety of toppings and sauces compliment the slices of tuna, salmon and spicy tuna. These mini sushi donuts are a specialty item and need to be ordered in advanced. Order ahead by sliding in the @PokeBurri DM’s and sending a message with your order.

Droolius 7 Year Blog Anniversary

It’s hard to believe I started this blog 7 years ago. A project created to showcase my photography has turned into a brand, with opportunities to travel and also teach food photography. Speaking at conferences and teaching how to photograph food has become a regular occurrence in the past year. We hosted our first Capture the Bite workshop which was a success with food and travel influencers at Disney World. We have more photography workshops planned in the near future and those will be announced as details unfold. Ok enough reflecting, let’s get to the food! To celebrate this occasion we stopped at Jollibee, a Filipino fast food restaurant from the Philippines, for lunch with the family and ended with Halo Halo for dessert. No better way to celebrate than sharing this nostalgic Filipino dessert with my family who was in town for my uncle’s 90th birthday celebration and a mini-family reunion. “Halo Halo” means “mix mix”, which is what you do when eating this dessert. Ingredients include sweet beans, jellies, coconut jelly, fruits, covered …

Droolius 5 Year Blog Anniversary

It’s hard to believe that I started this food blog five years ago and it has been quite the experience in eating food, traveling for food, and learning about food in different cultures. From watching subtitled episodes of Iron Chef in Japan to various cooking shows and chef competitions, I’ve been able to discover the food I’ve seen on TV, travel to some of the destinations, and even meet some of my food heroes (that sounds like a future blog post). I’m very thankful for where this blog has taken me and I always celebrate every blog anniversary with food. To continue my yearly tradition I wanted something that I have not done in the past. I needed five of some type of food that would look great in a photo and something we would enjoy eating. So here’s what I came up with: five scoops of gelato stacked high. The results were better than what I imagined. Plus, it’s something fun to celebrate my actual birthday!   click to enlarge Celebrating in this unique …
