I was seeing a lot of blogs that I follow coming out with kind of a synopsis of the year of blogging. Some were talking about their most popular blogs and others were talking about recipe fails. I don’t really pay too much attention to the recipe fails and I certainly don’t write about them. I think most of my fails are cooking something too long aka burning whatever meat I am grilling or probably a broken egg yolk or something to do with an egg.
I started looking at the stats on my blog, and I will admit I never look at them. I write this weekly food blog out of the love of writing and sharing something yummy we had with you plus this is a great way to keep track of my recipes. I will brag a little that the numbers I saw were pretty awesome and surprised me. In 2020 I had over 7,600 views and then in 2021 there were over 13,300 views I love that my words and recipes are seen all over the world. Thanks to all who viewed and those that liked or commented I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.
My wish for you all you out there is a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year! I think we all need a lift up!
This recipe was a combination of having apples to use up and watching the Food Network yesterday morning and seeing a Dutch Baby being made. My daughter got to work and made us breakfast!
