Today marks a special day for me:
Exactly 2 years ago I embarked on this blog.
I had a few reasons for creating Sockmonkey’s Kitchen:
- Creating a simple cooking resource for friends and family
- Teaching myself to write weekly
- Making and running a website
- Keeping my original recipes in one place
- Learning accountability (once a week is tough!)
- Designing my own logo/branding
- Pushing myself to create new dishes
- Sharing my love of food
My original goal was to keep my blog going for an entire year, or 52 weeks. Well, since today marks 2 years, I guess I’m an overachiever 😉
My life has changed so very much, and for the better! I’m now finding myself beginning a new life as a wife, mom of 2 more, in a new home, and pursuing more activities and creative outlets all around. I’m still madly in love with food, from the growing, to the shopping, to the prepping, and to the eating. I’m still researching articles and learning all the way through it.
However, for a few months, I’ll need to put this blog on the back burner. I own this site, so I’ll keep it open for you to use as a cookbook, resource, or place to look at my silly sense of humor. Remember, there are over 100 posts here, so make sure to use the search bar to look for ingredients, dinner ideas, or….?
This has been a wonderfully fun ride, and I’ll be coming back soon, once all the cardboard boxes from my move are gone, and I’ve settled in to life.
But until then, please feel free to comment on the posts, and if any of you have a cooking/food/fun blog, please also feel free to post a link to it 🙂
Now go grab a cookie, and a cup of coffee, and remember my recipes whenever you spot a sockmonkey. ❤
Hugs to all of you

I am so proud to see that you kept up a post a week for the last you years. My question is if the monkey is real or another bni imposter? lol
I am going to miss your blog so much, as I’m sure everyone will! I don’t suppose you would consider doing a quarterly blog for now? Of course I do understand that you had to prioritize!
Thanks Barbara =0) Yes, I certainly would consider *something*…. you never know! Just stay subscribed, and I’ll see what I can do.
Hugs back!!!! Thanks for leaving the blog open so we can access your recipes!! 🙂
Of course! I check back with them for ideas quite often when I’m at the grocery store 😉
VERY proud of you girl! Thank you for sharing your love of everything food, I have learned a lot and will continue to use your recipes!
Remember, Keep Calm and have your happily ever after!
Aw, thanks Diane! I hope you’ll like what I’ll be doing now – I think I’ll start reposting my old recipes so perhaps you’ll get some *new to you* ideas =0)
Totally understand, but you will be missed here Joani!!! xoxox
Thanks Cyndie! Who knows how long I’ll be able to stay away…. heh heh
maybe you’ll find some time now and then to come back and give us something new ;o)
I would appreciate that.
You will be missed!
Thank you so much Sandra! I have a feeling this isn’t the last of the sockmonkey….=0)
I completely understand. I just had a grand baby on Monday, and I’m already wondering how much blog time I want to have. Enjoy this new chapter of your life!
Congratulations Mimi! That is WONDERFUL news! I’m so happy for you!
