Happy 1st Blogiversary.... to me!



    Today marks the 1st year anniversary of starting my food blog. I can't believe it's been a year! It flew by so fast. It feels like yesterday my little sis Lindsey was telling me I needed to start one, and here I am 130 recipes later. I enjoy being a food blogger so much. I have met so many foodie friends along the way, that are so sweet and inspire me everyday. I thought the only people that would ever read this blog would be my sisters and a few close friends. I never dreamed I'd have over 1,300 Facebook Fans and 400 Google Followers in just a year! I am so honored! 

    I have recieved so many kind emails, and sweet comments from readers. It makes my day when someone takes the time to let me know what they thought of a recipe, or to tell me that I've inspired them to start cooking. It's actually shocking, and so very flattering! I want to Thank You all so much for your support. With 3 kiddos, and a fulltime job, sometimes blogging can be hard to keep up on. When I feel I dont have time for it anymore, you all encourage me to keep going!

   To celebrate my blogiversary, I thought I would share with you the TOP 10 Recipes over the last year. These recipes are the ones that have been viewed the most, I've recieved the most emails on, and have been pinned all over Pinterest. Just click on the recipe title, not the picture, to view the recipes!





























































                              Thank You again, for all your love and support!  , Holly

Well I sure enjoy your Blog. I get comments all the time because regulars on my blog see your feed on my 'followed' list. Plus the bonus for me is the StG references, I miss that place.

Keep on Cookin'
