That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Blog Anniversary

My first post went live on March 14, 2010. I had absolutely NO idea what I was doing. My second post featured two sentences and a photo lifted from Cook’s Illustrated (which has since been updated)…thank goodness not a soul was reading. For the next few months, I snapped  photos with my flash and the steadiest hands I could muster, and started sharing my favorite recipes. Who knew this little venture would be the source of so much joy and satisfaction as well as lasting friendships? Through French Fridays with Dorie, Tuesdays with Dorie, Daring Bakers, Foodbuzz, The Secret Recipe Club, two Improv Challenges, Sunday Supper, Twelve Loaves and Chocolate Party, I’ve met the nicest folks from across the globe. I want to thank each and every one of you who visits my little ol’ blog whether daily or just a couple times a year. THANK YOU!!! I’m happy to be celebrating another Blog Anniversary!

For those of you who may have missed these, here  are a few of my most popular and personal favorite posts over the past year:

Mascarpone Filled Strawberries~

Roasted Red Pepper and Artichoke Tapenade~
