Has it really been two years since my very first blog post? In some ways it seems like only yesterday--I'm still figuring things out, learning, experimenting. In others, it's almost as if I've been blogging forever. It's become so much of who I am.
Mrs.W's Kitchen began as a creative outlet. I love to cook, and chronicling my kitchen escapades seemed a natural extension of that love. This blog has taken me to places that I never thought it would: meeting people all over the world, connecting with strangers that I might never have otherwise, and a way to touch base with my real-life friends. It's also challenged the way I think about food through various foodblogging and charity events. Overall, it's a fantastic experience.
Thank you for sharing this journey with me. Thank you for visiting, for reading, for lurking and for commenting. Thanks for your encouragement, enthusiasm, and even the sympathy you showed when we lost our beloved pet this past year. Thank you for the private email notes, too. These all enrich my life in ways that cannot be adequately described in words.
I thought I'd list some favorite posts below--some of yours (reader favorites that continue to get regular hits) and some of mine (posts, or foods, that I particularly like).
