I’m Quin and welcome to Butter Be Ready! I’m so glad you’re here!
This blog is an extension of my love for all things food and photography. I love creating unique, fun, and seasonally inspired dishes. My approach is often simple with little to no fussy ingredients.
Spending time in the kitchen is my “me” time and quite simply, makes me happy.
My love affair with food and cooking began a few years ago after I graduated college.
Let’s pause here. I have a secret…
During my college days, I lived off of fast food and could (embarrassingly enough) not even make rice correctly! I was the total opposite of the foodie that I am today. Really, my loved ones often recall those days, ha!
Needless to say, I started researching recipes, going to farmer’s markets, and getting fully immersed into all things food. I have absolutely fallen in love! You know, the whole hearts in the eyes business 😍, yup! Since I’m naturally shy (any other introverts out there?); I feel the most comfortable in my kitchen whipping up all kinds of culinary dishes and baked goods. And you’ll almost always find a camera in my hand taking pictures of all kinds of food.
I come from a West Indian familial background (USVI) where food is often the center of everything.
I currently reside in beautiful Tampa Bay where by day I earn a living in the insurance industry, and all other times as a hobby, I run this blog.
Most importantly, thank you for visiting my site!
