Happy Birthday (to my blog)

July 22, 2013

Today is my blog's first birthday--it all started on July 22, 2012, with a post about garlic scape pesto.  Since then, my recipe writing skills have improved, I've accumulated single dishes of various colors from Goodwill to stage food on, and I snap photos of my meal whenever I go to restaurants.

Looking over the past year's posts, I realized that I had accomplished much more than I thought:

And along the way, I've shared lots of my standby recipes, found some new favorites, eaten some memorable restaurant meals, and consumed impressive amounts of CSA produce.  Thank you to everyone who's following along on my culinary journey, especially my parents (my most loyal readers).  Thanks to Mike for the tech support, your willingness to try new things, and for your patience as I photograph everything before letting you start dinner.  I couldn't do it without you.

Here's hoping the upcoming year will be as productive and tasty as the last!
