I started this blog in the Spring of 2009. I had been reading Chowhound and various other food blogs for quite some time and decided to try it for myself. Additionally, there seemed to be very few Pittsburgh based food blogs floating around. I have since learned there were likely more than I thought (sometimes it is tough to track these things down!) but I still feel there is certainly room for Snickie.
At first, I tried blogging about all my meals and my workout schedules, etc. This did not go so well for me – I love reading healthy living blogs but these things truly take time and devotion. Therefore, Snickie has slowly morphed into a Pittsburgh-centric ‘foodie’ blog. I blog about things I cook and things I eat. I also may post about totally random stuff from time to time – you just never know.
Way back when, my brother and I referred to snacks as “snickies”. Not sure when or why this started but it has lived on. You can also refer to a snack as a “snick” or a “snick snick” if you should so choose to. While naming the blog, the term popped into my head.
I am a young professional living within the Pittsburgh city limits. I truly love to eat food, read about food, and think about food. Oh yes, and I like to travel too. You can reach me at email@example.com. Thanks for visiting!
