A look at 2011

In a  year my blog has grown so much, more than I thought it would have. I first stated the blog as a place that I could post some of my favorite recipes to share with a few family members. Eventually I decided I wanted to share my blog with everyone and got serious about spreading the work. I discovered link parties, blog hops, and pinterest. Now, I have over 70 followers. I know it could be more, but you 70 followers are more than I could have hoped for.

My very first post of the year was originally found on my old blog Erin's Cook Book Journey

Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu

In March I decided I wanted to make this a food AND crochet blog (and other random crafts too). So I started from scratch.   I gave my blog a complete makeover, a url change, and a new name.Actually, I started a new blog. I kept the old one around so I still had control of the url so someone couldn't use it for spamming and redirected it here. Anyways, A Crafty Cook was born. I got serious and started to post twice a week on a consistent basis.  When, football season hit that turned into 3 times a week. I've loved every minute of it.

Now on to the the best of the year

It's been a great year and I look for to another amazing year of cooking, crocheting and crafting with you!

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
