Thank you so so much everyone for participating in the Tasty Yummies 2-year Blogiversary Giveaway and thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all of your lovely comments!! Random.org gave me the random #11 for the winner. Congrats to our winner Alex - who will be getting the Tasty Yummies / Hero Design happiness care package of goodies!! Thanks again everyone!
Today is the two year blogiversary of Tasty Yummies and I can hardly believe it. When I started this blog two years ago, I never thought it could turn into what it has become today. I started writing two years ago just after I lost 30lbs by changing the way I was eating. So many people were asking me what I was eating, how I had time to cook, etc. – so I thought I would start writing up my recipes to share them with people who were interested. I honestly didn’t think anyone would read all of this, let alone be cooking using my recipes or be inspired to change the way they themselves are eating. It still blows my mind every day when I log in here to read the comments and look at the stats. In the last year the amount of people that visit Tasty Yummies seems to go up every week and I am so incredibly humbled by this.
In the last two years so many aspects of my life have changed, but one of the many things that will never change for me is my love for creating in the kitchen and all of the delicious, healthy and clean foods that you can cook and bake, when you just get into the kitchen and start playing. I have so much gratitude for all of the wonderful people, like you, that come to this site, click around, comment and even print out my recipes and try them, you continually inspire me to create more. Just last week I received an email from someone who recently found out she can no longer have gluten, she felt lost and confused and didn’t even know where to begin with her new lifestyle. She wrote me to tell me that she had found my web site and had already tried a few of my recipes and she was instantly put at ease and excited for her new journey. The overwhelming sense of pride that consumes me reading those types of emails and comments give me the energy to make cookies at 10:00 at night or spend an entire weekend trying to figure out a waffle recipe that I know can be done. It makes me happy to know that even if just one of my recipes on here allows someone to see how easy cooking and eating gluten-free and clean can be, then it is all worth it to me.
Tasty Yummies was always meant to be a hobby for me, something I did in between all of the other aspects of my life. Many of you already know this, but my husband and I own our own business, Hero Design Studio, where we specialize in custom design and illustration as well as hand silkscreen printed goods and wares. We are so fortunate to not only do what we love, but to do it with each other. Since we closed our boutique of nearly 5-years ago, just over a year ago and moved our studio home to really be able to focus on our work, I have had even more freedom to create in the kitchen, since it now means just a short walk downstairs. Being that all aspects of my life are more intertwined than ever, I am obviously influenced in many ways from all of my loves. Whether it be design, cooking, yoga, etc – they have all come together in a way, that allows every single day to be a happy one!
In honor of Tasty Yummies’ two year blogiversary – I wanna share my happiness with you guys. I am giving away a little Tasty Yummies / Hero Design Studio package of goodies. These are just a few things where my love of cooking and creating in the kitchen and the happiness it gives me, has crept in and met up with my love of design, illustration and printmaking! I am giving away all of the items you see below. All are designed and hand silkscreen printed by myself and my husband, Mark.
And thank you again, from the bottom of my heart to all of you that take time out of your very busy lives to read this blog, to try my recipes, to comment, to share my site with others, etc. It truly means the world to me. Namaste.
