Nearly ever blogger has written some sort of “Top Ten” review or “Best Of” post in the last week. Rightfully so, it is a new year. Reflecting is always emotional, oftentimes difficult, and makes me hungry!
While finishing off the ham salad spread from New Years Eve I was thinking about my food blog. I haven't posted a thing since Christmas. Which brought about what my nephew said to me during our Christmas Celebration. He thought it was crazy and strange that I took photos of the food I prepared. He was right it is kinda crazy. Why even continue with this food blogging stuff, I thought. Of course, after a moment I answered myself almost out loud, it's an age thing I guess.
Friends, I have lots of blog friends. Food, I love to cook, eat, and experiment with new foods and spices, especially the ones with heat. Photos, well they need help but I love photography. The family likes my blogging, they reap the rewards of new recipes... well sometimes they reap the failures too but who's counting right.
Comments, awesome recipes, kind words, and great advice are what inspire me to continue food blogging! Realizing my little portion of the food blogging community would be non-existent with out my blogging friends, I thought it would be cool to start 2011 by sharing your Top Ten, Best Of, or New Year posts!
Incredible we are almost in a New Year! Hope your Goals for this 2011 will be fulfilled with Health, Happiness and Peace! :) I'm working on several goals also including this blog, and I expect to put... This is a content summary only! The full article is available at the blog.

...year for 2010. The amazing facts about these top posts is that four are sweets and desserts of some kind, two are casserole type dishes, one is an appetizer, one is a canned sauce, one is a sandwich, and one is an entrée. Not surprising that 40% of the top posts are dessert/sweets recipes, these seem to attract the most attention. So withou...
