I forgot to say this on New Year’s Day…

but it’s better late than never, right?

Thank you so much to all of you that have read my blog over the last year. I am humbled that so many of you come here to read my posts, and I am constantly encouraged by the kind emails and comments that come from you. I think I have the best readers in all of the blogosphere. Mwah!

And my goodness, isn’t blogging wonderful? I feel so blessed to have this medium that allows me to share with all of you from my (freecycled and painted) desk. (speaking of which, I don’t think I’ve ever shown you pictures of it. Hmm. Must remedy that.). I would never in a million years be brave enough to speak in front of all of you, and I don’t have enough time to write a book for all of you to read, but a blog? Yeah, I can totally do that.

So thanks for being here…you are an enormous part of what makes this blog fun and interesting, and I am grateful for you.

Hi Kristen. I have been reading your blog for about 2 months. I also have 4 kids and stay home, which you know doesn't mean you're necessarily always home. Thank you for the yogurt recipe. It turned out fab! I made it yesterday and we had it for breakfast today. My kids loved it too. I am constantly looking for ways to be more frugal. I recently started baking bread and am cutting down on breakfast cereals. I love to cook, especially different ethnic dishes and I really appreciate all your tips on cutting down the grocery bill and cutting food waste. I am inspired by you to become more organized and always have a menu for the week. Thanks!

Thank *you* for making every day a little more interesting and informative. And gentle: I often go back to certain of your posts, to try to learn how you effectively share tips without implying that everyone should do it your way.

Hi Kristen,

I love, Love, LOVE your blog! I think I've been reading your blog for close to a year now and I'm always inspired by your posts, especially those with photographs ;). I'm no longer a goodwill snob and I enjoy cooking from scratch more and more. However, I do have one question - Is it possible to make any of your yeast breads without having the lovely, coveted, beautiful Kitchen Aid mixer? I don't even own a whisk, much less a mixer - is it still possible to make the yeast breads without?
