Fame and other food

I started this blog a little over two months ago to quench a thirst I had to write about food. As someone who loves trying new recipes and recently had to buy a new bookcase to house her ever-out-of-control cookbook collection, I figured I had a lot to say on the matter. To me, food + writing = bliss.

Now, instead of it just being a searchable online collection of recipes and my thoughts about them, with a little vintage kick, it has somehow turned into a site that has been viewed almost 3000 times. By you guys. And I am not only mystified, but super-duper-uber excited! Welcome! I know not how you came here or why, but you've been unfathomably supportive and complimentary and it is the most wonderful bonus a quiet kid with a passion for whisking could ask for.

What makes it even more fun is when y'all try out my recipes and suggestions, and tell me how you did. I absolutely love that a piece of Veggie Mama is found in kitchens all over the world!

Over at Our Park Life, a hilariously wonderful mama blog, Nic and Gill have given themselves a little challenge... Nic provides a family-friendly recipe, which Gill attempts to recreate at home. She blogs honestly about the procedure, the end result and the family's feedback. Fun! Triple fun when it features a Veggie Mama corn chowder.... see for yourself!

I can't thank y'all enough, my dear hungry readers, for everything xxx

  2. Yeah for you! I didn't realize you were new to this. I found your blog a few weeks ago when looking for some vegetarian recipes for my family. We're fairly new to the meatless world and I want to make it enticing for the 4-year-old and 1-year-old. Congratulations on 3000! Love from Canada.
