Eight months, 100 posts, new connections, inspirations, and a whole slew of amazing discoveries. I started this blog as a way to document my favourite recipes, and explore my interest in photography. I didn’t really imagine anyone more than my close family and friends would read, but here we are, a lovely, supportive, interactive community! Even more, I became a much better cook and more creative in the kitchen since starting Silk and Spice, and that is thanks to the many amazing bloggers I follow who inspire me every day.
Today, I am writing my 100th post, and to many that might not be much of a milestone, but I am quite proud of having written 100 posts since I started Silk and Spice back in March. The best part is I get to have fun creating on this blog, and all of you are so supportive and interactive. I love hearing stories about recipes you made from Silk and Spice, and even more, when friends make my recipes for their omnivore loved ones and they are a hit. We’re on a food revolution, I tell ya….
Over the last few weeks, many of you were so thoughtful in nominating me for great awards. Bea from Body Energy Action and Johanna from Whole and Happy Food nominated me for the Sunshine Award. Thank you! Poppy from Poppy’s Patisserie nominated me for the Blog of The Year Award and The Dragon’s Loyalty Award. Thank you! Ajaytao nominated me for a collection of lovely awards. Thank you! Marianne from The Oven Diaries nominated me for the Versatile Bloggers Award. Thank you! I am extremely grateful, and in return I am hosting a Holiday Giveaway that is open to you all!
I thought about what to give away, and decided I wanted it to be something that would be a great resource for any one who is vegan, vegetarian, or dancing with the idea of going veg. I am giving away a copy of VEGANOMICON! This really is the ultimate vegan cookbook. Everyday meals which are so simple and don’t use weird, unfamiliar ingredients. I found that when I started cooking from this book, it made me very comfortable with plant-based cooking, and I didn’t really need to go back to it for exact recipes. It gave me useful, everyday meal ideas which I could whip up quickly. And, Isa Chandra is my plant-based heroine, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
