2011: A Year In Review

Pin It
So I just read a good foodie friends 'A Year in Review" and it got me thinking about this being my first year in blogging.  Everything started for me last January where I had only 3 posts including the plans for my little blogging adventure and look where I have come. I now on the 31st of December have 191 posts, 89 followers on my blog, 1,161 fans on Facebook, 172 followers on Twitter, 119 repins on Pinterest and a 97 buzz rating on Foodbuzz... all in all, I would say that I have had an EXCELLENT year. I have learned so much and can't even begin to start on all the dishes and recipes that were my 'first ever' attempts because there are just too many to even count. Everything has been such a learning experience and such surprise as to what it has actually become.


Take a bad cook with little direction and a lot of aspirations, a man she loves with a hungry appetite, add a little spice and spills and you have me 1 year later, and I am still loving this adventure.


I would love to see what topped the charts, what was may favorite, and what was a culinary eye open over this past years journey.
So... here I go with my top 10:

It has been such a great year and looking through all the recipes I have tried and made only lets me know that there is so always something to learn and somewhere to grow.

Here's to 2012, may you be just as fun and even more delicious...
Happy New Years!
