Welcome to our Food Blog – our 1st post!

It’s been a long time coming.  I’ve been dreaming of this day! I’ve always wanted to start a food blog.

It might seem outdated in this day and age of TikTok and Instagram Reels to launch one. But I grew up reading and following blogs.  I’m sure I’m not the only one who still reads blogs.

There’s something different about the written word. Perhaps it’s a more intimate medium.

A lost art one might say.

We started off by creating a Youtube channel, and named it StirCozy.  A play on the phrase stir crazy.  It was a reflection of the time we were/are in (*hint hint: pandemic*). 

Stuck inside, with nothing to do except enjoy the simpler things in life — cooking and baking

The original intention was to create just food vlogs, but we have sprinkled in recipes here and there. 

I was inspired by all these Korean and Japanese cooking vlogs on Youtube.  All they did was cook and eat, never showing their face or talking, just showing the ins-and-outs of their meals. 

It sounds very mundane, but it was very calming, not to mention addicting.  Hopefully we can capture some of that in our videos and in this blog.

What will this food blog be about, you ask?

We created this food blog to run in parallel with our Youtube channel.  Because like I mentioned earlier, some things are better said through words.

We plan to use this site as a way to casually talk (aka: ramble) about food.

Revel in our cooking mishaps. (While it secretly eats us inside. ?)

Post mouthwatering pictures.

And occasionally share recipes.

We’re not experts by any means. We just love food. And we hope you do too.

So without further ado, welcome to StirCozy — a food blog focused on good eats! I hope you feel connected to us via our food journey. And if you haven’t already, check out our Youtube channel and Instagram! ?

And lastly, in case you’re wondering about the feature image for this post, it’s from when we made mochi kinchaku (餅巾着).
