Thanksgiving Top Ten

This post actually isn't going to be the top ten things I'm thankful for.  That would turn into a top 150 list and it would be annoyingly long and annoying.

Instead, this post is the top ten most viewed posts on Skillful Cook in the last year!

Which, I guess, actually leads me to talk about something I'm thankful for.

I'm really.really.thankful. that you read my blog!  Or even just scan through the pictures.  Seriously.  I wish I could serve you cookies and milk through the computer screen every time you visited, commented, sent me a message, and made me feel like a rockstar just for making something yummy.

Blogging is fun because of the interactions that I get to have with other people, and those other people are you!   Thanks for keeping it fun for me and helping Skillful Cook grow leaps and bounds in this last year.


Of course, it would be slightly inappropriate if I didn't mention the teeny tiny fact that I'm so very thankful for my hilarious (in a good way) husband, my future pug, my crazy family in the picture above, my job, my health, and spiritual grace, hope, and healing.  Really, truly.  I'm so abundantly blessed. “Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens.”  James 1:17.  Thank you, Lord!

Now, let's eat!  The Top Ten Skillful Cook recipes for this year are:

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving!
