Today is Well Plated’s 10-year blogging anniversary! To celebrate 10 years, I give up Ten $100 VISA Gift Cards!

Whoa whoa whoa.

I would never have reached this milestone without you.

In May 2012, I started this little corner on the internet to let my family know about our adventures in our new city and occasionally share what I’m cooking to live on a grad school budget in a 55 square foot apartment Survive.

If you told me then:

  • I would give up my full-time consulting job and pursue blogging as a career.
  • My website will contain over 1,300 recipes used by millions of home cooks around the world.
  • I will write a Best Selling Recipes.
  • My husband will leave law and work with me full time.
  • I will have my dream job…

A generation perhaps Will definitely look at you like you have two heads and a tail.

In the beginning, I was blogging about stealing donuts in an empty conference room at work and taking photos of recipes with my flip phone!

For posterity, here is a photo I took in my old Madison apartment, circa 2013.You can tell I’m getting serious because I’m using a real camera and a poster board to try and bounce the light.
