Over the last two years this blog has given me enormous strength and creativity in the kitchen and the blogging world. I’ve never been so determined to make my food so darn pretty or master dishes that seemed impossible. I've revamped my basic food blog a million times over and most recently I've added some pages: About Me, Recipe Index, My Fave Blogs, Cooking Goals, and Cookbook resources that I love and adore. I'm always revising the blog when I have time because it's my unstoppable nature to continue to grow with this blog. Like my fear of yeast - it had haunted me for two years, and now with a couple recipe attempts and failures under my apron. I'm pretty confident with my bread making abilities but I still have lots to learn and bake with bread. Moreover, I have grown in experience from my culinary journey and nurtured my growing palate for food. Who knew that I would love chicken tikka masala or butternut squash risotto?
But I really wanted to say thank you for spending your valuable time here and listening to my rambling stories. Sharing my stories of married life with my hungry husband and cooking multitudes of recipes has greatly shaped my foodie life. We all need food in our lives and maybe I’m just talking in circles about food. It's just an unspoken feeling that I love cooking and eating food. Good food makes me delirious and happy and I really love sharing it with everyone.
In honor of my Second Blogiversary, I wanted to highlight two of my favorite posts from the past year:
Our 2nd year anniversary dinner of the delicious Boeuf Bourguignon. It truly has been one of my favorite meals from Julia Child and definitely one of the hardest labors of love in making this meal, too.
Vanilla Bean cheesecake with raspberry puree that I had made to celebrate Easter with our family. I absolutely loved this cheesecake, it was rich and decadent and oh-so pretty. Easter dinner was absolutely perfect with it. (It's funny but both recipes are from the same month. I guess I love April recipes!)
