OMG I cant believe the day is finally here, the very first post on my own food blog. Truly never thought this day would come because I tend to be hard on myself. Honestly, I am a bit scared because I don’t know where this journey will take me; however, on the other hand I am excited and hope this takes me to places I never imagined of going , as well as connect with people from all over.
So here we go…creating this childhood favorite of mine that’s wayyyy tastier and healthier than Subway. As a middle school-aged kid I used to love an Italian Meatball sub from Subway. There was one within walking distance of my house and at least once a week I would get money from my dad to go grab one. Though only about 90 lbs I could throw down a whole foot-long in one sitting. I would always ask the preparer to add lots of jalapenos and some mayo. It was so yummy and would make me so happy!
Now fast-forward to the adult me, and I prefer to recreate my childhood favorites where I am able to fully control the ingredients. For me, having the most natural ingredients is most important. I’m sure that is something you will notice in my future posts, as I enjoy supporting locally-based grocery stores and farmers’ markets throughout southeast Michigan. When those are not options, such as the (not) lovely winter then it’s to the organic section of the chain stores. Enough of this, checkout the recipe below!
