Eat Up, Buttercup Turns One!

Eat Up, Buttercup turns a year old this week! I don’t actually know the exact day because WordPress did this weird thing where it backdated my first post to August 1. (I’ve never had that happen before or since, and I have NO idea what happened. So weird!) So I’ve just decided to celebrate during the last week of August, since that’s probably when I wrote the first post.


I was in a nostalgic mood last week and read through some of my old posts, and I was super proud of them! Of course I noticed all the grammatical mistakes I missed the first time around, but overall I’m still pretty happy with them. (This is a pretty big deal for me because I usually can’t read my old writing — too embarrassing!)  


Here are 5 of my favorite posts from the past year (if you’re interested, you can check out my favorite posts from 2014):


Apple Pie Two Ways


Apple Pie is probably one of my favorite things to bake, and I’m so excited for September because I’m going to make way too many pies! I’m excited to take my sweet and savory apple pie recipes out for a spin again.


Taco Platter (2)


My Cauliflower Tacos + Dragons Love Tacos collaboration with This Picture Book Life was so fun! Who knew cauliflower could work so well in Tex Mex?


Plot Inspiration


I talked about how I opted out of Game of Thrones (gasp!) in favor of writing the book I want to read instead. All of the political intrigue with none of the sexualized violence! Win/win!


Family home(s)


I wrote about my writing process back in April, and it’s so crazy to look back — I still call my chapters “blurbs,” but I’m on chapter 15 instead of chapter 4. Such a huge difference!


Food Blogger collage


I still turn to the blogs from my list of 10 Favorite Food Blogs for cooking and writing inspiration.


It’s so crazy to look back at how much has changed in the past year! I’ve gotten better at formatting blog posts and pictures (WordPress can be so weird sometimes), but I’m still working on my photography skills. But I’m so proud of the progress I’ve made, and I can’t wait to look back this time next year and see how far I’ve come.


Thanks so, so much for reading along this year! Is there anything you wish I’d talk more about? Or maybe talk less about? 😉 I’m all ears!
