Four years ago, I started Once Upon a Chef as a way to return to the culinary world after leaving the restaurant business to start a family. I still remember the excitement of seeing my first few subscriptions roll in, even if they were my own relatives! Today, thanks to you all sharing my site with your friends and families, my subscriber list has grown to almost 25,000 readers. I am so grateful for your continued support!
I’m also grateful for your steady feedback over the years. Your emails always brighten my day, and your suggestions on how I can improve the site are greatly appreciated. To that end, I’d like to take this opportunity to fill you in on a few changes I’m making to Once Upon a Chef that I hope you’ll enjoy.
First, I’m getting ready to launch a new newsletter. Each week, I’ll continue to provide a new featured recipe but will also add complete menus to make weekly meal planning easier for you. In addition, I’ll include seasonal recipe round-ups, cooking tips, awesome giveaways and more. The first edition should arrive in your inbox later this week!
(FACEBOOK FANS: you can subscribe to receive the newsletter here)
I will also be introducing cooking videos. This is a big step for me personally because up until recently, the thought of “lights, camera, action” was about as appealing as jumping out of airplanes! But I did it, and it was actually fun. If you’d like a sneak peek, check out the link below to see a video of my Black Bean Salad with Corn, Red Peppers, Avocado with Lime Cilantro Vinaigrette. This is my most popular recipe by a mile — it has been pinned over 700,000 times on Pinterest!
As I roll out these new additions to Once Upon a Chef, I want to hear from you! Please keep in touch and let me know how you enjoy the recipes and changes.
As always, thank you for allowing me into your inboxes and kitchens, and especially for sharing my recipes with your friends and families!
All My Best,
