Happy Blogaversary to me. Today is the 10 year anniversary of my blog. It’s been quite a learning experience from the first blogs to today.

I  started Eat, Bake, and Travel because I wanted to write about my adventures with food and travel. That’s the main reason I wanted to blog. Over the years I’ve blogged about my trip to Troy, NY were we discovered Brown’s Brewery and a great apple dumpling, Merrakesh, Normandy, Paris and let’s not forget the posts about  food. I have written about baking in my kitchen, then i wrote about the renovation of our kitchen after 15 of the worst kitchen ever. I’ve eaten some fantastic food around the globe, from the fried sardines and oysters in Vigo, Spain, all the great food in New Orleans, to the fabulous Japanese cuisine aboard Royal Caribbean sailing the seas. I blogged about my grandmother’s lemon cheesecake cake recipe after i tracked down the recipe from my aunt and from Argo cornstarch. During our travels there were markets to explore in Vietnam, street food in Bangkok and the Hawker markets in Singapore, and the haggis and whisky in Scotland. We sipped bourbons in KY, toured wineries in VA, and  discovered microbreweries along the Shenandoah Valley Beer Trail. I still have so much to write about my past travels and my most recent  baking experiences. I did a lot of baking in the early weeks of COVID 19. I challenged my baking skills and learned how to make pastéis de nata and canelés de Bordeaux.

Most of all, I’ve learned a lot. I’ve attended food blogging conferences all over the US. I am constantly learning.  Learning how to edit bad photos and most of all trying not to take bad photos to begin with. I learned to write longer posts and using social media to promote the posts. It’s been fun to blog off and on for all these years. Not sure what the futures holds for what or when I will be traveling again, what I will be eating or creating in the kitchen, but I hope you will still follow.
