When did you start blogging? LOL I had to look it up! Late April 2013 – so I’m coming up on my first blogiversary the 28th!
What’s your favorite thing you have published? I think my favorite thing is the Florida Lobster Gratin published last week. For a couple reasons …first, my mom was visiting and I don’t get to see her often so it will always tied in my memory with her. Second, this was a splurge meal after my first Olympic distance triathlon. I talk about that in the post, so unlike most of my posts, this one wasn’t just about the food. And third, it had lobster. That last one is kinda self-explanatory.
My biggest flop was my first attempt to make a new cheesecake. It was an epic cheesecake fail. Once I had the batter made, only then did I remember that I had thrown away my springform pan in a fit of rage years ago. Not wanting to waste, I used a cakepan. I also didn’t let the ingredients come to room temp and I cooked the crap out of it. It was ugly. Luckily, I tried again and the result was my Kahlua Toffee Cheesecake with Turbinado Caramel.
