I can’t cook. I wish that I was exaggerating. I am the girl that burns water out of a pot and ruins it, sets the fire alarm off by making toast, and uses a knife very slowly- “just in case.” Seriously, several times in high school I would be home alone, left to fend for myself at dinnertime, and the end result would be boiling water out of the pot and burning the heck out of it. Ruining my mother’s pots and pans, and then sneaking them into the trunk of my car to discard away from home. My college roommates banned me from the kitchen after I set the fire alarm off in our apartment building from using the toaster oven…twice.
In 2007, I met my husband (fondly referred to as “Mr. H” on my blog www.bitebuff.com) while celebrating a college friend’s bachelorette party in Put-in-Bay. Six months later, I up and moved from Northern NY to OH to follow my heart.
As a terrible cook, I knew that I had to quickly learn to love the art of dining out. Luckily, I had landed in Cleveland—a booming culinary scene just waiting to be explored. Eight years later, there is still so much to uncover and it is “home” in every sense of the word.
My blog and tweets (@BiteBuff) follow me as I dine at the best (and maybe sometimes the worst) that Cleveland’s independent restaurants have to offer. I share restaurant reviews, event promotions and recaps, product reviews, recipes (luckily “Mr. H” does all of the cooking), giveaways, and more. Enjoy, and thanks for following!
