Wow, it's hard to believe that Hun... What's for Dinner is 6 yrs old this month. When I first started this blog, I never thought I would LOVE taking photographs of food, and blogging so much. I remember my first recipe, like it was yesterday. I made Pork Pizzaiola and thought it looked so beautiful on the plate, that I quickly took and picture. The whole time Mr.B and I were having dinner, I kept thinking of how much I wanted to share my dinner with my friends and family. I was so proud, that I could create something so beautiful and delicious, in the kitchen. After dinner, I sat down and googled how to create a blog and the rest is history.
Like any good cook, I've been in ruts. Times where cooking just didn't seem like fun anymore, but more like a dreaded chore. Times where I just needed a break, to tap back into my creative juices. When I first started blogging, I was recreating recipes at home. After a few years, I became confident enough to start developing my own recipes. Reading peoples comments on my blog, increased my confidence and motivated me to create better recipes and to learn how to take better photographs. Though I am no expert, the photos on my blog now are much better than when I first started, LOL. It's so neat to be able to see my photographing skills grow, as you read my blog.
I never would have lasted 6 yrs, if it wasn't for my readers. You guys are the reason my brain is always thinking of new dishes to make. Without you, I'm afraid our meals would be pretty boring and repetitive. It's so satisfying to read your comments and emails, letting me know you've tried a recipe and have enjoyed it. You guys make me WANT to be a better blogger and as a THANK YOU, I have teamed up with two great companies, for an awesome BLOGGIVERSARY GIVEAWAY!
