My 100th Post

WOW! I can't believe that this is my 100th post! I have been having such a blast with this blog! It started out as a fun little challenge and I never really expected for anyone other than close friends and family to read it. It makes me so happy to know that not only do my friends and family enjoy it but other bloggers enjoy it as well!

I was awarded two blog awards recently and wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you! Priscilla of Priscilla's Baking Adventures gave me the "E for Excellent" award and Honey B of The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch gave me the "Kreativ Blogger" award. Thank you both so much! It made my day to see these awards and I am really glad to know that you both enjoy my blog!

I have been debating for a few weeks now about what to post for my hundreth. Nothing seemed good enough. So, I have decided that nothing would be great! So, no recipe today. Just a little thank you to everyone who has read over the last 3 months and I hope you will continue to read! I appreciate and read all the comments that are left.

Now of course I couldn't just do NOTHING for my 100th post. A list called "The Omnivore's 100" has been making the rounds on the food blogs. It is a list of 100 things every omnivore should try in their lifetime. Cakespy did a spin-off; a sweet 100. I have an incredibly large sweet tooth, so I decided that it would be fitting to post the Sweet 100 for my 100th post. The foods in red are ones that I have already tried. The others are now on my to-do list! So... look for some of those to be popping up on the blog sometime in the future! Join in on the fun, too! If you don't want to post it on your blog, leave a comment here and let me know how many you have tried (if you don't know what some are, Cakespy has links to descriptions)! I'm at 37. Not great, but a good starting point!

Without further adieu, here is the list. Oh, and tomorrow kicks off Nutella week - something I have been wanting to do for the past month or so! Join me as I blog about my favorite sweet treat, Nutella!

Awesome list! That should keep you busy for awhile...LOL I was thinking it would be a fun challenge...but as I was reading through the list I came across Moon Cake...then Moon Pie...and thought they were the same thing...LOL and I wondered about some of the things I couldn't pronounce...But then I got to #87 and that was a deal breaker. No mincemeat pie for me thanks....LOL

I love reading your blog. Occasionally I try some of the recipes too. Keep it up and can't wait to celebrate 1000 posts w/ ya :D

~Valerie said...

OOPS Mincemeat is #72....I remembered #87 because I just got to try homemade marshmallows for the 1st time last week. They were yummy. Much better than store bought.
