I began KB way back in 2008 when I was a member of the writing blog "Open Salon," an adjunct of Salon.com. It was a tightly-knit group of incredible people who were political and creative. It followed a magazine-type format, complete with a cover that changed daily or weekly. Anyone could make cover with an article or photograph they created. It was great fun and very competitive. And, yes, I made cover several times.
People often wrote and talked about food, shared recipes, took great shots of prepared dishes. That's when I began my food-blog journey.
Alas, after the 2008 election, the site fell in disrepair and finally closed. Personally, looking back, especially from what we now know of "social media," I firmly believe it was all a psy-op and, as unique a group as we were, we were studied to death until they had the information they wanted. Remember, this is the time FB is launching. There was no Twitter.
Responses to my recipes and columns motivated me to continue. When it went under, I missed it dearly. That's when Kitchen Bounty was born ...
Thanks to all who visit. I especially want to thank those who make the recipes I post and then write back to me, personally.
Now that I am retired, I can spend more time on the website. By the end of 2023, I hope to totally revamp it and to begin videos of the recipes I post once I get a newer kitchen that is more formidable for filming.
In the meantime, be on the lookout for nice giveaways. More on that next week!
