One-Year Anniversary of The Baking Bluenoser! (A little late...)
With everything that's been going on, I've been so busy that I completely missed the one-year anniversary of The Baking Bluenoser! I started this blog last February and it's been a great journey so far. I had never blogged before in my life, let alone created/managed a website! I have learned a lot in one year and I know that there is still much more for me to learn.
Throughout the year, I've made a wide variety of recipes, and I have loved sharing them with everyone. It's great when I hear others tell me that they tried this recipe or that recipe and loved it! That's why I started this blog, so that I could share all the good recipes that I find with others. There is so much good food out there and I want to try it all!
Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of me and the website. It has meant a great deal to me and I couldn't have done it without your support!
Today, I'm sharing a recipe for Mexican Chicken Fajitas. Now, I know you can just go to your local grocery store and buy a package of fajita mix, but isn't there something satisfying about making food from scratch?
Well, there is for me anyway. It's like "pssh I don't have to pay the store money for that. I can just make it myself!"
You'll also notice the abundance of red AND green peppers in these fajitas. And if you're wondering, yes, I DID eat them! I know, I know, you should be very proud of me :) I making progress here folks!
