Tummy Treasure was created in 2005 as an attempt to connect with family. My younger sisters were in college and used their blogs as a way to let their family know what was going on with them. It was a brilliant idea! With family all over the country, I thought a blog was the ideal way to keep family up to date on what’s going on with us.
Little did I know what would happen shortly after I started! I was using my blog to post pictures of the kids, as well as the occasional recipe, but I had no idea there were blogs out there devoted to food! My discovery of all of these food blogs was a revelation, and I instantly knew what I wanted to do with my blog. I’ve been food-blogging ever since! I am still able to keep my family informed while blogging about one of my real passions- cooking.
In the fall of 2007, my blogging also led to an occasional feature in my local newspaper, first, the Seymour area Times Press; and now I create recipes for the Advertiser Community News- where I am able to share my love of cooking with my neighbors and community. That’s been a whole new adventure, as I have discovered that creating entirely new recipes is much easier said than done. I have enjoyed every minute of it though, and it’s also led to more of an awareness in eating locally. For more about me and my family, check out my homepage at tummytreasure.com.
