The Seasoned Noob's 1st birthday!

Well, today marks exactly 1 year since I started this whole deal and I just wanted to thank everyone for humoring me by reading my posts along the way, screwups and all. Just looking back at a few of the posts reminds me about how much I've learned just cooking different dishes and even though I'm still a recipe-based cook, I've experimented a lot more with different amounts of spices and whatnot to figure out how different tastes mix.

And as to the surprise...I'm unveiling a new, re-designed Seasoned Noob! I like some of the expandability that self-hosting a blog brings and after looking at what it would cost me for everything, I decided to finally bite the bullet. The price wasn't really all that bad and the other roadblock (read: my own laziness) was thrown by the wayside last week!

So I'm proud to present the new site but I'm still making a few tweaks (and there will be more in the future, I need a new banner, plus some other things) so I hope you all can bear with me.

The site is, please update your bookmarks and change your feeds/e-mail subscriptions!

Surprise on its way!

Ok well, maybe not a huge surprise to most of you that know me. But for those that don't, I can barely contain myself when I get excited so I'd probably have a tough time not letting the cat out of the bag if I saw you.

But anyway, big update coming, stay tuned :)

December Pot Luck

This post has been a little while in the making, I'd gotten into a little bit of a lazy bout and spent about a month without moving any photos off of my camera. But now they're moved and uploaded and it's time to post!

These pictures are from a pot luck I had in December, right after Frank's triumphant return from Asian subcontinent.
