Hello. Welcome to Nibbles of Tidbits, a Food Blog. I’m Shelly Borrell Freis and its publisher. We report about and photograph all things FOOD related — Cooking, dining out, recipes, competitions, events, products and a whole lot more. We review and feature many Southern California restaurants and other fabulous food finds discovered through travel and eating on Earth.
Nibbles of Tidbits is a blog about the GOOD, the BAD & the FUNNY regarding FOOD — From Yikes to Ooo La La. In addition to above, we emphasize food comparison, experimentation, various cooking techniques, uncommon ingredients, easy meals, helpful tools, shortcuts, cool ideas, copycat recipes, great deals and fun stuff. Read about tasty dishes, as well as “dishes gone wrong.” If you’ve been cooking a long time, you know that many dishes turn out great and some just become that (hopefully funny now) incident of enlightenment.
When not dining out, the goal is to prepare unique and flavorful, high-quality meals on a daily basis. Why not? We report the results of our testing and tastings, good or bad. We’re a ‘Tavern on the Web‘ to take away yummy inspiration or learn what not to do next time. Thanks for visiting and do check back often.
I’ve been a cooking (and eating) enthusiast for years and have been LUCKY enough to WIN a few recipe/food contests — To learn more about all that, see the following links: The Milk Contest, Hof’s Hut Burger Contest, Hof’s Hut Burger INFO, BBQ Prize, Name on the Menu, Various, Better Homes & Gardens, Zespri Prize, Zespri Kiwi Semi-Finalist, More Kiwi Contest INFO, OC Fair Ribbons, OC Fair Ribbons, Pie Competition Honorable Mention, and yet more OC Fair Wins. More about Nibbles of Tidbits and contests I didn’t win can be learned here. Contest WINS and links are slightly out-of-date and shall be posted soon.
If seeking information regarding Freelance Writing Services, please visit main site I Need Text Company (www.ineedtext.com) — To view non-food-related writing samples, see here. And if you want more food, I previously published as Orange County Food Examiner on Examiner.com. Aside from all that, I love interesting TIDBITS, so leave us something to NIBBLE on.
All the Best, Shelly Borrell Freis
And officially introducing… Matt Freis (pictured right), my dear husband and better photographer in our family, who will be contributing many photos here on Nibbles of Tidbits. He loves photography, food and my cooking too, and just got an impressive new camera — It’s a winning combination no matter how you look at it. I’m grateful for all and he’s cute too. We’re team Freis West of Nibbles of Tidbits, a Food Blog.
