Have you guys ever read The Vintage Mixer? While I love a LOT of blogs I have to admit that Becky’s is one of my favorites for many reasons, but a BIG one being that I just never know what to expect. She has such a wide variety of delicious food that it’s always exciting to see her new posts pop up in my reader. I always try to guess what it is before, and she surprises me every time!
But first let’s talk about how I came to find her blog (and Becky I don’t think I’ve ever even shared this story with you…?). A few years ago Nate and I were spending Christmas in Lubbock, Texas (my hometown) and made a point to eat at our friend Justin’s pizza restaurant. When Justin had a few moments he came over and chatted with us about starting businesses (he and Nate speak the same language there) and just about life in general. When he found out that I was a blogger he casually mentioned that his friend, Becky, had a blog called The Vintage Mixer and told me how awesome it was.
And then he said, “Oh yeah, she’s sitting right over there!”
Sure enough, across the room was another gal who totally gets this whole blogging thing, and typical to being me I froze up and got scared and didn’t go say hi and introduce myself. Instead I cyber-stalked Becky’s blog, fell in love, and then we became friends – knit cosmically together by our mutual love of good food, good company, great pizza in Lubbock, and the Lord. Becky, I’m sorry I didn’t introduce myself a few years ago, but I’m confident we will meet in the near future!
Anyway, one of my favorite things about The Vintage Mixer is the fact that Becky strives to not just eat seasonally, but to share that in a tangible way through her recipes. She also posts these fabulous seasonal eating calendars detailing what produce is currently in, which takes pretty much all of the guesswork out. The recipes are delicious and doable, and her heart for community and hospitality are inspiring.
I would (clearly) highly suggest checking out Becky’s blog – you won’t be sorry!
