It's My Blogiversary!

Exactly one year ago today I started this blog. I have had an absolute blast sharing recipes with you, cooking new things, and discovering the delicious world that is food blogging. I want to thank all of you who have commented on my blog, tell me that you read my blog, have tried a recipe that I've posted, or stop by to check out my blog every once in a while. I appreciate you so much! You are the reason I keep plugging away at this pastime of mine.

In my first year of blogging, I have posted almost 150 recipes! I selected 10 of my favorite recipes to recount by looking over all of the recipes I've posted and thinking to myself, "If I could only eat ten of these things again, which ten things would I pick?" Here they are in no particular order because they are all sooooo good it's just too hard to rank them.

BBQ Short Ribs

Rosemary Rolls

Spanish Flan

Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars

Aunt Becky's Pasta Florentine

Cornish Game Hens

Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Onion-Blue Cheese Sauce

Gram's Coleslaw

Aunt Chris' Pineapple Cheeseball

Scalloped Corn

To celebrate my one year blogiversary I am going to give away a $25 gift card to Williams Sonoma, which in my humble opinion is the premier place to buy new things for your kitchen. My hubby and I registered for our wedding at WS and I was very very sad when all our gift cards ran out. So I decided that I will treat myself to something new at Williams Somona to celebrate one year of food blogging -- I mean I have been slaving away in the kitchen for over a year now -- don't you think I deserve something new and beautiful?? I also want to give one of my lovely readers a little gift to say thank you and to help me celebrate!

Here are the rules to enter:

You will receive an second entry if you are a follower of my blog or become a follower -- be sure to leave a second comment.
