My Feature Day on theSITSGirls.com!

15,000 women and growing every day!

Yippee! It’s my feature day on theSITSGirls.com – a warm and welcoming blogging community whose purpose is to educate, encourage, and connect women who blog. Each day, they feature a different blog and to earn that feature, you have to participate – visiting the featured bloggers and leaving comments nearly every day. In addition to these networking activities, they run a fantastic one day blogging conference called Bloggy Boot Camp as well as pithy online education programs like the recent 31 Days to Build a Better Blog (#SITS31DBBB).

How Did Bubbe Bake It - BlogHerFood aha momentSo welcome to my little piece of the burgeoning food blogging world. I’ve been writing for two years now, just celebrating my second blogaversary in February. I was inspired to start my blog by a fabulous trip to Italy in 2008, but continue to find inspiration from my baking bubbe, and my family’s diverse ethnic background and unending love for all things food. Before blogging, I was a high tech marketing communications professional for 17 years and have been limping my way through parenting two impossibly great kids for 17 years now as well, thankfully with my husband of 21 years (@dormantchef) right by my side!Orange Thyme Cocktail Cookies

I write about anything that inspires me to say OMG! Yummy but here are some of my favorites:

    Happy SITS day!

    • omgyummy March 1, 2012 at 9:25 am #

      Hi Robin – though occasionally I tackle something complicated, mostly I only have time for super simple quick meals and usually, those are the best! So cook simple and cook often!

    thanks for posting picture of you and grandma. forgot about that one. wish I loved cooking now as much as I used to because most of your recipes sound delicious. Ah! one of these days.

    • omgyummy March 5, 2012 at 6:41 pm #

      You should keep cooking – I am actually starting to find it relaxing even when I think I am too tired to cook!

  21. Deanna @ Little Green Bow March 1, 2012 at 11:12 am #

    Happy SITS Day! How lovely that it coincided with your 2 year blogaversary. I’m loving your delicious (or should I say yummy!) recipes. Mouth. Is. Watering. Will definitely be back and have liked your facebook page from my page so we can keep in touch there too. Enjoy your day in the spotlight! It’s been very nice meeting you. Cheers!

    • omgyummy March 5, 2012 at 6:43 pm #

      Nice meeting you too! I’m still trying to catch up with all the comments and attempt to visit and say hi to everyone at their own blog. And yes, it was fortuitous for sure, that it coincided with my 2 yr anniversary but whoo, it’s been busy (not complaining!)

  22. almostsinglemom March 1, 2012 at 11:13 am #

    OMG yum! I love to cook and bake! i can’t wait to check out some recipes and I’ll follow you on pintrest!

    • omgyummy March 5, 2012 at 6:47 pm #

      Oh thanks for the follow – I am still trying to make Pinning a little more of my regular routine. But I’m working on it. What are your cooking and baking specialties?

  23. Ashley Marie March 1, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    Happy SITS day!!! All of those recipes sounds delish! Off to check some of them out. :)

  24. Journee Kapri March 1, 2012 at 2:31 pm #

    Happy SITS day!

  25. Brook @ redheadreverie March 1, 2012 at 2:32 pm #

    Congrats on your SITS day!!! And…I just pinned the Breaded Chicken recipe on Pinterest…perhaps it will make an appearance on next week’s meal plan.

    • omgyummy March 5, 2012 at 6:48 pm #

      Oh I hope so and be sure to come back and let me know!

  26. jamiegall1930 March 1, 2012 at 2:44 pm #

    Happy SITS Days!!! Look forward to taking a peek around =)

  27. Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday' March 1, 2012 at 8:34 pm #

    I am pretty sure I need to eat everything here! I think the dough post is genius as pies from scratch are the best and that’s how our family makes them but it’s so intimidating. I am off to check out the breaded chicken recipe and plan to make the Savory Cheese and Chive bread to drink with a big fat glass of red wine:)! Happy SITS day!

    • omgyummy March 5, 2012 at 6:50 pm #

      Dough is oddly such an intimidating thing until you get to know it better. I’m still leaning towards the intimidating side of things but I’m getting more confident. Glad you enjoyed the post and would love to be drinking a glass of red wine with you right about now!

  28. Carlo/Carlo At Your Service Productions March 1, 2012 at 10:44 pm #

    Now, ain’t THAT the truth; you post/section: finding the courage to bake. You’d think I’d be
    “over” not liking to bake, but I’m not. And you totally crack me up… talking about “doughaphobic”! For real, I can so sincerely relate.

    You’d think I’d be over the whole baking-itis thing, being a caterer and all. But, shhhh… Don’t tell anyone. I don’t really like it because you can’t ad-lib. You must follow the recipe, measuring everything, and doing exactly what they say. But you know, as much as I love producing parties, I love cooking (not baking, thankyouverymuch) a lot too. And, coming in second would have to be, event planning. So I truly admire you for ‘fessing up to how you REALLY feel. I’m on the “Carlo Reality & Truth Tour”, so I might as well shame the devil and talk about this too – like you do.

    Beth, you are certainly inspiring. Blogging for two (2) years and already making SITS “Featured Blog of the Day”? You go! Having accomplished that – you give me hope. One day, something like what has happened to you, can happen to me too. Awesome!

    Well Beth, many, many congratulations to you for making such a fine achievement! Thank you for sharing you Bubbe and all of your foodisihness with us SITSGirls and the world. Bravo to you… Bravo!

    • omgyummy March 5, 2012 at 6:51 pm #

      Thanks for all your thoughtful comments! I’m glad you enjoyed my bubbe and my baking posts – they are some of my favorites for sure!

  29. Julie M. March 2, 2012 at 4:41 am #

    Woohoo! Congrat on your SITS day and on your 2nd blogiversary! I see that you’re speaking at BlogHer food. I just bought my ticket so I’ll be there as well. I can’t wait to catch up again. Hope you have a great weekend Beth!

    • omgyummy March 5, 2012 at 6:52 pm #

      Oh I am so glad you’ll be there Julie! I will be dashing in on Friday morning and dashing out Sat night because of graduation commitments at home but I will be there!! Can’t wait to see you again! Congrats on your recent anniversary too!

  30. Chantilly Patiño (@biculturalmom) March 2, 2012 at 4:44 am #

    Happy SITS Day Beth! Excited to see you’re going to BlohHer Food…and speaking! Glad to find you. :)

    Congrats on your SITS day!! Those matzo meal pancakes look soooo good!!! My husband looks forward to my yearly matzo ball soup so I’ll have to try these out soon.

    • omgyummy March 5, 2012 at 10:16 pm #

      Can you believe it’s almost time for Matzo Ball Soup and Gelfilte fish??? Try the matzo meal pancake – so easy but so different and comforting.
