4 years of blogging & Petit Fours (30 by 30)

4 years and 855 posts... Happy Blogiversary to me!

A lot has happened in 4 years. When I started this blog I was living in Germany with a newborn and a 3 year old and my husband was deployed. I am now in El Paso with a 7 year old and a 4 year old and we are getting ready to move once again (to HAWAII!!!!!). My posting has changed over the years, too. When I first started blogging I would post daily. Then we moved to El Paso and the blog took a back burner for a while... only a few posts a month. This back and forth has continued and I am back to posting not so often. I am definitely still cooking and baking but after 855 posts I am not always making new foods.

I have had so much fun with this blog. It has been a great outlet for me and I have "met" some fabulous people. I love having a place where I have all my recipes and I've even turned it into a book (well... 2 books so far!). I don't plan on stopping any time soon... we'll see where this blog takes me! Who knows when a daily posting will come back or if it will just be a post here and there. Either way I will be baking and cooking and enjoying life!

Thanks to my readers who have been here from the beginning and thank you to the new readers who are still discovering my blog. I appreciate you stopping by and love hearing from you!

And to celebrate my blogiversary I made some cute Petit Fours! They are from my 30 by 30 list and are so yummy! I won't post a recipe but there are hundreds out there. Pretty basic stuff, though. Take cake (regular or pound cake), cut it into squares, layer with jam, and top with ganache or poured fondant. Easy peasy and delicious!

855 posts is very impressive, happy blogiversary!! I feel much like you do...I'm baking and cooking all the time...just not experimenting. I enjoy your blog very much. I'd love to hear how you turned your posts into a cookbook.

Coleen, I used blurb.com to convert my blog into book! :)

Have enjoyed your blog for years. My son has been working in El paso with the border patrol. He just joined ranks with the DEA and is now located in Vegas. I have two kids in Vegas. That means I can hop on a cheap flight to Vegas and see 6 darling grandchildren in just about an hour. I'm blessed.
Enjoy your new adventure in Hawaii. I want to live there--or at least visit for a long while.
