Charlotte and the (dead) Flying Lizard Hong Kong 2010

Someone who can’t stop eating would be a glutton but what do you call someone who can’t stop thinking about food – who can’t stop thinking about what she’s having for her next meal or who can’t stop thinking about what she’s going to bake/make/cook/eat/drink/whip up/slurp up/serve up next?

Well, I haven’t quite found the word to REALLY describe the obsession that I’ve got but this is a place where you get to see all the things that I ♥ to make and eat and more – meant to whet your appetite (I’m horrible I know!) and inspire you to cook (horrible but with a goal in mind :)) so that we can all share in the joy of a life that revolves around food. ♥

I promise it won’t hurt one bit and I’m willing to let you keep tabs on me (even my mom can’t!). There are times when I might venture into the somewhat cringe-worthy world of food (think chicken hearts, rooster combs, deep-fried pig’s intestines and insects etc) but don’t worry, you can put your hand in mine – they are only pictures after all. Most times, I assure you, it’ll teeter on the side of deliciousness!

With your tummy’s (and my tummy’s) interest at ♥,

Charlotte T.

    How did you get your about page to show up? Mine won’t! 😦

    Sorry for bothering you.. But.. How can you make your post on the home page doesn’t show all the post and shows “continue reading –>” instead? I can’t find how to make it shows like that.. T_T

      hi bakashironeko, when you are editing your post you need to click on the icon that has a pop that says ‘Insert More Tag’ at the spot you want to create a page break so your whole post doesnt show (i know how lengthy it can be!). A shortcut is to key ALT+SHIFT+T to create the ‘continue reading’ at a point in your post
      hope this helps!

    I love the slide show in the blog that allows you to go forward and reverse and stop.
    How in the world did you do that?

      hi charles,

      it’s cool eh? you can add a slideshow by uploading all the media that you want and place it in order by numbering them under the ‘Gallery’ tab for your post and at the bottom of the pop up there is an ‘Insert Slideshow’ button and voila you have a slideshow in your blog post!

    Hi Charlotte,

    I was just wondering if you could help me. I just switched my blog from Blogger to WordPress recently and I’m struggling to find my feet in WordPress. I’m messaging you because I’ve also chosen the Bueno theme but can’t figure out how to add ‘buttons’ that are an image & a link on a my side bar. Please can you help me? I’ve googled and youtubed and not found any helpful advice. I’d appreciate any help you can give me. You can email me at:

    Hiya! Love your blog – well done. Nice name…
    Hoping you can help – how did you get the “like” icon to appear at the bottom of each post? I have same theme as you and cannot seem to get this functionality to work…
    Thanks in advance!

    Great blog! I’ve got a question though. How do you make it so the likes and twitter/fb icons show up after the post?

    • char November 28, 2012 at 3:41 pm #

      thanks melgrace5!
      for those icons, you go to Settings on the side bar and then go to Sharing. you should be able to work it out there! you just need to place those social comm platforms under ‘Enable’.

    Hi Charlotte, I L-O-V-E your blog! But when I tried to follow your blog, it said that my email was invalid! =( Can you check into this for me? I’d love to get notifications whenever you have a new post.


    • char December 3, 2012 at 9:15 am #

      hi brenda, thank you so much! That is so sweet 🙂 I just tried punching in several emails in that box to follow the blog and i got the invalid message too. I’ve notified wordpress and hopefully will hear from them soon and will keep you updated 🙂 in the meantime happy reading and eating! 🙂

    Hi Charlotte,
    Great blog! well presented, I am creating mine new blog in Bueno (love the simplicity) but not finding the backend of creating it as simple as I thought it would be. Can you please help me, I’ve read a million tutorials and can’t seem to find a solution. How do I change my background to white and remove the dots? Thank you so much!!!!!

    • char April 30, 2013 at 10:06 am #

      hey GurvyGreen,
      Thank you!
      To change the background, go to Appearance> Customize> Colors and you will see an option to change the background color. Let me know if this doesn’t work!

      Cheers and good luck with your blog building!

      • momtomomhealth April 30, 2013 at 11:12 am #

        Hi Char,
        Unfortunately when I go to appearance there is no customize option and nothing about colors/background. When I go to Bueno, there is only theme options and few color choice changes, no white background option & no dot removal. I purchased my domain through GoDaddy and uploaded the theme, do you think that makes a difference?
        Thanks for the quick reply and help!!!!!!

      • char April 30, 2013 at 11:14 am #

        That’s interesting. You may want to write to wordpress about it. they have all the answers!

    Came upon your site at the WordPress theme showcase. I like your newsletter subscription message. Very creative. Just to let you know I featured it in my blog at “Ideas to customise your blog’s sidebar”,

      Thank you so much! 🙂
