The Mountain Kitchen 2014 Review + A Very Exciting Announcement!

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 88,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.

I can hardly believe how fast this year has gone by!! It seems like only yesterday, when I started this blog in February of 2013 with terrible smoker’s flu and a passion for food. I really didn’t know I was going to like blogging so much. Writing this blog has been a great experience. It has given me some great opportunities, and most importantly it has given me some pretty great friendships. I expect to make so many new friends. I love communicating with people of different walks of life all over the world. Sharing experiences with others and then learning from them and their experiences.

We would like to personally thank each and every one of you who have stopped by to visit us at The Mountain Kitchen. That is what makes all of this so worthwhile. It is you! You, the person that took 5 minutes out of their day just to see what kind of crazy meals David and I made, what His Royal Highness has been up to, our life here up on the Blue Ridge or to read the crazy stories like the one about the bear and the goat.

I want you to know that I really haven’t taken the past two weeks off from this blog as mentioned in my last post. I have been working behind the scenes and

I am excited to announce that The Mountain Kitchen has officially purchased a domain!! 😀 😀

During this time, I ask for your patience. All the technical aspects of setting up a website is making me dust off all the computer skills I have and forcing me to learn new software and so many new things. (All of you fellow bloggers know what I am talking about.) I hope to have our new site up and running soon, but again it will take some time. will be up as soon as I can get it ready to introduce to the world. Although, picking out a theme would sure speed up the process… You never know how indecisive you can be until given endless options!

When I get the site ready, our wish for you is the same as it has always been. We hope you get a good laugh, learn something new and find something good to eat while you are here. Then take it with you and share it with others. May 2015 be all you wish it to be.

Thanks for visiting & come back again soon!


Debbie, David & HRH

Smoke Free and 80,000 Views Later

WE'VE REACHED (1)Wow, we’ve hit 80,000 views! 

I can’t believe it!! I started this blog over a year and a half ago as a way to focus my energy on staying smoke free. Since then, I have remained smoke free and this blog has become my new addiction. I am learning a lot of new things about cooking and blogging and still have lots to explore and learn. Most importantly, I have enjoyed making new friends and getting into some awesome discussions with some pretty cool folks about food, interesting stories, and memories.  I have enjoyed every minute of it.


I appreciate your readership and support. I look forward to more exploring and sharing in the future. I hope that you continue to follow us as we continue to try to bring you recipes, kitchen tips, food facts and stories about life on the mountain.

I would also like to thank my husband. David contributes to this blog, but he has also had to put up with me trying to take pictures of food while he is either in the middle of cooking or right before he gets ready to eat a plate of food. He has been very helpful, and cooperative… well, maybe a little impatient, but that is ok! 😉

Thanks to all who stop by The Mountain Kitchen! I hope you will visit often or just stop by and say hello!

Much Thanks,

Debbie Spivey
