Chew on That’s Year in Review

It was officially one year ago today that Chew on That published its first post and launched itself into the blogosphere. Yes, today is Chew on That’s 1st Birthday and we are thrilled! We have a number of exciting ways to celebrate, including a special video and a birthday cake recipe.To kick off our birthday festivities, we wanted to treat you to a little flashback. We have been fortunate enough to acquire a regular stream of new readers over the past year and some of the newbies may have missed our older posts. We’d love for you to delve into the archives and read every post from the last year, but we understand that you may have other things to do today.

In the interest of time, we’ve created a Year in Review for Chew on That with the most popular posts, best recipes and all-around favorite topics from throughout our first year of bloglife. Was there a post that you loved that isn’t on the list? Add it in comments and recommend it to others.

Saturday Morning Rituals
Conveniently – and scarily like a planned-out sitcom – my best friend’s boyfriend lives less than two blocks from my boyfriend’s apartment. This was not some conniving girl-plot to be BFF forever, it just worked out that way. It makes cab rides easy (and cheaper) and it’s always nice to know they’re close. But the best part about having them within spitting distance is that every Saturday morning they wake up hungry – and so do I.

You gotta love the Internet. It has horrified me, entertained me, and sometimes…inspired me. This is one of those times. After watching a particularly good episode of my favorite (now ended) video blog The Show With ZeFrank, I knew my life would never be satisfying until I followed the instructions he gave me.

Work of Art(ichoke)
Please forgive the painfully obvious pun in the title – I just couldn’t help myself! But to my own credit, last night’s dinner truly was a work of art. I’ve been eyeing gorgeous blossoms of artichokes all summer, but I haven’t had the time or courage to buy them… until yesterday!

On Meeting Alice Waters
Alice Waters is truly an inspiration. I had the pleasure of meeting her yesterday at the Prairie Grass Cafe, an event for the release of her new book entitled The Art of Simple Food. While I knew how inspiring she was before meeting her, my impressions were only solidified upon speaking to her in real life.

My Love-Hate Relationship with Giada
Giada De Laurentiis perplexes me. I have a feeling that if we went to high school together or had pledged the same sorority in college, we would have gotten along and could’ve hung out in big groups, but we never would have been bosom buddies. Get it? Bosom buddies? Because she always shows her cleavage?? I crack myself up. Click here to get the recipe for Tri Colore Orzo and read the contentious comments readers had about Giada.
