I did it!! A year ago today, I began this little blog as a way to share my recipes and ideas to just friends and anyone who is and was willing to read. I've been blogging way before this one, but it was mostly for my observations and film experience/interests on Misadventures of Little J. I still frequently writing on there every week. Have a look. Then one day in March, I decided on whim to start another blog. And in popped up Bread + Butter. Why the name? Because it's one of my favorite things to eat in the world. It's one of the first things they bring you at restaurants. And I'm sure it's two things that are in every household. The name can go two ways. Bread Plus Butter or Bread and Butter. I like both. It was really just a thing I thought I'd post maybe once or twice a week, if I was lucky. Now look at it. 376 posts later, it's grown into something I couldn't have imagined.
To kick off this little blogiversay I made a little cupcake doodle as seen above. It's chocolate with pink vanilla frosting. Yum. (That's my chocolate fix, since I gave it up for lent.) Or I can just show you a big coffee cake muffin I had while having my morning at a little shop the other day. :) That thing was twice the size of my fist!!!! But it was really delicious.
I need to give a shoutout to a few people. Eric at Eric Rivera's Cooking Blog, Tangled Noodle, doggybloggy at ChezWhat?, Oyster Culture at Oyster Food and Culture. You guys were one of the first commentors here and I can't thank you enough for sticking around. It was almost like a "Julie & Julia" moment, when I had my first comments, except that they weren't from someone directly related to me. For you loyal readers and visitors here, in the most heartfelt way that I can through the interweb, I thank you all for being so awesome. You make this blog enjoyable to do every single day. Even though I haven't been able to reply to the comments as much these days, I do enjoy reading them and I do read all of them. I promise.
So in honor of this 1-year blogiversary, I'm having a giveaway. Ooooooo.... I wanted the prize to be something related to one of my favorite foods of all time. That would be...sushi!!! (Oh, I'm planning on doing a sushi week here on B + B, so keep an eye out.) The winner will receive this cool sushi book called Easy Sushi. It's filled with how-to's on how to make the various sushi rolls. Also to help you get started, I'm including a little sushi kit that has a rice paddle, bamboo rolling mat, and a little instruction booklet. I do love sushi!!
