Seven years is a long time. I have a niece who was born just a few days before I started this blog, so I can always track what a person can become in the time this blog has been running. My niece is an adorable little girl, about to start second grade. She’s an avid reader and loves to bake – without her mother’s help. Like I said, seven years is a really long time.
When I started this blog, Instagram was in its infancy stages and nobody I knew had an account yet. Pinterest was so new, it was an invitation only site! (I remember when I was able to get an invitation – it was so exciting!) Twitter was my social network of choice, and I met and connected with great people there. I didn’t even have a facebook account back in August of 2011. I joined a few months later, when someone told me that people in groups were discussing my recipes and I should check it out.
In the seven years since then, I’ve gotten older and (occasionally) wiser. I’ve written two cookbooks, and I’ve photographed a total of four. I’ve had a number of professional accomplishments that came as a direct result of the little hobby I started seven years ago (traveling around the world giving cooking demos, selling out of my second cookbook in just ten days, taking photos that appeared in newspapers and on packaging across the world, and so much more). But the thing I’m always most grateful for, is how I’ve gotten to meet and connect with so many of you. Whether we’ve met in person or only online, it’s always a privilege to talk to so many fans and followers around the world, to share my food and recipes, to answer questions and plan menus for you.
And through it all, I’ve really learned so much. I’ve learned what the busy mom looks for in a dinner recipe. I’ve learned how people like to plan their shabbos and holiday menus. I’ve learned what extra steps people deem worth it, and which they aren’t willing to do. And so, in honor of seven years worth of questions, comments and discussions with my amazing readers, I’ve decided to take my first post ever, these Peanut Butter Truffle Stuffed Oreos, and turn them into an incredible new dessert that (based on seven years of feedback!) I am 100% confident you guys will make and love: Peanut Butter Truffle Pie.
Thanks, as always, for reading my blog. I’m nothing without you, and I try hard to never forget that!
