Very pleased to introduce this month’s Guest Blogger, Redawna.
Food blogs are a source of great recipe ideas, and the world of food blogging a fascinating one. I have enjoyed creating and sharing my recipes but also love how food blogging provides us a vehicle in which we stay connected to and get to meet people who have similar interests. I can honestly say I have friends all over the world thanks to food blogging. Redawna, another Alberta girl, is one of them.
I asked Redawna to share a little bit about herself. Here’s what she had to say.
Foodie, Blogger, Photographer. Loves Social media. Creatively driven, highly competitive and always inspired! Entrepreneurial Spirit. Looking for a new adventure. Loving every moment.
Food and photography have always been my passion. I started Nutmeg Disrupted almost 4 years ago as a place to share the gingerbread house work I do for charity. To be able to raise thousands of dollars by being creative in the kitchen is truly wonderful.
I am also a Field Editor for Taste of Home magazine and love being able to talk about food with people all around the world. It is fantastic being able to collaborate food ideas with those who share the same passion.
In my newest adventure I have landed a job as a Produce Manager for Federated Cooperatives in Barrhead. It is like Christmas every morning tearing into huge pallets of fresh produce. There is nothing better.
I have one published cookbook, Everyday Delectable which you can find on Amazon. You can also find many of my recipes published on the Taste of Home website.
In my off time I am a weather and landscape photographer and gardener and I’m working on building those sections on Nutmeg Disrupted.
One of the cool parts about being a Produce Manager is I am the first one who gets to explore all the amazing fruits and vegetables I bring into the store.
The day the Buddha’s Hand arrived you could smell its amazing aroma long before the box was found amongst all the produce. The entire warehouse was engulfed in the most amazing lemon smell. If you have never seen a Buddha’s Hand they are like no other fruit out there.

They do not contain any juice or seeds, and the white center is not bitter like you would find on other kinds of citrus. They are prefect for zesting and you would use them anywhere where you would use lemon.
In creating a recipe, naturally my mind went straight to vodka. The strong lemon scent seemed a classic fit with vodka. The end result is a magnificent flavored spirit that you could drink on the rocks or mixed with club soda for a refreshing cocktail. This is how the Buddha’s Hand infused Vodka and Cocktail came to be.
