One Year Ago Today…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — bettylou79 @ 9:22 pm

I started this blog one year ago today.  There were several reasons that I started it.  One was that I had been recently introduced to the world of food blogging by the lovely ladies on the Nest’s What’s Cooking board.   I loved looking at all the new and yummy recipes.  Another reason I started it was becuase I needed something to do over the summer.  I am currently a substitute teacher so as you can imagine there isn’t any work as a sub in the summer.  Thankfully I did teach summer school to fun group of 21 pre-Kindergarteners and pre-1st graders.  I had a blast with them and I’m excited to be teaching summer school again this summer.  Another reason that I started the blog was to have some where to chronicle all the recipes that I was trying and those that were my favorites. This blog inspired me to take risks, try new foods and set some food goals and resolutions.

I was trying to figure out a way to celebrate this milestone and first I decided to do a list of my top 10 favorite posts from the previous year.  That task was much more difficult than I had thought.  So I decided to do my top 3 favorite recipes from all most all the categories I have created for this blog.

Here goes!  I’ve included links to each recipe.  Enjoy!  I hope some of my favorites are also yours.
