Nine Years


Nine years ago I wrote this and my life changed. Thank you all for continuing to make this blog a place where I can share recipes, tell emotional stories, make cartoons about trips to fancy restaurants, write songs, reenact the fall of Saigon from “Miss Saigon” with eggs in my microwave and procure advice about where to eat when I travel. Without you there to cheer me on, I’m not sure how far I would’ve gotten. So thanks for making these nine years so much fun…you’ve allowed me to support myself doing something that I love. This is your celebration too.

My Pinterest Page

Have you ever wanted to see all of my recipe archives laid out for you visually? Click here and check out my new Pinterest page. All my big recipe categories are there–breakfast, desserts, pasta and risotto–plus I made a page of my Most Popular Recipes of All Time. If you create a Pinterest account, you can invite your friends and pin your favorite recipes to your bulletin board; and I’ll continue to update my page as I continue to update my blog. Have fun browsing!

7 Years


It’s been seven years exactly since I wrote my very first post on this blog. Usually, when an anniversary comes along, I use the opportunity to share my favorite posts from the archives. But this time I’d like to turn the tables…I’d like to learn all about you nice people who read this blog everyday. So, in the comments, tell me: What’s your name? Where are you from? What did you have for breakfast? How long have you been reading The A.G.? Do you remember how you found it? What’s been your favorite post? What’s something you’d like me to blog about over the next seven years?

Thanks for being such loyal, dedicated readers. If it weren’t for your reading/commenting, I wouldn’t have made it this far. Here’s to another seven!
