Your Favorite Recipe, In The Comments

We’re on the road today (heading back from Palm Springs) so instead of leaving you dry with no food blog post, I thought I’d turn the tables and ask YOU to share your favorite recipe in the comments. Try to think of the recipe that you love the most then type it up down below; I have a feeling all of you reading this have some good recipes up your sleeves. Just don’t link to another recipe online: if you can type it up (and even better, put it into your own words) this comment section will have real value. As for me, my favorite recipe remains Cavatappi with Sun-Dried Tomatoes. I just can’t get enough of it. Have a great weekend, everyone!

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!

Those of you who missed the deadline, worry not: the Amateur Gourmet photo pool is still open, so if you make the cake this week, upload your pictures there and I’ll see them. Actually, if you make anything you want to share with other Amateur Gourmet readers post it to the Flickr pool–we want to know what you’re cooking.
