When I started my food blog I had no idea that within such a short period of time that I would have so many readers who share the same passion for food as I do. This blog started so I would have somewhere for my recipes to be in one spot, instead of on loose pieces of paper and exercise books around the house! I am so glad to be sharing with each and everyone of you. I wouldn’t be here today without you.
This year, Miss Food Fairy will continue to trial new recipes, from not only what’s inside my head but also from my many cookbooks or other amazing recipes found all over the world via the internet. I’m looking forward to hearing a lot more feedback and interaction from you. The inspiration I find from every available source keeps me wanting to become a better home cook for not only my husband, family and friends but for you to see the growth in me too.
I wanted to start the new year off with a recap of the year that was 2013. Whether you’ve been with me from the beginning or you’ve recently joined my food venture, there’s always inspiration to be found from re-reading posts. The one thing I do know is that new photos will have to be taken soon – but it shows the growth I’ve made from day one and they’re inspiration for me to strive better.
Lets begin with my favourite cuisine – hope you enjoyed them too!
