A rhubarb trilogy and a perfect end to a fun blog launching weekend

Rhubarb trilogy

FoodFamily is online since 11 days!

So far we are counting 640 visits to our blog, 1800 page views and 102 Facebook likes. We wrote 13 posts and spent countless hours on Skype (and in the kitchen).

What kind of navigation is best? How do we structure our recipes? How should our Facebook header image look like?
We need to improve our “about us” text! What defines FoodFamily? What value suggestion do we have for our readers? Design our logo, implement SEO data, install Instagram, email-accounts, plug-in 1, plug-in 2, reconsider our theme AND AND AND!!! Other bloggers out there, you know what we are talking about, right?

But, it is fun! FoodFamily is still in its babyshoes but we are motivated to keep it up! The support we got so far is great and as long as our family reads our blog the concept already worked, right? 🙂

It is not our ultimate aim to provide you with outstanding food photography or haute cuisine recipes. But we want to pass on the passion for cooking, take away the fear of trying new recipes, motivate you to cook for guests and most importantly share recipes with friends and family. Isn´t most of the fun to actually talk about it and exchange cooking experiences?

That´s why the third sister is already around the corner, ready to share some recipes of hers. As a mom of a 5 month old and a strong interest in healthy nutrition Katja will surely add some real value to the blog!

But let´s go back to the heading of this post:
A rhubarb trilogy – that was our chosen dessert last week in Copenhagen. We wanted to make something seasonal (rhubarb), sophisticated (trilogy), but not too complicated to prepare. The trilogy consists of a rhubarb tartar, a nice rhubarb shot and a really special rhubarb sorbet.*
