We’re finally online!

R.  and I have been working on this site for the past few weeks, just trying to get things up and running and working properly.

We’ll be writing about and sharing photos of our travels around the world and the food we encounter as well as our everyday lives, with a focus on food of course.

We’re still trying to sort out some kinks in the layout of the blog, so please let us know if you notice anything that doesn’t look/work right so we can try to fix it. For now you can either leave a comment or e-mail us at eatmytortes@gmail.com
