Nine Years

January 14, 2013 | By | COMMENTS


Nine years ago I wrote this and my life changed. Thank you all for continuing to make this blog a place where I can share recipes, tell emotional stories, make cartoons about trips to fancy restaurants, write songs, reenact the fall of Saigon from “Miss Saigon” with eggs in my microwave and procure advice about where to eat when I travel. Without you there to cheer me on, I’m not sure how far I would’ve gotten. So thanks for making these nine years so much fun…you’ve allowed me to support myself doing something that I love. This is your celebration too.

    Thank YOU for the great blog, it’s always a pleasure to read. I loved your song about pesky waiters. I just tried to watch the “Miss Saigon” clip but it’s blocked because I’m in Australia :( (Trying to entertain myself through a stifling heatwave, going through your archived summer posts) Oh, I made your peach, tomato and mozzarella salad with fresh fruit from my mum’s garden, and it was the BEST! Thanks again and keep up the hard work :)

    I think it’s awesome that in your first ever post you included the truly incredible sentence:

    Are you tired of not having salmonella?

    Congratulations on 9 years!
