5 years ago, in March 2011, I was living in Germany. I had been there for almost a year by that point. I was, for the first time in my life, really getting into cooking, because I had a kitchen of my own and someone to cook with and for. Since then, a LOT has changed. I still have the same H. by my side, but we have made two transatlantic moves in that time — back to Canada and then to the UK, both in 2012. We’ve now lived 3.5 years in a city I can only describe as dazzling, overwhelming, amazing, and challenging.
In five years, I have posted 381 times, 284 of them about cooking or baking, 25 on travel, and the rest a random assemblage. Things have come a long way since my first post (on fajitas!). I am surprised just how much I have learned in that time. I have pushed myself and gone outside of my comfort zone in terms of what I am able to do in the kitchen, and really quite astonished with my progress when I think back to five years ago.
I have never promoted this blog beyond sharing it with family and friends, and want to sincerely thank everyone who has read it along the way! Thank you for sticking with me!! 🙂
