My grandparents hosted a small party a few days after Christmas, so my family and I drove down to Southern California to attend. Partway through the evening, one of Grandpa’s friends and his wife (both recently retired doctors!) asked me what I did for a living.
I explained a little bit about Amy’s Healthy Baking and how I published my own cookbook and share recipes here on my blog. My grandfather overheard and insisted on pulling out a hardback copy of my cookbook to place in the hands of his friend.
Shock immediately spread across the man’s face. “You wrote this??” he asked in disbelief. “And you took the pictures?? And developed every recipe yourself?” I nodded, to which he replied, “I can’t believe it! It’s so professional!”
He flipped through every page, with each turn growing a little more awed than on the previous recipe, and he continued to ask questions about how I made the treats healthier than traditional ones as he browsed. When he reached the end of the cookbook, he inquired further about my blog, how I hired a team (hi ladies!! ♡), and how I earn my entire full income from it.
As I reflected on the evening after the party guests left, I almost couldn’t believe what had happened… A doctor, with one of the highest salaries and most prestigious professions, was impressed by me!
And I owe a lot of that to you!
Your interest in my recipes and cookbook, how you share links to them with your family and friends, how you save those recipe links on Facebook and Pinterest, how you try those recipes and post pictures to share with me on Instagram…
