One Year Blogoversary and Links!


I can't believe I've been blogging for a whole year now! What started as a random experiment to get me through the long winter has turned into a passion/hobby/second career. In the past year, I've learned about photography, tried dozens of new dishes and ingredients, connected with many wonderful people on the web and tackled multiple holiday meals. It has been quite the cooking/writing/eating adventure!

Best of all, this is not only my blogoversary but my 201st post as well!  You may notice some changes on the site going forward, I have a lot of plans to update and upgrade my website this year. In this endeavor, I will be helped by the lovely Melissa from Fine Lime Designs, who has patiently answered all my crazy questions so far. Check our her site and her food blog!


I wanted to take a minute to reflect back on my first year of blogging and share with you some of my all time favorite recipes and posts. At the end of 2011, I shared my most popular posts, but as any food blogger will tell you, popularity has more to do with the quality of the photo then the quality or taste of the dish. Here are some of my favorite recipes from my first year of blogging that I absolutely love so much. I am going to remake and re-imagine a few of these in the upcoming weeks so keep an eye out!

This is the post that started it all: Quinoa Cakes. 


Some of my favorites from my first year of blogging:

Congratulation on your anniversary and what a cute photo of the cupcake! It's funny how quickly blogging goes form a curiosity driven pass time to nearly obsessive proportions... You've shared some wonderful recipes, especially the Quinoa Cakes and the Honey-Lime Chicken. Yummy!
