So the last 2 years my blog-a-versary has completely slipped past me, but for some reason this year I managed to remember that April was the month I started this blog, 3 years ago. Back then we were living in a 1 bedroom apartment outside D.C., storing our Kitchen Aid mixer on top of the fridge because we were so short on space (we are lucky it never fell on us.) I had never successfully baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies, and we probably had about 10 meals in our rotation. Now it is rare that we make the same meal more than once in a month (other than frozen pizza, which we still love but have upped our standards a bit in that department at least!)
So it is time to commemorate 3 years of food blogging and to do so we are having our very first giveaway to recognize those that have subscribed from day one, to those that stumbled upon us through a random internet search. According to Google Reader this blog has 371 subscribers, which isn’t too shabby! I honestly have not a clue who most of those folks are, so this is a chance for you to come out of lurkdom and maybe even win a prize Just leave a comment on this post telling me what you are looking forward to cooking now that summer is just around the corner and you will be entered to win this lovely cookbook:
We bought it at the end of last summer and are so glad the weather has warmed up and we can dust off our grill again and try more recipes. This cookbook has yet to fail us and even if you aren’t a fan of grilling (or maybe you’re a vegetarian?) this would be a great Father’s Day gift or present for the grill-master in your life.
I will be randomly selecting a winner at 5pm CST on Friday, April 9, our three year blog-a-versary, so hurry up and enter to win!
and just for fun, here are the top 10 internet searches that have brought people I’ve never met to the blog:
