I can’t believe one year ago I hit publish on my keyboard embarking into a world that I was unfamiliar with. I was ready and determined to create something that I could look back on and say I did it.
And one year later, I did.
Today marks the one year anniversary of Mother Thyme. How quickly a year has flown by.
It’s been a year filled with recipes such as Lemon Sugar Cookies, Slow Cooker Pork Ragu, Peach Muffins, Corn Salad just to name a mere few that have filled the recipe box.
|Banana Zucchini Muffins, Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry, Nutella Brownies and Blueberry Cake have been some reader favorites!|
Every recipe I have shared comes from the heart along with the stories behind each one. I have found a creative outlet that I just love.
I have learned this year to stay true to yourself. I can’t express that enough. I am who I am and I would never want to copy or mimic someone else. Creating my own style makes me unique.
I could eat, breath and sleep food photography. I can’t get enough of it. I am often found pinning and gawking over pictures of food. It is a serious addiction.
I would love to learn how to tweet, like for real. Yes, I do it, but sometimes I am just crossing my fingers making sure I am doing it right. I think a Twitter 101 class should be on the to do list.
What I truly believe the most in my work is quality over quantity. I once read early on when I began to stick to quality content over worrying how many likes, hits, comments etc… you get. That has stuck with me. I don’t and I can’t wrap myself up in numbers. I don’t do this for that purpose. I do this because I have a passion for cooking, a joy of photographing food and a love for sharing my thoughts with you.

I am so thankful for you, my readers, and foodie friends that I have made this year. I am truly touched by your support, your comments, your emails. Nothing means more to me than seeing emails and comments from all of you letting me know you tried a recipe. I create these recipes for all to enjoy. I’ll never forget the first time I received a comment from someone who made recipe of mine and how much they loved it. To know my recipe I put my heart into was in others kitchens means the world to me.
