Last year, I set a goal for myself. To blog at least twice a week. It made sense. I had plenty to say and was always cooking and of course, always eating. Well it started off pretty well but somewhere in 2011, I dropped off to once a week.
There’s a reason for that drop off. Earlier this year, I started freelancing for Tree.com and help run their Food & Dining Channel. It’s exciting and while it’s still in the infant stages and quickly growing, it’s a challenge I look forward to despite working on the weekends. But it has it’s rewards: I get paid to do what I love. While I’m not the only blogger, I actually manage a team of fantastic people just as passionate about food as I am.
I still maintain my day job, my weekends and nights are filled with this project and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy.
This isn’t a note to say that I’m giving up on My Burning Kitchen — it will always my baby.
Some highlights of what I’ve contributed include:
- A Chat with Giada De Laurentiis (if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll see the photo of me with Giada — FYI my head is larger than hers)
- Spring Bruschetta: Strawberries, Gorgonzola and Chives (my favorite appetizer)
- Kentucky Derby Favorite: Run for The Roses Derby Pie (addictive but super easy pie — need I say more??)
I have some fun posts planned so be sure to check out the website on a regular basis.
Thanks for reading!
