My Recipes published at DELICOOKS, and 4 delicious recipes for you to celebrate 3 Years of Blogging!
That's how it all started 3 years ago. My husband convinced me that starting a blog could be a positive experience… and here I am, 3 years after… when I look back I see how this blog has helped me to grow as a person, as a cook and as an amateur photographer. It's been my therapy and my hobbie; yeah, there's been ups and downs, blogging fever and blogging fobia; but I'm still here and the experience has been highly positive and enriching. Thank you all ♥ for being there and making it possible.
