I’m a recent newcomer and was hoping to find your first postings, or perhaps your original blog? I would love to see how this all started. I loved reading your wedding cake saga. Do you have a live link to your original blog and/or to your first intro/hello post?
WOW. I just made it through the last four years. I believe, DEB, it is about time for you to have either a) your own cookbook or b) your own cooking show. You are an inspiration and I love the beautiful photography!
Amazing. I have been looking for that one website to inspire me to cook every day for my man, my love, and, well, here it is. Thank you so much Deb for getting out there and sharing your beautiful gift of cooking and photography. We have similar taste, which is probably why I bookmarked a good portion of your recipes :) I hope you’re able to bring this amazing collection together someday soon and make a cookbook!!
Well, I’ve just taken a lovely trip through your entire archive, and I’d like to say I am now culinarily (yes, that’s now a word) ready to face the world. Okay, that might be a BIT of an exaggeration, but really, it was pretty darn inspiring. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas and recipes, and keep it up!
Like many others I just read through your entire archive and ended up here, in the very beginning. I must admit that I have tears in my eyes! I’m so touched by how positively you and your wonderful recipes and pictures have influenced me in the past couple of months! I’m in a transition moment in my life and I see that discovering the joy and reward of baking/cooking has added a lot more colors to my life! Obviously I’m a fan of yours and I already bought your cookbook on pre order! I’d love to see you on TV or meet you someday. Thank you, my kitchen guru! <3 :-) Like I have said so many times, you are amazing!
It’s 2013 and I also just recently found your blog. I had to find the beggining and come to find out your fist post here was in 2006. That is amazing! I love it. Keep cooking because You are a inspiration. I can’t wait to get your cook book.
Mariam — Yes, it was just a test post for formatting but then people commented so I left it up! Previously, I blogged at thesmitten.com but about dating and other dull stuff, only sometimes talking about food.
