Hello and a huge WELCOME to Coupon Clipping Cook!
I’m Nancy and I love to cook, and save money on groceries by using coupons and shopping for sales.
I started this blog in 2011 because I enjoyed following other food blogs so much that I just had to start one of my own.
What I really like about blogging is of course creating the recipes, but also learning about the technology, photography, and all of the other ins and outs associated with running a blog. And it’s a great way to keep track of, and share my recipe creations too.
I worked a number of years in a grocery store where I learned about different types of food not only from being familiar with all of the items sold in the store but also from talking with customers about their go-to recipes.
One of my favorite things about working at the grocery store was learning about recipes from the customers, and also learning about all of the ingredients available for making delicious recipes.
So many ingredients and so little time!
When I’m not in the kitchen, clipping coupons, or watching any and all food-related TV shows, one of the things I may be doing is hanging out with my Boston Terrier, Bubba Jay. Although he likes to watch cooking shows too, if there’s a commercial with a dog in it he’ll try to attack the TV.
He’s an adorable little guy but of course I’m biased. He likes to “help” me out when I’m taking pictures of recipes for the blog but what really happens is that he photobombs my shots like in this recipe that’s called “Limeade Cranberry and Blackberry Compote“.
All content, creation, writing and photography are my own.
Recipes on this Blog
I’m a self-taught cook who likes to come up with recipe ideas, test them out and if they taste really good, I post them on this blog with step-by-step pictures and instructions.
Many of the recipes I make come from inspiration I get from little things like fresh produce that looks good, a new ingredient I find at the grocery store, a pretty bowl or plate, or even food cravings that come to my mind out of nowhere.
Here are some of the most popular recipes on this blog: “Baked Herb and Parmesan Potato Slices“, “How to Barbecue a Turkey on a Kettle Grill“, “Easy Barbecue Chicken with Rice” and “Cherry, Pineapple and Mandarin Orange Ambrosia“.
And here’s a link to the Most Popular Recipes Each Year starting in 2011.
Photography on this Blog
All of the photography on this blog is my own.
One of my favorite things about blogging is taking clear, crisp and colorful images not only for the step-by-step section of each post but also for the finished recipe as well.
I take the majority of the pictures in natural light just outside my kitchen area on a small covered patio, only during certain times of the day when the light is indirect and clear with no cloud cover.
There are times when a recipe doesn’t make the cut for this blog, either because it doesn’t taste as good as I think they should, or the pictures don’t do the recipe justice.
Sometimes no matter how many times I make, remake, and photograph a particular recipe, it just doesn’t look tasty enough to be on this blog. So into the delete file it goes and on to the next delicious recipe.
Since I’ve been blogging for awhile now and my photography has gotten better over the years, I also update older posts with new and larger size images.
