2008 in Review

Let’s take a little trip down memory lane, shall we?  I started my blog in January of 2008, and though I haven’t posted quite as frequently as I would have liked, I tried lots of new and fabulous recipes, gained many new readers, and found lots of new blogs and more recipes as a result!  I’m closing in on my 100th post…My goals for this blog in 2009 include more frequent posts, better and more(!) photos, more original recipes, giveaways and contests, a possible site makeover, roundups of my favorite posts from other blogs, and printer-friendly recipes.  If I can get all that done, it will be a great 2009 here at The Picky Apple, don’t you think?!

Here are a few of your favorite posts from 2008.  I was intrigued by what y’all found most interesting….not necessarily the things I liked best!  These posts were visited most frequently, according to Google Analytics:

Apple Fritters

Beer Bread

Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes

Here are my favorite things from 2008… was tough narrowing it down!
