Just over seven years ago, I decided to take the plunge and start a food blog. The first recipe I posted was for this Really Great Sirloin Steak Marinade (still one of my very favorites). There was no text, just the recipe and a somewhat dingy, out-of-focus photo, thanks to an old model cell phone camera and incandescent lighting. /shudder
Now, 200 posts later, I have hopefully evolved into a more competent photographer and writer of words. While not a prolific poster, my heart and soul still belong in the kitchen and in my garden <3, and I love sharing it all with you.
In addition to hitting the 200th post milestone, last week I also crossed over the 700 likes threshold on my Facebook Dinner Is Served page . I do believe this is cause for a celebration!
If you’re wondering what honey has to do with this post, well it has EVERYTHING to do because to celebrate these milestones, I’m giving away one jar of our beautiful, golden fall honey! Just leave a comment below or on my Facebook page and tell me your favorite way to enjoy honey and I will pick one winner at random.
I haven’t had the opportunity to talk at great lengths about our beekeeping hobby. Honestly I have enough information and photos to start an entirely separate blog. But the short and sweet (haha get it?) version is: YES, this is our second year beekeeping! WE have two hives in our back yard that produce about 100# of honey (that does not include the honey produced by the bees to get them through the winter).
The honey is, in our humble opinion, amazing and makes all the effort worth while. We enjoy it daily on toast, in tea or drizzled over yogurt. Also works great in salad dressings and marinades (like this one for Honey, Lemon and Thyme Grilled Pork Tenderloin.
Again, THANK YOU for your likes and support. Here’s to many more years of cooking and sharing recipes ❤
Until next time, be well, eat well, love lots!
