What do these most popular posts have in common?
The first 3 posts cover homemade comfort foods that are popular, but are not generally reproduced in the home kitchen.
The second to last post mentioned, and second to most popular one, showed you how to make something step-by-step that looks complicated, but is easy.
The last post mentioned, and most popular for the year 2008 was a contest where commenters could win something – namely being featured on my blog for naming a drink.
So, this gives me more ideas for next year. What I will come up with, I don’t know yet. But, I foresee many recipes with fresh, delicious, healthy and have a lot of the shade of red!
What attracts you to this blog? I’d love to know how to keep you coming back for more.
