Hello there! My name is Pete, and I am the creator of the What I Ate! blog. I find enjoyment in all things food. Being either cooking or eating out, I love writing and talking about food!

I am originally from Maine and moved to Florida in 2014 with my partner in crime, Heather, and my two children Peter Ryan and Lily. We also have a year old Labradoodle named Maple.  We don’t always agree on what’s for dinner, but we can decide that we all love food!

The goal of my blog is to provide recipes for the food I create, along with reviews of the different products I use. I love to try new gadgets, grills, and smokers.  I also love to smoke and cook foods that are for home cooks that are at every skill level.  If you are starting with smoking and BBQ and would like to have some simple starter recipes, or if you are more advanced and would like to try a different method for your cook, you will find something on this blog for you!
