Writing is therapeutic… and refreshing. Revisiting my past gives me a window to the present… it makes me appreciate what I have and how far I’ve become…
Cooking is a way to day dream and escape. A way to relax and wind down. It’s what i do when i want to be alone with my thoughts. Most especially… it is one of the ways I show my family how much I care about them…
My name is Tess Harris.
I had a successful blog on the now defunct Yahoo 360, and garnered over 600,000 page views from August to September 2006 while featured as one of the most interesting pages. I felt like a filipina celebrity. People have tried and tested the recipes I posted, and kept coming back for more.
Since Yahoo 360’s closure, I lost interest in the blogs and could not find a platform to express my creative side. I was amazed at how many people – ex Y360 friends, bloggers and pinay were searching for me. They wanted to know if I started another blog somewhere else. Some wished they could access my recipes again.
Last month, February 2010, my husband, Willie, suggested that I should just create another blog… “You know you should just start another blog and put your recipes out there. They’ll be people that could use your recipes, read your stories and learn from it. You’ve already got them… you’ve already spent plenty of time and efforts in creating them. Just put them out there for people to see. ”
That’s when I decided to make WordPress my new home.
My blogs are not just about food. They are stories about my life, my family and our experiences, weaved into the recipes. I often talked about the two most important people in my life – my husband and my son, and the food I cook for them.
Thanks for visiting.
I hope you leave with something a little more than when you came…
