One Year of Two Hungry Boys

It’s hard to believe, but we’ve been running this blog for a whole year now. It all began with some of Nigella Lawson’s Korean keema and today we’ve post two Nigella recipes – Italian roast chicken and her apple and walnut cake. It was Nigella’s books which first really got us into cooking in a serious way, and she remains a firm favourite. A clear highlight of the last 12 months was meeting her at a book signing!

We’ve also cooked an awful lot of Nigel Slater recipes – he’s a cook we’ve truly grown to love. I wasn’t really familiar with him before, but we’ve found his recipes to be consistently reliable and, despite their simple ingredients, incredibly tasty.

Over the past 12 months we’ve clocked up 284 followers on Instagram, 132 on Twitter, plus a few on Tumblr and Facebook and our website is getting a few hundred views a month. Our forays into YouTube have not gotten very far, but maybe we’ll give it another go sometime.

Thank you for visiting our site, and hopefully you’ve seen something you like… here’s to the next 12 months!
