The Big 1000 !!!

Well friends, it finally happened. The blog hit 1000 visits during the course of the day. I would like to thank you all for your support and interest in my latest "hobby". I had been thinking about creating a blog and then a friend of mine said the same thing. I was very hesitant about creating this site and unsure about how much work would be involved and whether or not I would follow through.

I am happy to say that I have had a blast testing recipes and researching tips for everyone. This testing also has helped Kevin and I to eat at home more, which in most cases is a good thing! I find myself paying more attention to details of the recipes and focusing on having the end result turn out well. I made a vow to test each recipe prior to posting to ensure success for those who make the dishes in their homes. I promise that I will continue to test and post recipes and will also do my best to research more topics for the "Did you know..." feature. Hopefully, I will be able to remember more great stories from my past which will naturally be related to food.

I would personally like to take this opportunity to thank, first and foremost, Kevin. He has been so patient with my spending nights in front of the TV while I type away. He has been very patient with my "staging" the food for pictues before we can eat. Anyone who knows me, can personally vouch for my countless "hobbies" and he has been so supportive with my many endeavors.

Secondly, I would like to thank you all for being loyal "followers" of this project. You have been inspiration for me on those days where I really don't feel like cooking. Knowing that I need to post for you all has been just what I need to keep me in check.

That being said, please continue reading and if you know anyone who would be interested in the content of the blog, feel free to have them send me an email and I will add them to the list. I also like to challenge you all to post more comments, ask more questions, and if you have topics you would like me to address, send me an email and I will be happy to include it.

Thanks again, my friends and remember let's live to eat, not eat to live!
