Exactly a year ago today, I sent out my first blog post! I can’t believe it’s been that long already! I have loved sharing all of my favorite things with you. It is so much fun getting an email or hearing from someone that has tried something from my blog. I think I’ve really made it big time, now that I have my own branded cutting board…thanks MOM ;)
Most Viewed Post: Foil-Baked Tilapia with Vegetables – You can’t go wrong with this recipe when trying to make a quick and insanely healthy dinner.
2nd Most Viewed Post: Balsamic Brussels Sprouts – I know brussels sprouts are the quintessential vegetable to hate, but I would be happy to have these for dinner every night.
Most Pinned on Pinterest: Pretzel Necklaces – We had SO much fun wearing these at Beer Fest.
Most Made: Bruschetta Lentil Dip – It’s speculation, but I think I get the most feedback from friends and co-workers that they have made this dip…several times! It’s easily one of my favorite recipes on my blog.
Post with the Most Comments: Apple Brickle Dip – I dare you to make this and not eat 3 spoonfuls right away.
Most Indulgent Recipe on this Blog: Mocha Chocolate Ice Box Cake – If you walk away from this blog making one thing, please try this cake. Words cannot describe. My fantasy world involves a piece of this cake with every meal.
My Favorite Post: Recruitment Video for Nestle – I loved getting to make this video about working at Nestle with one of my co-workers and best friends, Brian “Jimmy” Schoo.
I currently have 74 email subscribers. Thank you to each of you for signing up to hear what I have to say! I truly appreciate it, especially since at this point, I haven’t yet figured out how to convince my brother to subscribe! I guess Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding and Spiral Hair Pins aren’t his thing. Weird….
My first post shared this quote: “An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break. May you be open to each thread that comes into your life – the golden ones and the coarse ones – and may you weave them into a brilliant and beautiful life.” I started this blog to be able to send out “threads” of ideas to friends and family far and wide. “My Favorite Things” has now been viewed in 65 different countries, which blows my mind! I hope to continue to share my favorite things with you, regardless of what city you live in, or what city I live in, and that we all stay connected! Thanks for your interest and support!
