Four!

Cook (almost) Anything turns 4 and gets a new look!

4th Blogiversary© by Haalo

These unbaked cookies are quite symbolic - I've overshot my blogiversary by a few days by the scrouge known as real life. It manages to get in the way of even your best laid plans.

I haven't quite finished with the tinkering to the site, that will come in a day or two, work load permitting.

I know there are all these silent people that visit this site, perhaps for this belated blogiversary you might like to just pop in and say hi - after all I've been doing most of the talking for the last 4 years I'd be most interested to hear what you have to say.

Thanks again for your continued visits - I do appreciate the many lovely emails and comments that you are kind enough to send me and I hope to continue on in the years to come.

  4. Popping in to de-lurk and say hi! While I don't really comment (I don't cook enough to have anything more cogent than "wow, looks delicious" to say, I adore your photography. I read mostly for the amazing photography of incredible looking food. I'm usually WAY too lazy to actually *use* any of the recipes (also, half a world away so not usually in the same season) but I adore them from afar and covet them quietly... Maybe someday I'll find someone willing to actually make them! ;)

  13. Congratulations on four years! I am yet another lurker of this site for at least a year or more.. (of those four) I hope this makes up for all the times I could have said "That looks delicious!" or "Nice Photos!"

    I keep coming back here because of the interesting ways in which you pair ingredients beyond the realm of classic cooking, and I must say I've been inspired by your innovation in my own cooking!

  19. Hey Halo I've been following for many years, tho mostly silently... I must say I did love your signature photo of that beautiful Beurre Bosc so shall miss that. Also, the new format only shows 1 post at a time - I preferred seeing many at a time to having to click 'Older Posts' to move back. IMHO, it is easier to pull the page down and see what catches the eye than having to click for another entry - tho I guess that means one has to stop and read each page! Whatever you decide after tweaks, I will still be here!!

  20. Thanks Brii and Trish!

    Thanks Deb - the one post was a leftover from the switch, it is back to normal. The pear still exists as the spacer between posts it's never too far away.
