Terrific Two's


Friday, August 10, 2012

this little blog is

That's right!

Two years ago, I decided that I'd start a blog.

I had no idea what I was doing . . .

. . .and still don't!

I started writing out recipes that people requested.

Sometimes I'd make the recipe and take a picture,

like the professional bloggers do.

But I wasn't a professional.

And I'm still not!

Then I started trying new recipes, whether found or created by me,
and posting that too.

I worked to improve the pictures . . .

all the while, not really realizing that people are reading.

It had become a past-time of sorts.

I'm not a writer.

I'm not a baker or a chef.

I'm just a mom.

A mom who is happy in life;

loves her family;

enjoys cooking;

and at the end of the day -- my kitchen is where we gather.

We gather to laugh.

To talk.

To slow down, just for a bit.

During the busy day, it's at the table where "family" happens.

Here I am, two years later, still blogging about food.

Through your reading of these recipes, my hope is that in the kitchen you find enjoyment, pleasure, and laughter.

I'm hoping that the recipes I share with you bring your family together too.

I looked back over these past 2 years and was amazed by the stats. Maybe you're interested too!

To those of you who read my ramblings and are brave enough to try a new recipe . . . or make an old, forgotten recipe from years ago . . .

Thank you!

I hope the time you spend in your kitchen is fun and you're not just feeding your family; you're feeding their soul.

To my Mr. and sweet cherubs -- thank you too! You withhold a bite so that I can take a picture! You rate a recipe to see if it's "blog worthy" or not! You hold the plate of food in "perfect" light so that I can take a descent picture! You even buy me kitchen gadgets for presents! I love you guys!
