Happy Blogiversary!

Happy Birthday to Clean Green Cuisine! Today marks the 1 year anniversary of my blog. Its hard to believe, the year sure has gone by so fast. In honor of this special day, I've been reviewing my old posts and looking back through some of my favorite recipes. Its fun to see how my blogging style and even my eating style has changed. In the beginning, I blogged everything I ate. I decided at some point that that was a little intense, so I started posting only when I made a really delicious dish that I wanted to share. I don't like to play favorites, but here are a few of the recipes I liked the best. Just don't tell the others.

My very first recipe was a roasted vegetable gratin.

This cherry buttermilk cake was outstanding.

This was one of Derek's favorites, linguine with clam sauce. Very spicy and garlicky. It was also the last meal I cooked before the disastrous Raw Week.

These crab cakes and remoulade have been very popular, several friends have enjoyed this recipe.

The granola is a staple. Very important to have some made at all times.

Kale chips! Gotta love kale chips.

I made zucchini fritters all summer long. Can't wait to see these again.

And these slow roasted tomatoes were perfect for summer picnics.

My first ratatouille was huge success.

A recent favorite - outstanding buttermilk biscuits.

I love playing with different whole grains. They are the stars of the show in these risottos.
Wheatberry risotto with beets and greens

Barley with brussel sprouts and carrots

How could we forget the green monsters?

Blue cheese souffle was decadent and perfect.

And for dessert...rich chocolate mouse made with locally made, stone ground Taza chocolate.

I also chronicled lots of fun events this year.

My Stowe 8-Miler was a huge accomplishment for me. I had so much fun run this race.

Our Labor Day celebration was quite a food extravaganza.

Lisa's carnival was a memorable and sticky birthday celebration.

Oh, yeah. I also got married this year.

Thank you so much to all of you who have been reading, eating, and laughing with me this past year. I hope to continue to bring you even more delicious food in the future!
