Somehow the second birthday of my blog has come around already.
I'm not sure how it happened so fast; I still feel like a newbie blogger – flushed with excitement, discovery and joy.
Certainly my enthusiasm (and verbosity) hasn't shown any signs of abating. In my first year, I wrote 127 posts. This last year I've posted 216!
Even more so than last year, blogging has brought me so much, not least some wonderful friendships that I truly cherish. Of course, there have also been fantastic opportunities to meet and learn from chefs and experts, visit fascinating events, review products and cookery books, attend fun and informative cookery courses, review restaurants and hotels and so much more. And of course, there's been time for a bit of cooking too!
this last year I have persuaded my husband Pete to join in with this latest hobby of mine, in the guise of Pete Drinks. (He's also making more regular updates on our gardening blog, now that we have an allotment to supplement our kitchen garden).
I'm more excited about food and drink than ever and can't wait to see what my third year of blogging brings.
Here are my favourite 65 posts from the last year of blogging:
Also, a few reminders:
- There are 2 places remaining on the first ever Mamta's Kitchen all-day cookery course, lunch and dinner – celebrating 10 years of Mamta's Kitchen and raising funds for the Khushboo Welfare Society.
- I'm asking fellow bloggers to take up my challenge to find soft drink matches for food – will you join me?
- If you haven't bought your chocolate Easter egg for this year, you might find some inspiration in The Great Easter Egg Review.
Lastly, I'd also like to wish a happy blog birthday to my friend Dom at Belleau Kitchen, which celebrates it's first birthday today!
