10 Most Popular Posts of the First Year

I will be back in the states in a couple of days, but while I am away, Adventures in Garden Cooking is marking its first anniversary (or is it birthday?)  I can’t believe the blog is a year old, I still feel very new at it.  I hope my posts and recipes have been of use to you; that is why I drive my family nuts saying, “Wait, don’t eat! I need to take a picture!”  They have gotten used to my keeping a camera in the kitchen and frantically snapping shots while trying not to burn whatever it is I am taking pictures of.  At least they no longer laugh when they walk into the room.

I had a wonderful moment recently was when I was editing a post. Cam, the 4 year old, looked at the picture and said, “That looks delicious!”  I like that our work together on the blog is helping to create a love of food and cooking in him.  I am hoping to have more Cammy’s Cooking Adventures this summer as we harvest from the garden.

Before I started writing this I looked at the stats from the blog and there are some definite trends….people read my recipes for basic foods, such as sun-dried tomatoes and pickled peppers, recipes with interesting combinations, and my recipes for Persian foods.  The blog has been read all around the world, by people in 70 countries, that is more than 1/3 of the countries in the world! That just blows my mind!

So, the top 10 posts of YEAR 1 were:

#10 Green Bean Pulau (Persian Rice Pilaf)
