Happy (Triple) Birthday!
It's a triply special day around my house today. First of all, my roomie's friend, Rachel, is spending the weekend with us, and it's her birthday. I made her the special French toast this morning by request. And it also happens to be my beloved boy, Grady, the PBGV's birthday. He's three today and still acts like a demon puppy! (But I gave him a piece of birthday French toast, too.)
Lastly, and most germaine to this space, it is also the one-year anniversary of this fine blog! That's right. Exactly one year ago today, as I was holed up in the back bedroom during a stretch of subzero weather, sitting in front of the one working heat source in the house at the time, I made the serendipitous decision to start my own food blog. And 130 posts and almost 12,000 hits later, and here we are! It has been a great experience writing about my adventures (and misadventures) with cooking and baking, and it has been fun and rewarding to be a part of such a vibrant online community and network of foodie friends and bloggers. So, thanks everyone for your readership, your comments and e-mails, and for your wonderful support. I truly appreciate it!
Ok, so...onward to post 131 and year number two! :-)
