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!)

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.

    I must say I love your blog. You have inspired me by what I have seen on your site. I have saved many of your recipes to my computer and intend to try them in the coming year. Thanks, Cindy
