Sheri Wetherell

Hello! I'm the co-founder and CEO at Foodista.com. I grew up surrounded by food on both sides of my family. My paternal grandmother owned a diner for many years, and my maternal grandmother (and mother of five daughters) was always found in the kitchen baking or whipping up garden-fresh tomato juice. My mother instilled in me the importance of healthy, wholesome eating and fed the entire family homemade soups, breads, and fresh carrot juice. Through my grandmothers, mother, and numerous travels overseas, I developed my love of food. I honed my palate and taste for travel by hopping planes with my airline pilot father, spent nearly a year studying in Italy and traveling in Greece, and taught English in Tokyo for three years. My professional background is in traditional and online marketing, where I worked for companies such as Amazon.com, Microsoft, Nordstrom, and eBay. With Foodista.com I have finally found my true passion - immersion in the world of food. I'm also the proud mama of daughter Emery.

After seeing Sooke Harbour House featured on Anthony Bourdain's: No reservations, Barnaby and I looked at each other and said, "We have got to go there." We love food and we love travel, so we took...

Flax Oat Bran Muffins

Sometimes I just crave an uber-healthy muffin, one that's chock full of good-for-you stuff like flax, bran, raisins...you know the kind I mean. They don't have to be big to do the trick. In...

Opa! I love spinach, but sometimes just sautéing it or making a salad can be boring and tiresome. We still want those nutrients though, don't we? If you want to mix it up a bit and serve spinach in...

One year Barnaby's mother Mandy made a tomato aspic that was the yummiest thing ever. She served it with Thanksgiving dinner at her home in Palm Springs. We ate outside and the aspic was a perfect...

During the cold months when I lived in Japan I loved a nice hot bowl of nikujaga. In jest, I used to call this dish "Mick Jagger." To me, when my students said "nikujaga" or...

Well, I don't have a recipe for you today, but I couldn't resist sharing these beautiful purple peppers with you. I had never seen the likes of them before I spied them in my friend's garden. They'...

We've been so busy lately building Foodista (there's more than just the blog!) that I haven't had the time (or energy) to whip up, style, and photograph the dishes I love sharing with you. So please...

I love when my friend's mom, Val, comes to town. Her English accent soothes me and, being a fabulous cook, her desserts never fail to make me swoon with delight. Remember her Apple Tart? Yup,...

At the end of summer, my aunt Mimi and I used to roll up our sleeves and dive into pepper jelly making. It was so fun spending the afternoon filling jar after jar with our beautiful, sweet and spicy...

Sorry music lovers, I'm not talking about the band, I'm talking about the capsicum. Although both do add spice to your life. You don't have to be a "hot head" (a.k.a. lover of spicy foods) to...

My new favorite thing -thanks to my friend Tracy who made it for us the other night- is herb yogurt. Made with multiple fresh herbs one bite is like a mouthful of your lovely herb garden (minus the...

If I were to live my life as a confection I'd definitely choose to be a cupcake. They're cute, everybody loves them, and because they're the perfect size you never hear, "Ugh, I really shouldn't...

My good friend, Amy (food lover, caterer, organic gardener, food show radio producer, and all around girl about town), gave me this recipe for a Turkish garbanzo (aka chick pea) salad and I just had...

I've said it before, salmon runs through our blood here in the Pacific Northwest. If there's one food that sums up our culture I'm certain it would be salmon. In our home we always have...

I hated beets as a kid. I only liked my grandma's pickled beets because they were sweet. But as an adult I can't get enough of them. And what's easier than tossing a bunch in the oven to roast? Mix...

I love fennel. It grows like a weed in your garden and tastes deliciously sweet and licoricey. It's wonderfully fragrant and adds that certain missing something to many dishes. You know when you're...

My mother's friend brought the seeds of these beautiful runner beans back from Italy sometime last year, and they were finally harvested. I have to admit, I kinda like the idea of her secreting...

I really want to like healthy bread. Especially the types that I refer to as "bird seed" bread: spelt, sprouted wheat, uber-whole grain packed with nuts and seeds and everything short of wood pulp....

Is there a better gift that a food writer could give us food lovers than a year-long diary of what he (or she) cooks and eats? I think not. But that is precisely what British writer, Nigel Slater,...

Peaches, peaches, peaches! They're everywhere right now, and that makes me feel downright peachy (sorry, I couldn't resist). We recently purchased a flat of beautiful yellow peaches, and every day...

Heirloom tomatoes are worth their often-expensive price. Deep red, orange, yellow, green, black (dark purple red), these tomatoes always make the most beautiful arrangement. The best thing about...

Photo: Brandi Sims, CC License There are certain snacks and treats that take me back to my childhood. One such treat are graham crackers. I loved to snap them on their perforated edges and dip the...

Mieng Kum

Do you ever have a craving for something, but you just can't seem to put your taste bud on it? Not sure if you want something salty, sweet, sour or spicy? Maybe you want it all! If so, then I...

I love tea. Actually, I think I prefer it to coffee, but don't tell my fellow Seattleites that or I'll be hung from the nearest Starbuck's. I used to be able to find my favorite teas from Murchie's...

You all have been enjoying the limoncello recipe so much I thought I'd stay on the Italian train and give you another tasty treat. Bomboloni are the Italian version of doughnuts - without the holes...
