(Meander back to my first Blogiversary!)

There have been a quite a few changes to the  list in the past year.  The most viewed recipe has not previously appeared in the top ten and only three recipes remain from last years list.  Last year I wondered where Fragrant Marmalade Cake would reach after twelve months as it had a large number of views in its first month.  Here is the answer: still popular, it is at No 2.  Will it every get to No1, I wonder?

I have continued to post both family recipes and new discoveries from magazine articles and the many books I own or get from the library.  However, for every one I post there are more in the pipeline, so watch this space!
