National Chocolates Day

November 29th is National Chocolates Day! More importantly, (more important than chocolate?!), today marks my 100th post and, I’m sad to say, the end of this blog. A year ago I began this food adventure, culinarily challenged and ready to learn my way around the kitchen. One hundred recipes later I’m proud to say the microwave is no longer the most important appliance in my life (long live the hair straightener!) and I no longer shudder at the thought of a potluck. Looking back on the past year, it’s crazy to think about the amount of time I spent in the kitchen, discovering new favorite foods and completely butchering unsuspecting recipes. It’s a good thing this blog is ending just as I head off on my next overseas adventure, as I’m not sure what I’d do with all that extra time.. or those extra calories. I want to thank you all for being so supportive.. for the helping hands in the kitchen, the encouraging comments when I got it right, the persevering swallows (fake smiles attached) when I didn’t. Thank you Christine for following along from afar, and consistently commenting on every single holiday. Brian and I ended my yearlong adventure today by making chocolate truffles, dipping half of them in cocoa powder and the other half in red sprinkles. They’re delicious (is chocolate ever anything but?!) and a great way to end this yearlong adventure. One nation, filled with food holidays, celebrating, with flour and sugar for all. AMERICA!

  1. It has been my pleasure to follow along with you love. I am so very proud of you 🙂 more than words can say. I hope that maybe you’ll think of another blog (maybe less time consuming on your end) because I really did enjoy following your trials and triumphs. While we’re so physically far apart, every blog I read I could hear your voice and imagine your expressions and felt like we were together in the kitchen like our family dinner nights 🙂 I love you! Can’t wait for your next adventure!!!

  2. Congratulations, Angie, you did it! And you entertained us and you fed us (when we were lucky enough to be around) as you accomplished your goal. Such a good writer; such a good cook. What’s next for you? Can’t wait to see!

  3. No! No! Say it isn’t so! No more entries???!!!! I can’t begin to tell you how impressed I am that you’ve done this, and I’ve enjoyed it SO much. Thanks for sharing it with all of us!
