Five years ago, as a new vegan growing accustomed to hearing “wait, you’re vegan, what do you even eat?”, I decided to start Fried Dandelions. (My very first post is here. Don’t look. Ok, fine, look, but be nice-ha!) I loved to cook, and share food with friends, so writing down my recipe creations seemed like a logical next step. I’m pretty sure that my mom was my only reader for the first while, but I kept on plugging along, sharing nightly dinners, vegan restaurant finds, and ideas on feeding kiddos. Fast forward 5 years and I now have nearly 15,000 followers across social media. Thank you for sharing my recipes, it means the world to me. I am amazed, humbled, and excited to see how my blog has grown, and can’t wait to see where it goes in the future. I have big goals of teaching cooking classes, traveling cooking birthday parties, and someday writing my own Fried Dandelions cookbook. In the meantime, I’ll continue doing what I love most—sharing my recipes and interacting with my wonderful readers turned friends. Thank you for all of your support over the past five years—I truly could not do this without all of you to share with!
