Welcome to 2020!

Happy New Year to all of my favorite foodies!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a great time ringing in this new decade.  I, for one, am looking forward to a new year of possibilities, opportunities, and amazing food!

In 2019, I took a brief hiatus from blogging to get some ducks in a row.  The Saucy Tomato has been around for 3 years now and it’s time for some Spring, er, Winter cleaning, reorganizing, and revamping.  There are some exciting things on 2020’s horizon that I wanted to share with you…

First and foremost, 🍤NEW RECIPES!🍤  I’ve had a revelation: I’m no Ree Drummond or Giada.  I can’t whip up a new recipe every week to keep you ever on your toes, constantly intrigued.  I’m a Real Life person.  Things come up and life gets in the way.  So I’ve revised my own expectations and I think they’ll line up with yours better, too.  My goal is one fabulous new recipe each month.  I feel like that is doable for all of us.  After all, who has time to cook an entirely new recipe every single week?  Not this girl!

📸NEW PHOTO SPACE!📸  My home, while beautiful to me, is not ideal for crisp, clear food photos.  So I propositioned a friend about using HER home, with its excellent lighting and newer finishes, and we’ve come to an agreement:  I will cook food for my pics at her house while she’s at work and she gets to come home to dinner already made!  We are both so excited about this! 

🔴NEW PINTEREST PAGE!🔴  Saucy is finally on Pinterest!  I’m still learning the ropes, but under the tutelage of a fellow blogger friend, I brainstormed on some successful pin ideas and started the process. It’s a scantily clad page at the moment as I get my bearings, but you’re welcome to check it out if you like. I promise you’ll be sorely disappointed, haha!  Stay tuned for an official “Launch Party” announcement when the page has shaped up more.

📝RECIPE REVISING!📝  I will be revisiting some of my favorites older recipes and revising them to accommodate needed or wanted changes.  Once a month or so, I will repost these updated versions. What does this mean for you?  You are getting the best of the best from my archives this year!

👍FACEBOOK FUN!👍  Saucy will continue with its usual Facebook banter that we’ve grown to love, including (but not limited to) the Monday Munchies, TIPsy Tuesday, the Not-So-Grocery-List, and Food for Thought.  (There is also a link to these on my blog, under The Snack Pack.) 

💞MAYBE SOME INCENTIVES…?💞  I had an idea rolling around in my head for some incentives.  Something like: if you refer X number of friends who end up following me on FB, Pinterest, or sign up with the blog site, I will reward you with a “secret” recipe that no one else is privy to.  I mean, that’s pretty cool, right?  We shall see.  It’s still a thought in process…

Just reading all of this makes me smile.  I love the feeling of fresh starts that a new year brings.  Thanks for still being here.  Cheers to a deliciously fun 2020! 🥂
