GIVEAWAY WINNER and a look back on my first year.....

In honor of my 1 year Bloggiversary I am announcing YVONNE, come on down.........you are the lucky winner of Jaden Hairs Steamy Kitchen Cookbook and a Redletterwords 12x12 cafe mount print!!!

It's interesting to see what posts received the most reaction from readers. Of course all of the Sheila & Ree posts were very popular. My highest traffic was on this post, because Ree gave me a shout-out on her Facebook page....and my blog went BEZERKO. We were on a road trip out East at the time, my phone started ringing off the hook. I was ignoring it....I was on vacation. Finally I answered to a freaked out Big D, gasping for air and trying to tell me Ree had given me a shout out on Facebook. Hokey Pete!

This post also got a bit of a reaction.

Some of my recipes that people seem to feel strongly about are:

What really matters, is not the volume of comments or visitors to my site, but when someone, says, "thanks, you made me smile today". I gotta tell ya those comments get me right in the tear ducts. I really, really feel blessed to have you all in my life. Thanks for reading. Here's to another year!
