Happy 1st Birthday!

Today, Jo’s Kitchen is 1-year-old. I cannot believe I have been blogging for a year already. It has gone so quick.  I would like to thank my family, friends, work colleagues, fellow food bloggers and most importantly, Stuart for all their love and support. I could not have done it without you. I would like to thank you, the readers of my blog, I could not have done it without you either. Your help, support and comments are much appreciated and I always welcome your feedback.

A year ago today, I started this blog (it was on Blogger then) without really any clue as to what I was doing. I just knew that I wanted to share my recipes with the world. Blogging has now come to mean much more than that to me and has opened my eyes to a whole new world of foodie adventures and lots of new people. I hope to continue this trend in the next year and beyond.

To celebrate, Jo’s Kitchen being 1-year-old, I am having my first giveaway. You can win two cookbooks and all you need to do is leave a comment on this post. The two cookbooks are ‘Maze – The Cookbook’ by Jason Atherton and ‘Chicken and Other Birds’ by John Torode. The giveaway is open to UK residents only and to be entered into the giveaway, you must leave a comment on this post by Tuesday 16th March 6pm GMT. I will then use Random.org to find a winner from all the comments left. Any questions, please let me know via email at joskitchen@hotmail.co.uk (The giveaway is now closed and the winner will be announced on the post on Thursday 18th March. Thanks to all who have entered)

Thanks again for all your support and friendship this year. It is much appreciated. Until next time,

Happy Cooking! :-)

  20. Wow, one yr, still have a way to go for my 1st Birthday. Maze cookbook is fantastic, had lulnch there one weekend and requested a signed copy and it has produced many fine meals for the family and a Christmas dinner. Still finding my way with my blog and reading yours and our other friends helps a lot. Enjoy the tweets too.
