Hey there! Just for fun today I’m getting a little personal.
I started my website, 365DaysOfCrockpot.com, 10 years ago this month and I know most all of you have not followed along with my journey the whole time. Maybe none of you. Except my family members. And probably not even them–lol.
So for those of you who are new or not so new I’d like to give you a little background on me. As Toby Keith said, “I wanna talk about me!” Just for today, anyway.
I grew up in a family where there were 7 girls and NO boys! My dad handled that like a champ!! I was raised in Montana and attended BYU for college where I studied Community Health.
I met my husband at college, and after 6 weeks of dating we were engaged. Crazy, I know! But we are still together and will celebrate 19 years of marriage this year! We have a 13-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy.
10 years ago, I made the decision to cook in my slow cooker every day for a year and ended up starting a blog with all the recipes I cooked. Some were bad, and some were good. I got some local media attention which led to exposure and a book deal! I have had 3 books published.
A couple of years ago I decided to focus on Instant Pot recipes in addition to slow cooker recipes. I love my Instant Pot!
10 years later I have hundreds of thousands (sometimes millions) of people coming to my site each month. I owe this success to YOU my loyal readers.
I am pleased to announce I am working on a new Instant Pot book! Hooray, I will keep you in the loop, and let you know when it comes out. If you’d like to be added to an email list to give you updates on the book sign up here!
