I can't believe my cooking blog has 39 followers. It is so exciting to see that number grow. Every time I get a comment and every time I get a new follower I get excited. I started this blog mostly as a documentation of the foods I eat and the recipes I made. The joke in my marriage is that I can't cook the same meal twice. And it is true! Everytime I make something I'm always tweaking it or subbing some ingredient or other. A few times my husband would tell me, "This is GREAT just the way it is! Please write it down so you can make it this way again!"
Well I never would take the time to write it down and the next time I'd make that dish hubby would sigh and say this is good, but man, last time it was so great! (Of course sometimes the new version really was better!) So I decided one day to finally start writing things down. Then I got a few followers and that was fun. Next I had friends and family tell me that they loved getting recipe ideas from me. I started this blog almost exactly 2 years ago and it is fun to look back at all the fun I've had and how much I've learned with cooking over the past two years. It's neat to see the phases I have been through too. From following a low-calorie/high fiber diet (read here why I no longer believe that is healthy) to being lost about health and just cooking whatever I wanted, from learning how to make homemade breads (here was my first bread!) and now following the principles of the Real Food movement set forth by the Weston A. Price Foundation.
I want to let out a big thank you to all of my followers. You all mean a lot to me. Like I said, I love reading your comments and hearing if you've made some version of one of my meals. If I've inspired you to try something new, I love hearing about that too. Even if you tried something and it failed (I've had plenty of failed experiments too!) please take a moment to share with me! If you enjoy reading The Frickin Chicken, I'd love for you to share it with your family and friends. And I did start a Facebook page a bit ago. Please join me on Facebook where the conversation is picking up! If you haven't ever read about how The Frickin Chicken got its name, it's a funny short story and you can read it here.
