Elon senior Caroline Plyler has always loved cooking, but it wasn’t until last year that she decided to start her own food blog to highlight all the recipes she tries out.
“My best friend has just always told me, ‘You’re such a food-y! You need to do something with it!,’” Plyler said.
And she did. “Plyler Does Food” is the name of her blog…where she posts weekly recipes that she tries out with her friends and family.
“As a strategic communications major, I thought that my blog would be the perfect way for me to kind of practice using social media and promoting myself,” she said. “I just thought, you know what, this is something cool that I want to attack in the kitchen.”
Plyler showed Phoenix 14 how to make a cookie dough cheesecake, a recipe that she said any Elon student could make in their own kitchens.
“It’s really easy,” she said. “I found it on Pinterest and it only involves six ingredients, so really easy for college students to make.”
But the cookie-dough cheesecake is only one of the many recipes you can find on Plyler’s food blog.
“I’m just a food-y because I love food!,” Plyler said. “I love everything about it.”
To find the recipe for this cheesecake as well as all of Plyler’s others, check out her blog a plylerdoesfood.wordpress.com.
