To Give Thanks November 2008



  1. Great numbers, Mike! It’s odd, but even though I haven’t had time to write much over the past year, my blog is still gets a surprising amount of traffic. Google searches for recipes I’ve posted are clearly the most popular. Right now the entry I posted about boiled dinner–Cooking Up A Fall Classic–is smokin’ hot. Probably because it’s so cold outside. LOL However, the entry about “living lettuce” is the all-time winner. Go figure.

    Great job, Mike, and here’s to an even better 2011! 🙂
