Your Best Recipes of October 2011, Celebrating One Year

by Spicie Foodie on October 31, 2011

This month we are marking one year of YBR. I cannot believe that one year has already passed and that the little event I thought up would become so big and such a fun thing to host every month. But of course it just couldn’t have been possible without  you. You who month after month have participated, have helped get the word out, you who have been so supportive. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!  Sending all of you a big virtual hug. In the coming days I will be hosting a special giveaway open just to YBR participants, if you’ve participated in at least one then you are eligible. But in the meantime let’s all raise our glass to another delicious year of YBR to come. Cheers!!
