This week we are celebrating four years (4!!!!) of Lottie + Doof. Where does the time go? I am celebrating by taking a break, and turning over this small piece of internet real estate to some of my favorite writers, photographers, eaters and makers. Over the next few days you will be visited by a wonderful mix of people, sharing and celebrating with you. It is going to be beautiful, delicious, weird and wacky. Think of it as a variety show, of sorts. It is a great line-up and I am excited to see it all unfold.
But before the show begins, I want to thank you. Where would I be without you?! Thanks for making this such a cool place to hang out. After four years, it seems like we’re off to a good start. I am looking forward to many more years of cooking together.
Enjoy the week—I’ll see you in the comments!

Congratulations, Tim! Your blog has served as an inspiration to me. I like the simple and clean layout and your elegant yet fun style of writing. You manage to teach the reader and give tips without coming through as intimidating. Hugs and here’s to loads of food coming out of your kitchen!

Wow! 4 years. What dedication you have. Love your blog. I just made 7 jars of “Wild Hog Plum Jam” and wish you could taste it. Sweet, tart, brilliant dusky red….yum. Picked wild in the woods. Next will be “crab apple jelly” from the tree in my yard. Keep up the good life guys.
