Playing with the Big Boys (My All-time Top 10)

When I started this blog I had no idea what I was doing.  Shoot, I didn't even know about the whole blog world out there...  I just learned a couple of new recipes and wanted a way to share with my friends and family.  There were no desires of 'making it big', no plans to 'be a blogger', none of that.  Just a desire to learn to cook and share that experience with those near and dear to me.

And then my eyes were opened.  Comments started coming in and friendships were formed and photography skills were grown.  From where I started with my first post to all the way to today, a lot has changed.  Now I know how to cook (more or less), can take pretty good pictures (most of the time), and am quite aware that a community exists in Blogland.  And this week I hit my mark of what would define me as "a real blogger".  I hit 100,000 pageviews!  WOW!  I said a long time ago that THAT would be my moment of realization that I am a part of this blogging world, and now I am here.

Really, though, things have remained the same -- my goal is not to be a famous blogger or even get the most pageviews/etc., but to have a place to share my cooking and life experiences with friends and family.  It's just today that circle has widened, because now it includes YOU!

To celebrate, I went back and found my personal Top 10.  If I could direct you to just 10 recipes on my blog, these would be it, but of course, I hope you check out more :)  Enjoy!
