In Random on January 15, 2012 at am

Cooking with Alison was created two years ago, today!  A lot has happened in the past two years, including adopting my dog, Blue, and moving back to Toronto, ON (this very weekend actually).  To the surprise of everyone (myself included), I’ve maintained the momentum of recipe testing and writing.  I’d like to thank everyone for making my efforts worthwhile.  (See the one year anniversary stats and shout outs here.)  Hopefully I can keep up with the cooking and baking for a third year of Cooking with Alison!

Thank You to Island Vittles for thinking of me when she received the Stylish Blogger Award (see here) and for leaving comments on my site!

A personal thank you to my sister (and self-appointed Food Blog Manager), Krystal, who always makes me laugh, always appreciates my cooking no matter how bad or unhealthy it is, catches typos and broken links, and won’t give up on teaching me the proper use of “you and I” vs. “you and me”.  🙂

  1. Welcome back to Toronto. I’ve been a follower of your blog after doing a google search for a recipe, and I’m soooo thrilled to read up on someone’s love for food with my similar taste buds.

    I’m looking forward to reading more. Can’t wait to hear where you go to get your ingredients.

  2. Thanks so much for the link, Alison! Happy Anniversary, and best of luck in TO. The west coast will miss you…Theresa
