One year ago today, on February 8, 2018 I brought together three of my favorite pastimes, cooking, photography and writing in one modest blog. With the launching of Rosemarie’s Kitchen, I dared to invite strangers to pull up a chair, help themselves to a cup of coffee and chat a while as we cooked together. Food was always the number one subject, but not the only one. There were memories, and rants and thoughts that floated out across the pages. Many of you have been here from the beginning, others joined in later as the adventure continued. It’s been one heck of a year.
I wanted to say thank you to everyone. Thank you for taking a moment out of your day to spend it here with me. Thank you for the “likes” and the comments and the words of encouragement. I say . . .
And now my culinary look back on the last 12 months and those recipes most favored . . .

I am so excited about our second year of cooking adventures. I’m getting back to my roots of simple, basic cooking with a heavy Okie-Southern spin. I hope you come along and share your thoughts and memories. That’s what my kitchen is all about – a place to sit and talk and reminisce and most of all eat good food.

Happy one year mark. You’re a hit with me!
