Yes, cooking is still fun. I still enjoy trying out new recipes, though I admit that it can be a bit overwhelming with all those cookbooks, TV food shows, and cooking magazines not to mention food blogs to cook from. I'm actually scrapping more than I was a year ago today. And hockey. Sigh. Still following hockey though my heart is a bit heavy and still in morning for my teams cut short season. As any team that doesn't come out on top says...next year.
And yes, the blog is still fun. I admit I haven't put much effort into it ascetically. Haven't worked on my food photography. Haven't updated the look. Haven't redone my header. I keep forgetting to post scrapbook layouts I've completed. Haven't posted reviews of local restaurants. And if I haven't done something to upgrade the blog or make it better it's only because life outside the blog is more important. The blog only exists while keeping it up and maintaining it is fun.
Thanks to all of you that have commented and those that have just read my posts and gone away. Thank you to those that have tried recipes I've posted, bought cookbooks I've highlighted or tasted recipes I've cooked. Thank you to those that have helped with Typepad/Facebook/Twitter/iPhone problems, have mentored me on food blogging, given me recipes to try or sent articles for me to feature. Thank you for being a part of my blog life.Someone asked me last year when I wrote "We Turn Two" why I used the plural 'we'. Isn't it my blog? Yep, I may do all the work, but Mr. L, my family and friends have a lot to do with what goes on in this blog. So a big thanks to them. The fourth year of Pages, Pucks and Pantry has been dubbed "The year of the food". So who knows where that may take me and you, my readers. So many recipes to try, and not enough time to make them. That doesn't mean I'm not going to try.
