About Devon

Hi and welcome! My name is Devon Stiles and this is my little space on the internet where I like to ramble.

Years ago when I started this blog, it was primarily about my adventures with food. As people do, I’ve changed and evolved. Yeah, of course I still love food and wine, but I write about more than that these days.

I’m a proud Florida State alum & I love football (Go Jaguars!). I live in Jacksonville, Fl, & I work in marketing. I’m a freelance writer who has contributed to EU Jacksonville and Void. I’ve been also featured in The Florida Times Union and on First Coast Living.

If you’re looking for the adult film star, Devon Stiles, you’re in the wrong place. Sorry!

I have an incredible horse named Petunia that I compete on in the hunters.

Petunia Jumping

I used to be super into running, and I’ve finished 11 half marathons.

I am by no means an expert on food or cooking or anything like that: I’ve never even attended a cake decorating class, much less culinary school. I’ve learned everything I know from my mama, Martha Stewart & the fabulous food blogging community.

Over the past year or so, I’ve invested a lot of time and money into improving my photography. It’s become quite a passion of mine. I shoot with a Nikon D3000 and my lens of choice is the 35mm f/1.8.

Have a question/inquiry/request or just want to send me stuff? Email me at devon.stiles@gmail.com, follow me on Twitter, see the crap I’m obsessed with on Pinterest, watch me attempt to be artsy on Instagram, or find me on Facebook.


  1. Hello Devon,
    Just a quick message to ask if you would be interested in a ‘mutual’ following on twitter. I am currently following you now and am awaiting for your follow-back. (#FYI I do RT’s ‘anytime’ for all #Triathletes #Cyclists #UltraRunners & #Marathoners who follow me on Twitter and have something important they want mentioned…)

    All the very best for the rest of 2012 and beyond Devon. Look forward to hearing from you…


  2. At last someone who isn’t afraid to speak their mind!
    I look forward to your further posts. Keep up the good
    work & fight.

  4. Can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE start a YouTube Channel and show us how to make some of your favorite foods??? Ughhh…everything looks so good!!

    • That’s an awesome idea, Elsa! I actually have a few video ideas in the works and I can’t wait to share them!

    • Hi! Just checking in! Did you start a channel yet?! I sooooo need to see each step when I make ANYTHING ;p

      Take care!!!!

      • I promise it’s on my to-do list! I’ve actually had several people talk to me about doing this… I just need to schedule some time for it to get it done. Thanks for checking up and making me accountable!

  5. Hey Devon – I’m not sure if you remember me, but we met at Tess’s wedding a couple of years ago. I stumbled on your blog and wanted to say hello. My ex and I split up almost 2 years ago and I went through a lot of similar emotions. I live in SoCal now and I love it! You should come visit. Or we should chat sometime. 🙂 -Danielle

  6. I found your blog by wanting to check out Ovinte and they still have ‘coming soon’ on their website. Lame. Your blog came up. You love wine, food, to run, to travel. And you live in Jax…you are…me! We need to be friends, I live in Jax Beach!

  7. You’ve got some great recipes on your blog! Thanks so much for doing this. Can I ask, what is a “food bitch”?


  8. Hi Devon! I’m Marcy and I love reading your blog. I especially love anyone that refers to herself as a bitch, let alone a “food bitch,” since I consider myself to be both as well. Ha! Not necessarily qualified or with credentials…. Just a chick who loves food and lives to eat (for the above person who asked what a food bitch is). 🙂 Hey, did you come out with that YouTube channel yet????? No one asked in the last 30 seconds, so I figured I better? 🙂 Kidding. Keep up the great blog. I’m sure it’s a ton of work & I appreciate what you offer as it is. Inspiring! Take care from PA. I look forward to reading more!
