What an exciting day this is going to be for everyone! This is my relaunch of TJOTJOC! Just what you've all been waiting for!
So, here's the rundown.
Schedule from now on: I'm going to post at least a post a week. It's very possible I'm going to write these all at once but I'm going to schedule them so they come out periodically.
Why the break? I have had a lot of personal issues but on top of that, I just lost my passion for blogging. I still was cooking but I managed to get so spectacularly behind I couldn't even imagine how I would ever catch up. And that bogged me down. And then I just gave up. I had an entire Thanksgiving's worth of recipes on a phone that was stolen. I was downtrodden.
So what changed? My cousin, Erica, made the point that I could do whatever I want to catch up because it's my blog. I can just summarize the recipes, I can post them in detail, I can cook them again. I can do whatever I want because this blog is totally mine. And that was empowering! So I'm just going to start blogging about what I'm cooking and do exactly that to catch up--write up some old posts, summarize other, and just totally recook a few.
AND WHAT'S NEW? Much like some of you, I've fallen in love with subscription boxes. I actually switched out my bar budget for a subscription box budget (much healthier in the long run!). I'm going to post about them. If you like this, great! If you hate it, skip them! Simple. The first week is going to be subscription box heavy but don't worry--the food will come back and be about 75% of the posts.
What else is new? I've updated all the pages up top! Make sure to comment and let me know what you think of the changes. I'm excited and I hope you are too.
I love you all! Thank you for sticking with me through the years!
