Happy 1st Blogiversary!

I can’t believe that it has been a year since my very first post. Never thought it will last this long. Because I’ve made several blog before too, and none of them survive more than 1 month. Lost my writing mood very quick and never came back then I had to delete the blog 😛

My husband was one of the reason I started blogging again. He was so busy with his blog and got lots of comments and likes and that made me kind of jealous because I wrote my recipes in Indonesian in my previous deleted blogs and kind of messy. So I decided to write a blog in English, even though my English is rusty (it’s not my first language :P).

So many things happened just in a year. I never expected to get so many readers but I’m really thankful for that. Big big thanks to you all. Although my intentions when I made this blog was just for my personal recipes bank but I’m happy if you have tried some of my recipes and it worked and you liked the result 🙂

In this post, I’m putting my favourite foods and sweets, some of them are old recipes and the pictures might not as good (hey, my husband also still learning about food photography because of my blog :D).
