A Seat at the Table celebrates 2 years of blogging!

2 year blogiversary (A Seat at the Table)

Two years ago I finally got up the gumption to start a food blog…332 recipes later, and I’m still going!  This has been a busy year for A Seat at the Table…the blog got a makeover as I switched from wordpress.com to my own domain, my kitchen got a facelift, I started taking classes to become a register dietitian… In this next year I hope to work on my food photography, I’d like to start incorporating more of what I’m learning in my nutrition classes, and I’ll hopefully continue to improve the site as I learn new things about web design.

Thank you for reading, sharing and trying my recipes!  It’s fun sharing my finds, and I hope these recipes inspire you to create your own culinary adventures.  I hope you’ll stick with me as I continue on this food-blogging-life journey!

Here are some of my favorite recipes from this past year, but be sure to check out last year’s recap and my seasonal favorites too (summer, fall and winter)!2 year blogiversary (A Seat at the Table)
