Attention fellow bloggers, readers and fans — this Just a Little Bit of Clairity post is a significantly special one to me this week. Last year, I made a promise to myself to start a blog focusing on all things food, fiction and furnishings. I set out to share a plethora of recipes, DIY home projects and captivating books. And on March 4, I conquered my resolution of blogging for one year. No worries to my followers out there; I’m not about to lay the computer down and walk away. It’s been an incredible boost to my creative juices, allowing me to try things I would never imagine before. So in honor of this accomplishment, here’s a look back at some of my favorite and popular blog posts of the year.
Welcome to my inaugural post in my little corner of the inter-webs. This day kicks off the beginning of what I hope are many more posts to come for my blog — Just a Little Bit of Clarity.
In this Food for Thought, I’ll be showing you how to make a classic margherita pizza. It seems strange to me that my first post should be centered around a pizza, but such is the case. I say this because up until recently I absolutely hated pizza. I know, right? Who in world hates eating pizza? I might as well have been the only kid in the world to feel this way. Sleepovers, birthday parties, Girl Scout meetings. Those were the worst. My Mom always had to pack a Tupperware full of spaghetti while the other kids filled up on pepperoni or sausage. Needless to say, I was the “odd man out.”
So why am I writing about pizza for my first post? Like with most things, my taste buds changed over time. Once I found out there were other possibilities outside of Papa John’s or Domino’s, I actually found out not all pizzas need to be filled with grease or cardboard crust to taste delicious. And here I find myself enjoying a fabulous margherita pizza that I’m going to share with you today.
