Thanks to all of you for your kind comments on my new blog format. I wanted a new look to celebrate my one-year blogging anniversary. The actual anniversary was July 8, but hopefully it’s not too late to celebrate by sharing some of my favourite posts of the past year.
The post that had the most comments was Raspberry Buttermilk Cake. Maybe that’s because I gushed about it so much. It’s incredibly simple, but definitely my favourite cake recipe. If you love desserts where the fruit is the star, give it a try!
My most popular travel post was La Pedrera, Antoni Gaudi’s wonderful masterpiece in Barcelona. It had over 500 page views, more than double any other post. Maybe a lot of you are traveling to Spain this summer; if so, I promise you’ll love this amazing building.
The posts I had the most fun writing were The Top Ten Reasons, The Alcazar (the words aren’t mine, but the inspiration is), and any of this month’s recipes inspired by musicals.
And, at risk of sounding like I peaked early, my favourite recipe is still the first one I posted, my Grandma Baker’s ginger cookies (pictured at the top of this post). Try them – I promise you’ll love them.
Most of all, I’ve enjoyed becoming part of the blogging community and getting to know some of my fellow bloggers. Whether you follow me through Facebook or Twitter, through your own blog, or by checking in every couple of weeks to see what’s new, it really means a lot to me when you read my words. You’re the best audience any blogger could ask for!
