I would like to apologize for being MIA this week, but the truth be told the old chef was running on empty and really needed to unplug for a few days and just get a little rest! Of course, we still ate well, there just wasn’t the frantic set up to photograph dinner before we ate it! All in all, I managed to sleep in excess of 9 hours daily and actually got a few things done around the house. I’m still not too sure where this year has gone, it seemed to fly by much too quickly, I feel as though I had so much more I wanted to do….sigh
It has been a good year, though, there is no doubt about it! I seemed to have found my voice with the Ask Chef Dennis series (Thank you Toni!), I had my blog redone with a new design and a new home on WordPress (Thank you, Melissa!), and I was named the Most Valuable Foodie at the Foodbuzz Festival in San Francisco, and for that I need to thank each and every one of you, for your friendship and support, because without it, I would never have won that award! I would also like to thank Lisa for putting up with my crazy hours, strange meals, and eccentric behavior as I struggle to become a better food blogger and photographer, she really should have gotten an award for putting up with me….sigh (Thank you, Sweetheart).
As we move into 2012, I took a few minutes to think back over the year and went through my posts to try and find a few of my favorites. What I came up with was a baker’s dozen (how appropriate is that!). I hope you enjoy reminiscing with me, and if you see a dish you don’t remember just click on it and it will take you to the post!
