Happy Holidays and CH on Edamam

XMAS

 

Merry Christmas everyone! It’s been a really exciting year for Chubby Hubby. We relaunched mid-year with a big bang and an amazing group of contributors. I have a lot to be thankful for–personally, my family of course; professionally, amazing business partners and ever-passionate, super-smart colleagues; and blogwise, the best and coolest team I could ever imagine assembling.

Our new look, our new team and our new sections

Pouring Champagne

We’re back! And I am sure you’ve already noticed, we’re back with a completely different look. I want to firstly thank every single person who gave us her or his feedback on which design template we should move to.

Checking in — revamp still in the works

Hi everyone. It’s been a really long time since I’ve been active here.

I thought I would share some recent photos with you guys. S and I took off for a super fast 3 day trip to Tokyo last week in order to celebrate her birthday. While we would have loved to have stayed longer, we had to get back in time for my son’s first birthday, which is only 3 days after S’s birthday. Yup, little T is now one year old and he’s the cutest kid on the planet (but hey, I’m biased!).

Portly Papa

So, there’s a small reason I haven’t had time to post for a while. 3.075 kilos small to be exact. On 10 March, my darling wife S and I became parents (for the first time). Our little boy–we’ll call him T on this site–is a real cutie and has been keeping both of us very busy. S is doing very, very well and I’m slowly getting used to fatherhood.

Last month, I had the pleasure of announcing and hosting a little contest sponsored very kindly by Staub. I had asked readers to send me their best photo of a gorgeously scrumptuous one-pot meal. The winner–chosen by my wife S and I–would receive a nice, brand new 18cm cherry red Staub cocotte.
