This is exactly what it looks like before I start to cook and write a post.


Everything is all over the small kitchen counter and living room table, while trying to sort out what the next recipe will be and what kind of post to write. While I was baking the Marble Cake yesterday, I realised that March 3rd, was the day I started my blog..ONE WHOLE YEAR HAS PAST!!…. WOW!!!!

If I remember correctly it was February 27th, 2017 that I had gone to the last interview for a job opening.  I didn’t get the job and was very upset and frustrated, so the following day I took Charlie for the longest walk all day actually, thinking, trying to come up with ideas of what I can do.  As I was walking home after a truly exhausting day mentally and physically I came up with the idea to start this cooking blog..I knew this would be good for me in so many ways. 🙂  I spoke to my husband about it and he encouraged me to go ahead and do it, and so I did, and very happy to be celebrating my

                                                         ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!!!! 

I am going to keep this short and sweet, I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your support, your likes, your warm and kind comments, your funny comments, (some literally had me on the floor,  you know who you are)  your emails, your friendship. 🙂 What more can I say than just THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I am truly grateful and very happy to be here amongst all of you…I am so happy that I decided to start this blog, because I have made so many friends from all over the world. I have learned about their country, cultures, their food, their drinks, their lives. 🙂 

Thank you for letting me a part of your lives and Thank you for being a part of mine.  🙂
