I started this blog back in May of 2009. Since then, I’ve written almost 700 posts. And a book.
Since I have learned so much and changed so much in the past 5 years, it’s only natural that the look and feel of my blog evolves, as well. So I hired my talented friend Sabrina to give HGK a little makeover as a “blogiversary” gift to myself. I wanted the design to be very simple, natural, and a little messy, even (kind of like me!). I hope you like it as much as I do :)
(Please if you notice any problems with the new design, let me know! That way, we can fix whatever is wrong.)
And what’s a celebration without a decadent treat? I made a Chocolate Silk Pie to mark this blogging milestone.
My parents used to serve a similar French Silk Pie in their restaurant when I was a kid…I have such fond memories of that pie and have been wanting to make one like it for a long time. This pie is so easy to prepare and it’s absolutely delicious: I think it perfectly symbolizes where my blog and I are at these days and what you can expect to see here in the future.
