Happy Blogi…well, you get the idea. Today is the 4th anniversary of my first post about Giada and her fricos. Since then I’ve written 68 more posts about her. (Actually, it’s probably more, but I don’t tag as religiously as I should.)

There have been 77 Ina posts (at least) and 42 about my favorite TV chef, Michael Chiarello. Oh, and 1 Twinkie post. Only? THAT’S how I know my tagging is incomplete.

I’ve written about The Today Show 25 times. Again, it’s probably been more.

And I’ve been lucky enough to write 19 Paris posts, which doesn’t mean I’ve been there 19 times in 4 years, just that I had a lot to say when I WAS there.

The other subjects that have shown up a lot are Thanksgiving (24); The Next Food Network Star (30, yikes!); and Rachael Ray, FORTY FOUR times! How is THAT possible?

I’ve written about the Cake Boss 20 times. (I think that number is low.) AND my number one read post (if I’ve figured this out properly) was the one about the Cake Boss’s Bridezilla episode.

My top number of posts award goes to Top Chef with 106, which doesn’t even include my 10 Just Desserts posts and 4 (so far)  about Top Chef All-Stars.

But no matter how many times I write THIS, I mean it from the bottom of my heart - thank you to each and every reader. I know your time is precious, which makes the deal we’ve struck even more priceless to me - I write stuff and you read it. Keep it up and so will I.
