This week’s “a day in the life” features the lovely Rebecca of Chow and Chatter. Rebecca has a fabulous blog and even has her own recipe app! How impressive is that? You’ll find a little of everything on her site–even social media tips! It is super helpful and a great resource.


Tell me about yourself and how you started food blogging.

I am a registered dietitian, mum and love the travel. I started blogging after my daughter was born nearly 4 years ago for fun.

Take me through your day.

A typical day is like most Mums, up at 7 am feed and bath kids take J to pre-school and have a walk with my one year old. Return home. If he naps I try to blog, read other blogs and find cool articles to link to Facebook and tweet, clean house then pick her up at lunchtime.

Noon- have lunch, play with kids outside in the yard, let them nap and cook evening meal. When they wake, play more and eat about 6 pm. Maybe have a walk in the evening, go for ice cream, see friends then at 8-8.30pm get them to bed.

In the evening hang out with hubby if he is home and blog, work on presentations. I give professional presentations.

What is your one must-have kitchen tool or gadget?

An electric kettle to make tea, I am a Brit.

What is the most important part of your day?

I love playing with the kids.

If you could choose one room in your house to spend the WHOLE day in, which room would it be?

The yard.

What is your favorite day of the week? Why?

They are all good to me.

If you had to choose one place to travel to every year over and over, where would it be? Why? Have you been there before?

The UK–it’s my homeland.

If you could travel anywhere in the world for free, where would you go and how long would you stay?

France for a few months to learn cooking.

What is your favorite quote or verse?

“Never, never, never give up.” -Winston Churchill

What recipe on your blog are you most proud of?

Eton mess, as it’s my take on a British classic.

What recipe on your blog do your readers seem to love most?

I think my vlog posts such as how to find your blogging niche do well.

What have you learned since you began blogging?

I have learned all about social media, and now teach folks on it. Pretty cool.

What have you found to be the most challenging part of blogging?

Keeping up with the reading of others blogs, no matter how busy I get though, I always make time to respond to comments.

Do you have any advice for someone who is interested in cooking or food blogging?

Follow your passion and be patient it takes time to build readers and connect. Be you and have fun.
