Thanks to all of you, giving me a reason to keep blogging, this blog has made it through 2 years and 350 posts!

To celebrate, I’m giving away a $50 Penzey’s gift certificate, which you can use either in store, on the phone, or online. And since Penzey’s ships internationally (at a dear price, I’m sure), this is open to everyone. 🙂

To enter, just leave a comment on this post, and on November 1st, I’ll pick a winner randomly. One entry per person, please. Once again, thank you so much. Your comments and support and emails have meant the world to me.

UPDATE: I had my husband use a random number generator, and it picked Katie of Javagirlkt’s Cookin’ as the lucky winner of the Penzey’s gift certificate! Congratulations! And thank you, everyone, for your kind words.

    Congrats on 2 years! I’ve only been blogging a little over a year but I can’t believe it’s even been that long, I’m sure it seems like only a short time ago that you started yours, how time flies!

    Ooohhh! Penzey’s. I really miss living near one. Mail-order is great but it’s not quite the same as smelling the herbs and spices and looking over the little recipe cards placed strategically nearby.

    I swear by their various cinnamons.

    And thanks for offering me a ride at the market. That was super cool of you guys.

    Happy Blog Birthday Becke!!

    Thanks for all your support at Breadchick.com in the past and looking forward to blogging with you for the next year. I always enjoy coming here and reading about the restaurants in Columbus. If business ever takes me to that part of the world, I know I can find a good place to eat.

    Happy Blogaversary! 350 posts in 2 years is a lot of commitment and a lot of fun stuff to read. Here’s to many more years of posting (for you) and reading (for me)!

    Stumbling upon your blog a few months ago was a turning point for me. I don’t really enjoy cooking but have found the need to cook more meals from scratch to stretch our budget. Your website has made me WANT to cook and I enjoy each and every new discovery. Yum!! Thanks and keep them coming.

    Congratulations, I just discovered your website after linking from one food blog website to another. Your recipes sound so good and the pictures are great too! I’m getting hungry just looking at em, I’m fasting today, 4 more hours to go till sunset 🙂

    Long time lurker but first time poster! Discovered your blog last year– my first in Columbus– after getting so, so tired of on-campus food and desperately seeking a nice place to take my now-boyfriend. Your reviews have never led me astray, I absolutely adore your recipes, and think you and Lisa (and CMH Gourmand and any other number of CBus bloggers) are doing great things for Columbus and sustainability.

    Congrats on two years!

    Congrats and happy blog birthday! Your blog is comfort and inspiration to me as I long to live in Columbus. Right now we’re stuck in southwest Florida, and though the winters are dreamy, the summers are rough and we miss the beautiful seasons of the midwest. Here’s to many more blog years!

    Congrats on your anniversary!

    As a Canadian who’s moving to Columbus, I live vicariously through your posts. Thanks to you, I’m more than adequately prepared for my new home’s culinary scene!
