This time last year, I sat with my laptop; editing, tweaking, hesitating and finally hitting ‘publish’on the first post on spatulainmypocket.com. *dundundun*
With that one click, I gave permission to everyone in the world to read what I had written and see what I had made. That’s the day Spatula in My Pocket was truly born. It started as a hobby and in the space of an year, has become a part of my identity. A part that I am immensely proud of. So, in this post I am going to indulge myself and talk about my magnificent journey so far (lots more to come, InshaaAllah!)
There is special surprise at the end for you, so start scrolling!
Spatula in My Pocket has opened new worlds to me, found me new friends, a sense of purpose, and above all, it has given me confidence to overcome the crushing fear of failure and TO TRY.
The year has passed by so quickly.
From interviews, shoutouts, being mentioned in Buzzfeed, Parade Magazine, winning the Foona best blogger competition and baking bazillion cakes. This year has been a roll coaster ride.
Some of my favorite posts from this year have been:
An all-time family favorite, Chicken Karhai
S’mores. Brownies. PIE. >>> S’mores Brownie Pie
First post, the rich gooey molten lava cake
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, also involving a mention of my first ever attempt at a Wedding Cake
First Bake Stall!! Sigh. Memories.
This to.die.for Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart
The ultimate comfort food…Fettuccine Carbonara
My brother’s birthday cake: strawberries and cream cake
Also can we just admire these pictures?
I threw myself a little blogiversary party.
Just some mini cupcakes, normal cupcakes, donuts, and a giant pink ombre cake topped with MORE DONUTS. ^.^
Lastly, thank you all so much for your continued support and love!
I appreciate everyone who visits this humble website even when weeks go by without any new posts (guilty as charged).
Spatula in My Pocket is for you guys.
I hope and pray with all my brownie-loving heart that the next year and the years to come bring endless prosperity and joy and rainbows and sprinkles to the domains of Spatula in My Pocket. I vow to be a better blogress and update more exciting recipes and answer all queries diligently!
