It’s been exactly one year since my first post.

And a great year it has been!

I’d like to shout a great big “thank you” to each and every person who has let me know that you like what I am doing here. I’ve “met” so many smart, supportive, encouraging, and incredibly talented people because of this blog- the inspiration I get from you all is amazing.

Now since all birthdays (even at healthy recipe blogs) deserve cake, I hope you will virtually share this slice with me in honor of Healthy Green Kitchen.

This cake recipe is found at food52 and was shared by Emily Nunn, a great writer and cook who blogs at Cook the Wolf.

In true Winnie fashion, I used organic butter, organic sugar, organic free range eggs and raw grass-fed milk. I used spelt flour and pastured leaf lard instead of shortening, and I decorated my slices with candied violets. It’s a fantastic cake- perfect for celebrating a special day ;)

    Happy First Anniversary, Winnie! Your blog and cooking philosophy are truly an inspiration. Btw, is Nourishing Traditions a sourcebook for you? I have just discovered it, and feel my life about to change…

    Megan- thank you so much!

    Glutton- thank you and yes, I love NT. Read it when it first came out and it certainly did change my life- it is still a much thumbed reference to this day, and I often mention it on the blog.
