First, I made an awesome dinner Sunday night that really made me appreciate the power of food bringing people together. My mom, dad, Bri, and I enjoyed BBQ Pulled Apple Chicken, Strawberry Spinach Salad (Fresh, sliced strawberries, baby spinach, goat cheese, and candy pecans with Poppyseed Dressing), Broccoli-Slaw (recipe on the bag plus 1/2 cup of Dried Cherries), and Grilled Corn on the Cob. Plus, I made a delish Strawberry Cake. It was a lovely evening!
|Great way to do corn: just butter, garlic, salt, and pepper, |
wrap 'em up in foil and place on the grill until cooked!
|Awesome way to eat: enjoying the outdoors |
on a gorgeous evening
And then, I woke up this morning to discover that yesterday, my blog reached 1000 views in just ONE day. I remember when I was super pumped when I reached 10,000 views TOTAL. But, now I am up to 28,000! I couldn't figure out what was going on, until I noticed that Blogger made me a Blog of Note! AND THEN, this morning I woke up to one of the more exciting e-mails of my life: my Strawberry Yogurt Cake made the FoodBuzz Top 9!!!!
I can't believe that so many people are enjoying my site. This was all started because I was bored and wanted a way to keep track of my college experience and celebrate my love of cooking. This is all just a hobby for me and way to keep me sane. I love being able to get my thoughts down in writing and food is just something I am completely in love with. The fact that others are enjoying my recipes and stories as well is a huge blessing and completely baffling to me. I just want to say, Thank You!
