Never Thought It Would Be So Good!

During the past week, I noticed this blog has hit the 3,000 mark.  I thought it would be a good time to express my thanks to all those who follow this blog.  When I began it last December, I simply thought it would just be a way to convey some of my favorite recipes, tricks, and stories to my family and friends. It was to be an outlet for a passion I have had for many years.  

Who would have ever guessed this small little blog would go WORLDWIDE.  The internet is a great thing.  Allowing us to share information with people that would normally never see it because of logistics.  Periodically, I  review the statistics for the visits.  Services that track website usage are there to allow the owners of sites to monitor where visitors are from, the day and time they visit, and how long they stay on the site. 

I thought since the site has gone worldwide, I would share some of the places that visitors have clicked in from.  Who would have every thought a guy who moved from Chicago to a small town in Wisconsin would have so many international visitors.  The list below is just a portion of the countries.

        Philippines          Canada           
        Spain                  Chile             
        United Emirates   Italy
        Russia                 Sweden          
        Netherlands         Finland          
        Canada                Ukraine
        France                 Mexico                
        Australia              India
        Turkey                Malaysia
        United Emirates

At this point, I would like to thank all of those people who have been regular visitors and those that have referred my blog to their friends and family.  You all have made writing this blog worthwhile.  I have a renewed energy and will be going back to regular daily postings.  If I can help one person share my passion for food, I have done my job!   

My only request to you all, loyal viewers, is to pass along your comments and feedback.  It is with this feedback that I can make this site better.  If there is anything you would like to see or read about, feel free to drop me a line and I will be happy to do my best to help.  I have heard from people that leaving comments can be a bit cumbersome if you do not have a gmail account.  Without a gmail account, simply post the comment as Anonymous, you will not need to enter an email address.  Then just end the comment with your first name.  

Thanks, again, to each and every one of you!  I plan to continue bring you great recipes.  And remember, I will never pass along a recipe that has not been tested and will include a picture for each and every dish.
