Happy 12 year anniversary to 365 Days of Slow and Pressure Cooking! It’s been a fun journey and I am so happy to share it with you. Thank you so much for following along for the past week or past 12 years. However long you’ve been here I am grateful you have chosen to visit this website and that you are part of the 365 Days family!
When I first started blogging in 2009 my only goal was to cook 365 days a row in my crockpot. I had a 3 year old and a 6 month old at the time and was a stay at home mom that needed a hobby for herself. I thought the 365 days challenge would be fun and perhaps I could put the recipes into a cookbook at the end of the year. I learned a lot about sticking with something even when you want to quit. At the end of the year I was proud of myself but didn’t really want to keep going with the blog. I was burnt out.
Luckily I did keep blogging, although not every day. I shared my favorite creations from my slow cooker. And I was blessed with the opportunity to publish my first cookbook, 365 Days of Slow Cooking*.
In 2017 I was introduced to the Instant Pot and started sharing recipes. 365 Days accelerated at a rate that I hadn’t ever imagined could be possible! The blog grew and allowed Greg and I to pay off our house. It was an amazing blessing that I thank God for everyday.
I love creating and sharing recipes with you and hope that you find value here. I hope Greg and I will keep doing what we are doing for many more years to come. It truly is my dream job.
To celebrate the past 12 years I thought I would share some of the “most populars” with you. Did any of your favorites make the list?
