1 Year Ago Today

Exactly 1 year ago, today, I started this food blog. Happy blogiversary to me!

To be honest, I didn’t know how long I would keep this up when I started blogging. Most hobbies I attempt to start end up sitting half done on a shelf somewhere. However, food blogging has given me a whole new perspective on food and health concerns.

If I didn’t food blog, I may not have researched and found all these different dairy free recipes for Gary. I may not have opened my eyes to what different types of food are out there for us to start trying. I might not have started cooking religiously until I was unhealthy and broke.

Since I’ve started, Gary has also joined me in the kitchen. We have learned to cook and appreciate the meals we have together now. I think we’ve come a long way since our TV dinner days.

I think if someone like me (who’s messed up Jell-O before) can cook and come up with meals on the fly, anybody can. In one short year, I’ve learned so many tips and tricks. I don’t see this blog ending anytime soon.

On a side note, these next few months may be sparse because of my long work hours and minimal time in the kitchen as a result. I do have many recipes to come from my birthday party next Saturday!

  1. Happy Blog Birthday!
    Congrats on keeping up with it - I know how tiring it can be sometimes. For me - it has also gotten me out of my comfort zone and trying new things (ahem...the stacks of recipes that sit on my bedside for months/years on end).
    Keep up the great work!
