This year was different than the last several as cycling fell off our radar in early summer. This left time for fishing, backyard makeover, kayaking and just plain hangin' around. It was nice.
There were also trips to Chicago, Leavenworth/Seattle, Jenner, Bend and Laguna Beach (haven't shared those last two yet!). We didn't see our favorite place in the whole world, Montana, but hopefully we'll return in 2013.
We are blessed.
I was excited to be nominated to be one of the Top 25 Nor-Cal Mom's for 2012 over at Circle of Mom's and had two recipes featured there! I was also happy to work with California Farm to Table this year and have several recipes featured on their site > Philly Cream Peach Tart, Spicy Pumpkin Hummus, Homemade Garden Burgers,Salmon Cakes with Creamy Dill Sauce. I had another feature at a great little linky as well. I also entered my first cooking contest with Real Women of Philadelphia, and though I didn't win a new kitchen, my recipe was featured there too. I'm also happy to have been featured on my friend's great blog, The Tasty Alternative, not once, but twice (thanks Amber!). It has been a big year for this little blog.
Thank you to everyone who read, reads and continues to visit this little bloggy. It means more than you know.
Now here are your favorites of 2012!
