Welcome! I’m Julia, and this is Minneapolis Hunter. I started this blog a few years ago to keep my mind occupied during the long Minnesota winter months. I wrote about food, and fell in love with cooking; I wrote about gardening, and fell in love with growing vegetables. Over the past four years, cooking has evolved from how-to-cook-it to what-sounds-good to what’s-best-for-us. I’ve taken cues from following blogs I love, cooking with people who know what they’re doing, and listening to those who are always on the cusp of new food trends. This is not my full time gig, so if there’s radio silence, I’ll be back as soon as I get the chance. You can follow me on Instagram (minneapolishunter) to see what I’m cooking or what our dog is doing (usually sleeping), or on Pinterest for (mostly) recipe ideas.
