Friday Foodie – Anna of ANNAdventure

Foodie-Friday-on-Misadventures-with-AndiIf you check out food blogger Anna of ANNAdventure’s About Page I feel like she is a way cooler version of me, I even want to steal her giant, awesome “A!” She wants to travel and to eat, take photos and blog about it. Tell me, what is not to love?

Some posts on this site contain affiliate links, meaning if you book or buy something through one of these links, I may earn a small commission (at no extra cost to you!). Opinions are always my own and I’ll never promote something I don’t use or believe in.

Her photography is gorgeous and her recipes look as equally as tempting, I am currently drooling over her dulce de leche french toast with apples recipe (happily Anna just happened to send over an image for it, such a coincidence)!

Let’s meet Anna!

Food bloggers interview - Anna Bruce of ANNAdventure

[1] Have you always been a foodie, or is that something you grew into?

I have always enjoyed food. The term “foodie” came much later on in life. Growing up in Venezuela with an Italian family lends to some very exciting culinary dishes. Both my grandfather and mom are exceptional cooks. My mom always made dinner from scratch everyday after work.

There was always something delicious to eat at my house and my grandfather always used to make delicious meals when we’d visit him. I grew up with a lot of good food so when I moved out and had to fend for myself, that is when I realized that I really needed to learn to cook. Since then I have spent many hours in the kitchen, cooking, learning and cooking some more.

[2] How and why did you begin your blog?

I began my blog for so many reasons. Originally it was called OMG Yum! and it was a side project (more like hobby) to my photo business. I started it because of a comment my best friend made on my Instagram account about all my photos being about food. Many of my friends always wanted to know what I was making but for some reason, her noticing that most of my photos were about food made me have the thought “I am going to start a food blog!”

Food bloggers interview - Anna Bruce of ANNAdventure

That started a whole new way of seeing things, at first I was just documenting dinner but then I started to become inspired by food photography so I stepped up my game and learned about lighting, propping and plating. Now my blog is an extension of my main passions: food, photography, DIY and whatever else is going on in my life.

[3] What’s your favorite thing to make/cook?

I don’t have a favorite thing to cook but I do love making breakfast foods on the weekends. Anything from soft boiled eggs, to baked potatoes with eggs, to french toast and bacon… MMMMMM

Food bloggers interview - Anna Bruce of ANNAdventure

[4] What is your favorite thing to eat?

Pasta. Anything pasta. I could eat it every day. Three times a day. Sometimes four… LOL jk but yes, I LOVE pasta.

Food bloggers interview - Anna Bruce of ANNAdventure

[5] What is your comfort food?

Pasta… LOL. More specifically in a cream/cheese sauce… So Mac ‘n Cheese or pasta with some type of Alfredo sauce 🙂

[6] Describe your perfect food day?

There is nothing like going to my parents’ house and having some legit Italian or Venezuelan food made by my mom – ERMYGERD. She is an amazing cook! I get my passion and inspiration from her.

[7] What are three other blogs that inspire you?

Sue Bryce of InBedwithSue.com > I used to photograph glamour when I had my business and Sue Bryce was a big inspiration (and still is) to me. I’ve used a lot of her lighting techniques in my food photography.

Andrew Scrivani of AndrewScrivani.com and MakingSundaySauce.com > New York Times Food Photographer Andrew Scrivani has taught several workshops on creativeLIVE.com about propping and photographing food. He is an amazing teacher and amazing photographer. I love following him.

Table for Two Blog > When I started my food blog, I discovered Julie’s blog through her wedding photographer and since it was the only other food blog that I new of at the time I would always check out what she was up to. The fact that she too lived in Northern VA made me finally ask her out to dinner (not like in a date LOL) but because I was really curious to meet the person behind all the amazing food and recipes. She is really down to earth and has a lot of great insight and knowledge about food blogging.

[8] Do you have advice for bloggers just starting out?

I am still learning so much of the ins and outs of blogging but I do know that photography is quite a large component of a food blog. If the photos aren’t lit correctly, are blurry, dark, flat looking, etc. people will just hit the “x” button on your website and move on but if the images are crisp, have depth and texture, look appetizing and are appealing then people will stay longer. I love creativeLIVE and Craftsy because I learn and stay on my “A” game when it comes to photography. Also, something that I do is clip photos from magazines to study and learn from 🙂

Thanks Anna!

      Mai Tran, Thank you so much for commenting! Believe it or not I am not as adventurous when it comes to trying new foods because I usually know what I like and that is what I usually like to stick to (pretty sad but I am getting better at it). I have a really good and dear friend who is 100% an adventurous eater and she usually knows what is good to eat. She took me to a Japanese Ramen Noodle Restaurant in Chicago. To me, the idea of Ramen is what you find at the grocery store (because I was never exposed to it any other way until my trip to Chicago). I was very pleasantly surprised by how delicious Ramen is and how delicious the varieties of how they make the broth are. I was totally turned into a fan and couldn’t get enough. I love the idea of slurping the noodles too!

    I just finished dinner and this post made me hungry all over again. The photos are gorgeous and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this.
    Somehow my favorite comfort food is something my grandmother used to make me growing up – pastina. Only she put cottage cheese in it. I have no idea why – maybe because we’re Jewish. But when I have a bad day or miss her after losing her so long ago I love eating a bowl of it.

      @Cathy, I have never heard of pastina! I just checked it out and I am sure I must have had it some time in my life – how did she incorporate the cottage cheese?

      1. Cathy Chester
        February 1, 2015

        Andi, She just stirred the cottage cheese in after the pastina was cooked and placed in a bowl.
        There must be some relationship that I don’t know about between the Jewish people and dairy products. We grew up eating so much it. Sour cream, cottage cheese, every cheese imaginable, etc. Now I don’t eat much (except in my coffee) for cholesterol reasons, but back then? We ate it all!

        Yum on the pastina with cottage cheese. I can still see Nanny cooking it for me.

            Put it in a pot if you have a little spot outside, maybe a patio or front stoop. That’s what we did before we had a yard. It does grow better in the ground but I loved having some little container plants at our apartment.
