Description

Every Wednesday on My Plate is Always Full, Meseidy and Rebecca discuss and debate all things food. Most discussions are friendly and some get a bit heated, sometimes there is a food fight. My Plate is Always full will have a little food history and science, mixed with a little bit of cooking technique, some food culture, recipes, and a sprinkle of inappropriate humor. Meseidy Rivera (The Noshery), and Rebecca Lindamood (Foodie with Family) are friends, former chefs, and food bloggers who have a lot to say about food.
