Two freaking years….
Oodles of recipes….
Lots of giggles….
Tons of new friends!
Happy Birthday Cravings of a Lunatic blog. You make me a happy gal.
This blog was started on a lark, just a hobby to help organize recipes for friends. It has turned into so much more than that.
Because of YOU,
and YOU in the back,
and even YOU rolling your eyes right now.
You folks are why I eat cold food, dream up recipes that quite frankly are a little wacky at times, and drive myself nuts trying to learn how to use my new fangled, fancy shmancy camera that drives me bat shit crazy most days.
I blame you!
And I thank you!
You rock my world!
That is riddled with cold food and sugar!
And I’m loving every minute of it!
You can tell by all the explanation points!
I dig you guys. I love when you email me. I love hearing about your families, your food, your lives. I love when I get emails that say “you must get a gazillion emails a day but…”, it makes me happy cuz I totally don’t get a gazillion millions a day. But the ones I do get I freaking love. Ask hubs, I ramble on and on endlessly about folks who email me. It’s so cool when someone from another country emails you to say hi, or someone emails to say your cat looks like theirs, or you brought back a childhood memory and they want to thank you. Sometimes they even email you because you use a lot of run on sentences and they just want to bring it to your attention and make sure you know that you’re doing so you aren’t all embarrassed by it later which is actually really nice of them to care that much about you and your really long run on sentences that can go on and on forever. That’s a cool thing.
My hope is to keep cooking and baking for you. I hope you all enjoy the things I make. I hope when you make the recipes that they work well for you. I hope when they don’t you go easy on me about it. Sometimes things don’t go as planned in the kitchen. Happens to all of us. You all know if you ever have an issue with a recipe please email me and I will try to help and walk you through any parts you are struggling with. I love to help and never mind being emailed questions about recipes. There’s a learning curve to writing recipes that are easy to follow. I’m learning and growing people. Life is cool!
I’m trying my hardest right now to get the blog up to par. There are lots of little issues with tagging and photos, SEO mumbo jumbo and junk like that. I had zero clue what I was doing when I first started. So I’m spending large parts of my day trying to go in and fix things so the site functions better. I want it to be as easy to use as possible for you guys. There will be a visual recipe index coming soon. That one is beyond my limited capabilities so my designer will be working her magic on that bit. My goal is to make the site easy on the eyes and easy to navigate. All while still cooking up great recipes for you. It’s good to have goals.
So Happy Birthday Cravings of a Lunatic readers, you all deserve a big thank you. I dig that you dig me. I dig you too!
Here’s some recipes you dig:
Some of the posts that meant a lot to me:
It’s been a fun couple of years. I’ve loved sharing not only my recipes but my life with you. I hope you continue to follow my journey in the kitchen and out of it.
Thanks for reading.
Toodles and smoochies! xx
