Foodie Question (and a chance for lurkers to say hi!)

First of all, Happy April Fools Day!

I’ve been doing this blog for a little over 18 months and I have to say, it has grown into a much bigger part of my life than I ever thought it would. I’m really enjoying it. Like most other bloggers, I especially love when people leave comments for me. It reminds me that people really do read along as I bake my way through life.

So today I’d like to ask everyone to come out and post a comment. Whether you’ve been following along from the beginning, or just recently found my blog; even if you’ve never commented on this or any other blog, or if you’re a comment addict, I’d love to hear from you! I’ll even give you a topic.

What is your biggest accomplishment in the kitchen? If you don’t have a specific kitchen related accomplishment, how about something else you’re proud of in life? Maybe even a great April Fools prank?

Thanks to all my readers. I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride as much as I have. There are plenty of new posts piling up under Drafts that need to get published, and I’ll soon be featuring the adventures of a Beantown kitchen remodel! Hang on tight, it’s going to be a wild ride.

Oh, and if you’re reading this in a feed reader, click through to see my newly revamped layout and design. I couldn’t have done it without the help of The Cutest Blog on the Block. Let me know what you think.

I’ll share my answer to the topic. My biggest accomplishment in the kitchen has been overcoming some major fears in the kitchen. Yeast was the biggest one. In the past year I’ve made bread, yeast pretzels, and yeast cinnamon rolls! I get inspired by many other food bloggers out there and plan to keep chugging through my list of must-bake recipes.

    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!
