New Year, New Start (again!)

So – it turns out I’m not so hot on the remembering to blog every week – and since I’ve missed the last 60 odd weeks it seems like I’ll never catch up! But it is a new year and I’ve always enjoyed writing about my kitchen tales so I have decided to start again but with a few subtle changes because, change is good!

I’ve decided not to strictly adhere to cooking a new recipe a week, in a strange way it seemed to add pressure – having to come up with something new every week. There will still be recipes I’ve never tried before but I’ll also include some of our old favourites – just to mix things up a bit. Also it helps me feel like less of a failure when I get to the end of this year when I haven’t cooked 52 new recipes.

I thought I might also blog about interesting food places Mr Gem and I discover when we are out and about – not in the form of a restaurant review – I’m no Jay Rayner, but if we eat something awesome I’ll share a photo and a recommendation.

Also I may slip in a few small posts about our upcoming wedding – Mr Gem proposed last Christmas and now W Day is fast approaching. Excitingly we have all of the exciting food tasting and choosing bits still to do. Unsurprisingly food was a big part of the decision making process in booking the venue.

So I’ll sign off by wishing you all a happy new year. It’s going to be an exciting 2015 at Kitchen Gems HQ and I can’t wait to share it!
