Life is Yummly!


I have always loved the word yummly and use it a lot to describe anything that I taste that is insanely delicious!  And before I became acquainted with Yummly, the recipe search site, I had always associated this term with Winnie the Pooh somehow.  I think I was getting confused with ‘rumbly in my tumbly’, which Pooh says often, and which happens to me quite a bit, too!

Yesterday, I had the good fortune to come home to an email, in which I was alerted that Yummly had used my recipe for Cranberry Cherry Ribbon Cookies in an article called ‘10 Christmas Cookies that Will Put You in a Cookie Coma’How very awesome!

Yummly is the world’s largest and most powerful recipe search site.  They have been featured by The Today Show, Reuters, Fox, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch, and more.  And they have millions of viewers and subscribers.  So you can imagine my surprise when they wrote to tell me that I would be added to their list of other hand picked blogs that are featured by them and that my recipes were “Certified Yummly”.  I am proud to be associated with such a wonderful site, and one that I use so often in my own recipe searches!  And I am in great company with so many other wonderful blogs!

Baking is a passion that really teaches patience.  But sometimes….. when you are patient enough….. life is not only good… is Yummly!
