What’s that? You thought I’d given up on my blog?
It’s ok, I thought I had too but to be honest I’ve missed it so much that, well . . . here I am!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year with friends and family.
I know I did.
So what was on your dinner table over the festive season? Lots of fresh local produce I hope because as we all know, you just can’t beat it for flavour.
You may notice that there are a few changes around here. First of all, the name of my blog has changed. It’s now called All You Can Eat and has a new address at www.allyoucaneatblog.com
The decision to re-brand was made after a lot of soul searching over the last few months.
While the philosophy behind Grow it, Catch it, Make it has not changed, I’ve expanded the concept slightly.
Don’t worry, All You Can Eat isn’t a food blog about my favourite $10.95 smorgasbord at the local club. I won’t do that to you, I promise!
It’s about everything edible and inspiring from my local area and beyond.
Whether it’s backyard veges or boutique producers, home cooks or world-class restaurants; if it’s food and I think you’ll enjoy it, I want to share it with you.
For more details checkout my About page here.
I’ll also be posting on a regular basis from now on (once a week) in an attempt to make the big plans I have for this humble little blog come true.
Now for a bit of fun stuff!
One of the really neat things about having a blog is checking out its viewer statistics.
That’s right. Every time someone reads a post, makes a comment, or likes something; I know about it.
And it’s fascinating getting an insight into what you, the reader, finds interesting.
So I wanted to share a few of my statistics from last year with you!
Here are the Top 5 posts from 2015
- Pecan Nuts – a story about a lovely old bloke and his pecan orchard at Innot Hot Springs
- Doggie Mackerel – a tale about teaching my son a family tradition
- Homemade Basil Pesto – how to make this delicious Italian herb paste
- Fiery Freebies – how to make the most of bird’s-eye chillies
- Foray into fungi – check out these monster mushrooms I brought to the dinner table
You may also find it interesting to see what countries the majority of my readers come from.
Here are my Top 5 countries
- Australia – No surprises there!
- United States – I believe you guys will knock the home team out of top spot before long!
- United Kingdom – Glad to have you on board! Hope my tropical recipes brighten a few winter’s days for you.
- Canada – Thanks for watching this space from so far away!
- Philippines – When it comes to tropical cuisine, you guys have nailed it! I hope to learn from you and I’m headed your way very soon
Amazing stuff, and I want to extend a big thank you to all my readers from all over the world for taking an interest in what I’m doing here.
I promise you, 2016 is going to be a huge year at All You Can Eat.
