top 15 french recipes of the year 2022

Running a food blog is quite time-consuming. From recipe creation, shopping, cooking with often several tests to provide the best recipe, tasting (the best part!), cleaning up, shooting and editing, blog post with recipe directions, detailed information with SEO optimization, and whenever possible digging in my books on French gastronomy to tell you the story behind… then finally clicking on the post button. When I think the job is done then comes social media and newsletter! The ads you see are here to cover my costs but not enough yet to make an income.

Running My Parisian Kitchen is also a real pleasure and gives me the possibility to share my love of French food and build a community of France and food lovers. Thank you so much for following my foodie journey in Paris here on the blog and social media. Merci for your feedback and your kind words. It means a lot to me and encourages m to share even more. Merci beaucoup à vous.

When I look at 2022, I fell like I haven’t shared the third of what I wanted to. Blog redesign and technical optimization done in the first half of 2022 took a lot of time on top of a busy year at my office (I also work full-time). In 2023 will be the second part of the blog optimization with work on content. I will definitely post much more recipes, focusing on traditional French dishes with the story behind and daily and easy home cooking.
