Join me for a trip down memory lane over the last 3 years.
It’s hard to believe, but last Thursday was the three year mark for Simply Southern Baking. That was fast! Where did the time go? Do you feel like that sometimes? All of a sudden, it’s a year or two or five down the road! Since I didn’t do anything special to celebrate on the actual day, I decided to take a trip down memory lane over the last three years by putting together these collages. Pictured above are some of the recipes I’ve created that are on the blog.
Conference fun, food and friends. It’s always fun to catch up with old friends and meet new ones at conferences. I look forward to the next one!
I’ve had fun joining in with local food bloggers for bake sales to benefit Share our Strength’s No Kid Hungry program. A side benefit to this is bringing treats home from the other bloggers. Yum!
It’s been exciting to have my recipes featured on numerous web sites and in Southern Living magazine. This year, my Orange Creamsicle Rice Krispies Treats were included online in a cake mix roundup at Cosmopolitan, Country Living, Redbook and House Beautiful. Just last month, my Coconut Cookie Butter Sandwich Cookies were included in a collection of no-bake cookie recipes on Parade and featured as the main picture.
Adventures and travels over the last 3 years – mountains, waterfalls, apple festival, covered bridges, bluegrass, gingerbread competition and a trip to Yoder’s Amish Restaurant Village. Fun times!
I love meeting my online virtual friends in person. Earlier this year, I got to meet Christy Jordan from Southern Plate at a local book signing and took photos of the event. She’s just a doll! Meeting Francine Bryson from The American Baking Competition and her Team Redneck friends at the Great American Pie Festival was a blast! We had so much fun. I can’t wait for Francine’s cookbook to come out next month.
Along the way, I took time to breathe by enjoying sunrises and sunsets in the mountains and at the ocean.
Thank you for joining me on this journey. What’s your favorite recipe or post I’ve shared over the last three years? I’d love to hear from you.
