100 posts in just over 100 days!!!
When I first started this blog, back at the end of May, I thought that it was, well, kind of silly. A dear friend of mine suggested one day that I should add a cooking blog to my little wimpy site, so that people could see the food that I prepare. I thought for sure that no one could possibly be interested in what, if anything, that I might have to say about food. But, I figured what was the worst that could happen. So I set about photographing and posting the food that I was making, hoping that a few of my close friends might actually one day read it. What I have found, instead, is a whole community of talented, passionate, foodie friends, and many wonderful new opportunities. I have been so deeply touched and humbled by all of the support and positive feedback that I have received over the last three months. I want to thank all of you who take the time out of your busy lives to stop by every now and then to see what kind of trouble I’m stirring up in the kitchen. If you have discovered a new recipe, learned a new skill, or found even a little bit of kitchen inspiration then I have succeeded.
And this is only the beginning! Food is my passion (read: crazy obsession), and this blog has been a source of tremendous inspiration for me, and has provided me with a great deal of personal satisfaction. Thank you all for your encouragement, kind words of advice, and pretending to listen even long after I simply could not shut up about food.
In order to show my gratitude. . . I am proud to announce Jacob’s Kitchen’s very first giveaway!!! That’s right folks. One lucky reader will win a $50 gift card to Williams-Sonoma!!!!!!!!!! (Good for both in store and online purchases!) I can spend hours in Williams-Sonoma fantasizing about their specialty foods, coveting their serving-ware, and admiring their gorgeous little kitchen implements. They really are the crème de la crème of cookery. And my hope is that whoever wins this gift card will find it helpful in furthering their kitchen arsenal.
