Happy 100th Post to ME!

This is my 100th post and I wanted to squeeze it in because I will be having a few updates this weekend. I wanted to share some stats about my blog. I also want to thank everyone who reads my blog – it really makes my day (especially when you leave comments!)

First post: August 28, 2007

My go-to recipes from this blog:

DinnerGnocchi with Shrimp, Asparagus, and Pesto or Cilantro Turkey Burgers– we make these a couple times a month. I like to make up 4 turkey patties and cook two that night and wrap the other two in plastic wrap and freeze them in a ziploc bag for a quick dinner later on.

CupcakesChocolate cupcakes with Chocolate cream cheese frosting – this combo is my all-time favorite, although I do love all my cupcakes!

CookiesJoelen’s chocolate chip cookies – you can’t go wrong with this recipe – they’re so soft and chewy

SidesHomemade applesauce and Sweet potato home fries – these recipes each get made about once a week. Everyone always asks for both of these recipes. The applesauce does take some time, but it’s definitely worth it in the end!

BreakfastBanana Blueberry muffins – these also get made a couple times a month. I usually make a double batch and freeze them in individual ziploc bags. Then we can each grab one on the way out the door for a quick healthy breakfast

I’ve really enjoyed blogging these past 8 months and plan to continue blogging. I have been slacking lately and I need to step it up in that department.

Some recipes to look forward to in the near future: Crockpot pulled pork, Summer salsa, and of course more cupcakes!

Also, hubby and I will be renovating our kitchen soon. Unfortunately, we will be without a working kitchen for about 8 weeks. That means 2 months without Daring Bakers challenges, Cupcakes Hero entries, and basically any other cooking/baking that I usually blog about. I’ll probably post some progress pictures as we go so you all can see how it’s going.

    Interesting to know those things really happen! So what was your official feedback, and had everyone been raving about the food before the announcement? Hubby and I have eaten the Wanchai Ferry Sweet & Sour Chicken and weren’t thrilled with it (tasted very sweet and goopy, just overall processed). I guess it’s all psychological!

    Hahahaha that’s so funny that they did a little switch on you. Like you pointed out, I guess that is how they did the Pizza Hut commercials.

    I think you did a great, fair recap of the event. It was at least really nice to run into you there! And you got some great pictures.

    Sarah – I updated my post to include more feedback. As I mentioned, we were discussing how the first two courses were much better than the entrees. At least at our table, there was no raving.

    I’m glad you had fun, although I’m a bit perplexed that they thought they could fool foodies with a frozen dinner! I still haven’t been to Flour and really need to go – I feel like I’m a bad Boston blogger!

    I agree Kerstin, most food bloggers probably don’t eat many frozen entrees… But it definitely wasn’t all food bloggers.

    I heard about this event from Megan and it sounds interesting to say the least. It just seems like GM didn’t do their research because that is not similar to Myers + Chang’s food! Either way, at least you had fun with some other food bloggers!
