Over 3 years in fact. So why come back now considering I never had a large reader base anyways? Truth be told it has been a while since I made my Chicken Tortilla Soup, and I can’t find my recipe for it, so I wandered back over to my long-neglected blog. I’ve done this a few times, so I figure, if anything, I will at least always have my recipe box accessible to myself.
In 3 years a lot has changed. I started the blog out of sheer boredom. Three years ago I was a recent law school graduate, with no employment prospects in the midst of a recession, waiting patiently for my bar exam results. In short, I was unemployed with nothing better to do than cook all day, takes pictures of it, and write blog posts. Fortunately that all ended early 2009. I bounced around between a few awful temp jobs until I landed a “real job” which I’ve held down for the past couple years.
I still read blogs daily, although more recently they’ve been the shelter or wedding variety. Work, plus planning a wedding and living in a fixer upper doesn’t leave a lot of time for cooking, or blogging for that matter. But here I am, back, hoping to get into it again. Even though my life has been consumed with stripping wallpaper and dress shopping lately, I will keep the topics to the food. My house may be a DIY disaster, and my wedding needs emergency help from David Tutera, but I can still make a mean cheesecake.
