Seriously, if somebody would have told me six years ago that starting a blog had the life altering potential that it indeed has – in so many ways – , I would have laughed it off. But it most definitely does! Today I’m blessed with a job I couldn’t love more, I have written two cookbooks and made dear friends along the way.
Even though most of the ground rules still apply today, food blogging has changed dramatically over the last years. While the number of food bloggers, back in 2005, was so low that everybody knew each other, today, trying to keep up with the exponentially growing number of new food blogs will make your head spin. The sheer number as well as the level of creativity out there is simply amazing and yet I love to go back to my pals from the early days (although their number is decreasing steadily); many of them have become a trustworthy recipe source that has never let me down in the kitchen.
To top things off, whenever I think about my blogger friends, some fabulous recipes are inseparably connected to those memories and vice versa: e.g. Flo Braker’s pain d’amande recipe comes to mind whenever I think about David, or take the best hangover cure I added to my recipe repertoire, always reminds me of Petra, who publishedthis herring salad recipe back in 2007.
We are currently traveling, so I won’t be able to share some neat new recipes nor properly celebrate six years of blogging here on deliciousdays.com with some bubbly (Franciacorta comes to mind, Hande!). However, I can highlight some of YOUR favorite recipes on our blog, the ones that continuously trigger the most enthusiastic feedback, may it be via comments or emails. Do give them a try (if you haven’t already), you won’t be sorry. See you in a bit.
