Thank You Ree!

January 25, 2010

Although I’ve been cooking forever, I’m a relative newbie to the world of food blogging. I started doing this just for fun, as a way to collect my usual recipes in a format other than inside my head. Since I began back in May, I’ve  had to expand my repertoire or else y’all would be seeing lots of linguine, olive oil, garlic and tomatoes.  Wait,  you already see a lot of those ingredients, don’t you?  Anyway,  I’m still just doing it as a little project on the side, a way to combine my love of food and my love for my camera.

Imagine my surprise when I realized that the fabulous, amazingly talented Queen of The Blogosphere, Pioneer Woman, listed me on her Fantastic Food Sites page!   I’m just a little awestruck to be listed among some of the biggest names and faces in the food blog world. I’m not sure how I got to be included but I’m more than honored.

So a big welcome to all you Pioneer Woman fans.  I can’t hold a candle to Ree but I hope you enjoy my blog anyway.  I’ll try not to disappoint!

Karen! I found your blog through Ree’s blogroll last week, subscribed on Google Reader, and have bookmarked at least 15 recipes from your site! Just wanted to let you know that your recipes and photos are wonderful. Love, Joolsey

Your blog is truly awesome, its simple and easy to navigate and yet its very visually beautiful.
Your photography is wonderful, I love the step by step pics.
I look at many food blogs out there for years now and yet when I found yours this year, you became one of my few favorite blogs. Thank you for sharing your food.

Karen,
I found your blog through PW’s list yesterday. Your recipes all looked so tempting, I stayed on the site for what seemed like hours last night getting ideas! I’m a “newbie” to the food blogging too {and to cooking/domesticity in general} & love the little community that is out there for us! I’m looking forward to following you!

I would be one of those Ree followers. I guess you’ve probably noticed a spike in traffic. I love your look here and feel @ home. One reason is because I just did a huge kitchen romodel and I have a Publix right down the street so the images of all the Publix brands is surprisingly comforting. I’ve shopped @ that Publix for 14yrs. Keep up the good work. wishing you much success in 2010.
