Over two years ago when Maggie asked me if I wanted to start a cooking blog with her, I knew very little of the food blogging world. At that point I was only a reader of a handful of food blogs, but was ecstatic to collaborate with my sister and create one of our own. Sharing a food blog with Maggie has been a terrific experience. I have tried cooking foods that I never would have attempted if it weren't for this website pushing me out of my comfort zone. I also have learned about the benefits of natural light when photographing food, and the importance of a very, very steady hand when focusing a camera.
I started working on this blog when I was still in college, and it was with me as I moved to Philly to work my first teaching job, and back to the Jersey Shore, as I started my second teaching job. Unfortunately for me, this is where my blogging journey will end. As I come to the end of my second year of teaching, I plan to return to the classroom this summer, not as a teacher but as a student. As of May 21, I will be pursuing my Masters Degree in History, and while I will not be completely overwhelmed with teaching and graduate school until September, I have decided to step away from A Bitchin' Kitchen because I will not be able to give much attention to the blog.
I have already told Maggie, that in typical little sister fashion I will make sure to find a way into her posts, and who knows - maybe will guest blog a recipe or two. Thanks for a great experience, and stay tuned for continued greatness from Maggie!!!
