I have been pleasantly surprised by how many of you have visited my blog in this the first year. Thankyou for your support and encouraging comments, and I look forward to taking you with me on more culinary adventures in 2013.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,100 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.
