Saying goodbye and giving thanks

It is time for me to face facts. I no longer have the time or energy to keep Paper Chef going. I don’t have time to even write short notes in what was – more than four years ago now – intended just to be a personal record that would help me remember how to repeat dishes I’d made that I and others liked.

So, first of all, I would like to give a huge thank you on this day of thanks to all of you – all the food bloggers out there who loved and supported Paper Chef. You made it a wonderful and fun couple of years while it was going strong. My apologies for not being able to keep it running.

And thanks specifically to everybody who ever entered and particularly to those of you in the last year or so who have pushed me to continue.

May you all have a joyous (and thankful) Thanksgiving.


  1. Thank you for starting Paper Chef and keeping it running all this time. If my life weren’t so whack right now, I’d volunteer to take it over just so it wouldn’t die. But, for the next several months, I wouldn’t even have time to enter it, much lest host it.

    It was an excellent idea, and I very much enjoyed it the times I entered. Thanks, again, for birthing the brain child. Take care and have a little breathing room.

  2. Thanks to you, for starting and running such a fun event! I read the entries for months before I ever tried to participate, and it was always so much fun. I appreciate the hard work you did. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Sob, sob. It was great fun, and I enjoyed starring in my own TV screen (..OK it’s a blog). Thanks for keeping it going all this time. Perhaps Ilva will pick up it up??

  4. It was fun while it lasted…but not all things are meant to go on forever. Thanks for your past efforts and maybe one day you’ll be back with some grand new idea.

  5. Thanks for all the hard work you put into creating and running the event… sorry to see it go, but there never seems to be enough time for everything.
