First Impressions.

Hi I’m Julia. I’m a lover of all things food, travel, health, and italian.

Why the funny blog name? Well the name is simply a testament to my crazy obsession with food and my reputation for carrying random food items in my backpack. Plus, I love butternut squash.

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to ride my bike to the farmers’ market. However, it is not until after I have bought a pound of heirloom tomatoes, 2 pints of blueberries, 6 ears of corn, 3 zucchini, and a cantaloupe, that I realize all that I have to transport my bounty is my bike, my backpack, and…myself. Nevertheless, I will ride the 30 minutes home in the sweltering heat on my rusty-chained bike, if it means that I can finally make a caprese salad with my fresh heirloom tomatoes or that I can cut into that ridiculously ripe cantaloupe just to get a taste of summer.

Also, it is not uncommon to walk into the kitchen only to see my puzzled mother pulling a butternut squash or some other oddly-shaped root vegetable out of my backpack because apparently my dog has an amazing olfactory system and was sticking her snout in places it should not be…

As you can see, food is always on my mind- or rather, on my back. Therefore, this blog is devoted to my insatiable fascination and outlandish adventures with food.
