what a great idea for an anniversary post. and how did i miss the Target bashing now neatly filed under "stupid kitchen appliances" the first time around? thank goodness for indices. (a common sentiment, with me) . . .

ok, new business, now that rebecca's introduced herself, are you reading her family blog "eat" haverchuk? it's got men cooking . . .

to many more meals and good times.

mazl-tov and best wishes for many more. Wonderful work!
I see that at some point you parted with your subtitle. Is there a story about that?

Thank you all.

Rebecca, I have been a happy lurker at Eat for a couple of weeks.

Kat, I don't miss the library carrel. Glad to hear you're still reading.

zp, I join you in that toast. Mine is a bourbon, neat.

Chocolate Lady, your encouragement means lots. As for the old subtitle ("a little bit kosher, mostly treyf"), I felt it was time for a new one so I got rid of it as a way to prod myself to come up with something. I liked the old one but I thought my blog wasn't kosher enough to advertise it as even "a little bit kosher." Also (I don't need to tell you) something is either kosher or it isn't; it seemed a bit dishonest of me to claim what's not rightly mine. On the downside, I kind of liked how the old subtitle screamed "Look at me I'm Jewish!"
