Today is the 5th Anniversary of my blog!

December 31, 2014

By Kath Dedon


Today is the 5th Anniversary of my blog! even sent me anniversary greetings! I made public note of my 1st anniversary in 2010 because I was actually kind of amazed that I had kept at it for a full year. And now, here I am on the 5th anniversary. It’s been a fun ride! Looking at my stats, the most popular recipe today is Smoked Sausage and Black-Eyed Peas. I guess everyone needs their good luck black-eyed peas. I know I’m making this great recipe for New Year’s Day tomorrow. As good as it is, it didn’t make the top five of the year. a

I still have a few recipes from 2014 that I will be posting soon – a fabulous Italian Pork Ragu that’s perfect for entertaining, a slow cooker recipe for Polenta that is so easy, and a tasty blueberry muffin that is wheat-(and gluten-)free. And, I’m excited to explore some new cookbooks that I received. (Bob declared that this Christmas was the year of the cookbook. Not that he is complaining.) I’ve already started sticky-noting the recipes I want to try.


Cookbooks 2014


And Byron chose a wonderful cookbook for me, Sharon Kramis’ & Julie Kramis Hearne’s The Dutch Oven Cookbook. However, it’s one that I like so much that it’s a book that I already own. I’m thinking of exchanging it for Cooking Light’s Global Kitchen. I checked this one out from the library and I’m pretty sure I need to add it to my collection.


See all those blue sticky notes marking interesting recipes in this library book?

So I’ll be busy in the kitchen in 2015. Because I do like to eat well! And I’ll continue to share the good stuff on this blog. So stay tuned. Happy New Year! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit In the kitchen with Kath. I appreciate each and every one of you. I hope you’ll be sharing many happy meals with family and friends in 2015!
