Cooking with Alison was created three years ago, today! I can not believe how quickly this last year passed by. A lot has happened and I haven’t been able to share as many recipes as I would have liked to. But I’m hoping to get back into posting regularly, soon.
Before I give you an update on my life and the statistics on the food blog, I’d like to thank everyone who’s continued to support my food blog. I am truly grateful for every hit, every comment, and every link shared. All the best to you in 2013!
I’ve been back in Toronto, ON for a year now, but I don’t have a kitchen of my own, yet. The other thing that keeps me from my much missed cooking marathons is my new job, which is quite a bit more demanding than my last one. And apparently, it’s true – if you don’t use it, you lose it (when it comes to cooking and baking skills, that is ). Those of you who have been following my blog for a while have probably heard the name, Ed, from my older posts. In 2012, we amicably went our separate ways. The funny thing is, my new beau, John, doesn’t really like my cooking. He is happily accepting cooking lessons from me, but he thinks my food is too bland and too healthy. Finally, I am very sad to share that my beloved dog, Blue, passed away on February 22, 2012. I miss the way he’d watch me from just outside the kitchen, the way he’d sniff the air, and the way he’d lick his lips when he saw me eating something. I miss tossing food for him to catch, I miss leaving treats for him to find, and I miss feeling the fur around his lips brush my lips when he’d take food dangling from my mouth. I miss everything about him. Aside from that, life is treating me very well and I wish the same for all of you.
