    As someone who visits your site regularly and never comments (yes, I’m guilty!),I could not pass up this opportunity to congratulate you. I visit many food blogs for recipe ideas, and I must say you are one of the most hardworking bloggers around, with recipes for the novice to the hard core baker. Keep up the excellent work, Nicole.

    Congrats on this great news! I’ve been reading your blog for a couple years now although I’m really bad at commenting (sorry!), but wanted to take the opportunity to congratulate you. What wonderful news, although I’m not surprised, your blog is fun to read and love all your recipes. I emailed you a couple years ago about advice on starting a food blog (I still haven’t as I just got busy with work and my business etc) and you wrote me back and gave me a little advice…thanks again so much, it’s still a pipe dream and I may get around to starting one sooner or later.

    I look forward to reading more of your delicious creations, thanks for putting together such a great and fun-to-read blog!!!
