Readers, I'm sorry to have left you here alone for so long. I didn't intend to post only twice last week (I was home and more than capable of more regular posts), but before I knew it, it was Friday and I was vacant from this space more than I wanted to be. The reason? I was having so much fun working on my new blog !
I've mentioned this new blog a few times around here, over the past two months and it's finally ready...ready to be read, by you, I'm hoping. Here's the thing...I started this blog as a way to share my recipes and promote a cooking-with-kids school I was putting together. For reasons far too many to list here, the cooking classes never really came to fruition, and I continued posting on all the recipes I make for and with my children. I have really enjoyed this, but felt there was so many more food/family things I could talk about too. I've wanted to grow and expand this blog but found it challenging as this blog has a specific focus, and certain topics didn't fit into what I was writing about here.
A few times over the past month or so I have posted random topics, in lieu of recipes ("how do you organize your recipes?" for example) and your response has been surprisingly enthusiastic - which makes me think that you have "foodie" things to talk about too. Right? So, that will be the focus of the new blog. A place to write about food and family and how the two come together. I'm really excited about this venture and I do hope you'll come along for the ride. Mixing Bowl Kids will remain here, as my recipe journal. I have a place on my new blog that will direct you here and you can still access all of the recipes. Occasionally, I will post here as well and will let you know via the new blog when that it is. I'm not sure how long I'll manage the two blogs (I work, have kids and am going to school one night a week as well, so time is not really in abundance around here) but I'll do my best and keep you updated.
So, please come and visit me in my new space - and let me know what you think! I hope to update the blog more than once a day, with bits and bobs of fun information, and if you choose to subscribe to the blog (there's a link under my email address) you'll receive updates via email each time I post something new.
See you soon!
