This just goes to show how bad I am at remembering momentous occasions...apparently my one year anniversary of blogging was yesterday.

Thank you to all my readers - and especially my commenters - you've made the last year a very special, and surprisingly fulfilling journey.

I started this blog after moving to a new area. It was the first time I'd ever moved outside of the greater Seattle area and I didn't know a single soul other than my husband. I'd just gone through a very personal tragedy and was grasping at straws to keep myself sane. I'd been reading food blogs for a while, but didn't think I had the chops to write one myself - it seemed very intimidating.

Nevertheless, I jumped in with both feet and found it to be at once challenging and therapeutic. I have evolved and improved as a cook and as a photographer and can only hope to continue doing so as I progress.

Again, thank you to everyone who has contributed to the last year - either with ideas, advice, or a nice comment or two along the way.

I guess it's into the kitchen for another year of making tasty foods and writing about them - I hope to see you, same time and same place, this time next year.

Congrats! A year goes by fast, doesn't it? I was thinking about you-- my neighbor-- because I blog so much about "The Farm" in Salinas (where I live). Have you ever been there? The produce is fresh, organic and so inexpensive. You might want to take a drive, before you leave this area. If you're lucky, you can buy freshly laid eggs from the hens that are right there.

Congrats! One year is positively "old" in blog years. ;) Hopefully there will be many more years to come!
