Happy One Year Blogaversary To Me!


One year ago today I decided to jump fully into the food blogging world with my recipe for Sushi Veggie Rolls. I had been posting recipes on my other blog for a long time, but I wanted to have a blog that was solely centered on food and food related topics and thus Dianne's Dishes was born. Now some 18,000+ visitors later I'm still having a ball doing exactly what I love to do...Coming up with new recipes using fresh ingredients, real ingredients, whole ingredients, all while sharing my kitchen with my increasingly helpful little sous chef (aka Alexis).

Some of you have been with me since the beginning, while some of you have joined me along the way, but all of you have played an important part in making Dianne's Dishes the foodiverse that it is today. For this I am thankful and I'm so happy that you're here!

One of the most enjoyable things that has come from the blog that amazes me to no end, other than having fun in the kitchen of course, is that you dear readers hail from all corners of the globe. I've got regular readers from Brazil, Argentina, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Australia, of course many states here in the United States, other countries and even Ireland, which warms my heart to no end given I feel an affinity with the Emerald Isle I can't even begin to explain to you!

But I digress....Where was I again? Oh yes...There are other readers too and I don't mean to forget any of you, those are just the ones I remember off the top of my head and you all are important! Some of my readers I know in the real world either as a friend or family or both, several more I know simply through this wide world we call the Internet, which is charming in and of itself (remind me sometime to tell you the story of how Jamison and I met more than ten years ago right here in the lovely land of webdom!), while even more I do not know, but each of you has a special place in my heart! I am thankful that you have made Dianne's Dishes one of your daily blog reads. If you're out there lurking and have never commented before, feel free to chime in this next year, the more the merrier!

So sit back, relax and I hope you'll keep coming back for more. Here's to you and many more years to come!

Hi Dianne,

One of our readers nominated you for our Death by Chocolate contest today. I can not find an email for you on your site (maybe I am just too tired today ;)). Could you contact me via my mail given to let me know if you want to participate and I can send you some more info...

P.S. What a nice B-day gift!
