Blogger Spotlight: Da' Stylish Foodie

Angie Dumas began her blog Da' Stylish Foodie when a friend suggested she document her adventures dining out with family and friends. Angie has a strong passion for food and fashion, and her blog allows those close to her to follow her on her foodie journey. On trips to New York City and New Orleans, Angie makes sure to document her dining, offering her own recommendations for her readers to try should they find themselves traveling in the same cities.

As well as restaurant suggestions, Angie also features her own recipes as well as recipes that feature sponsored ingredients like Morton Salt and Bonne Maman Preserves. She is based in Louisiana and celebrates the finest Cajun and Creole cooking on her blog.
