I love cooking blogs, and started Creating Home with Medievalist some months ago as a place we could both stash recipes and thoughts on modern living and so on. Then I gave my mom the link, and she started commenting -- so I invited her to blog there, too. It's been fun beyond my wildest expectations, blogging with family.

How many of you guys are group-blogging? What are your experiences? I'm really, really loving it, and find myself hugely looking forward to my mom's posts. We've been having so much fun kicking ideas around on the phone or via email, and it's been a really cool chance to interact, to cook together even though we're a thousand miles apart, and to reminisce -- and I love the idea of having her memories and recipes stashed there, too. I've always been close to my mom, but I feel closer to her than I have in probably twenty years.
