OMG....My Blog just hit 1,000,000 Hits

It's taken 4 years, but I finally made it! 1,000,000!!! We're eating out tomorrow night at the best steak house in town to celebrate. When I said that 4 years ago, I never thought it would actually come to pass. I'm sure the more popular blogs do that much traffic in just one year, but I'm pleased my recipes have been received well int he LC communities I participate in.

Thank you ladies. And a double whammie today. Mark's Daily Apple (the big Primal Blueprint website) posted a link to my Beef Sofrito on Zoodles on his daily blog! He's never heard the term "zoodles" before, apparently. Man, has my website traffic really picked up TODAY!! About doubled! My site is finally starting to get some Paleo and Primal exposure as well as recent Keto Diet exposure.

Just call me the LCF "Dumpling Doughgirl", Diana. Until I lose this remaining belly fat, you could even poke the proverbial finger in this doughgirl just like those dumplings! LOL Remember the giant marshmallow boy walking down the street in Ghostbusters? LOL That's what I'll be picturing myself as if I'm known just for those dumplings. LOL Maybe that reputation won't leave LCF.

Another positive occurrence today.......my Beef Sofrito got linked over on Mark's Daily Apple! Web traffic has more than doubled since his post. Be still this beating heart.
I know EXACTLY where you're coming from! Just remember, though, those dumplings are really low carb, really healthy, and really helpful to all of us who are struggling to follow this WOE!

Not to make light of the recipe, as I find them pretty special, too. I'm still amazed they cook up right. They have certainly been a life saver for me, and so incredibly easy. A girl's just got to have chicken and dumplings once in awhile in the winter.

congrats Peggy--it's an awesome blog! I made the shepherds Pie this week--it is husband approved for sure as are a lot of your recipes--I didn't have any carrots so I used a can of rutabaga for the carrots--it worked well--I love the cauliflower topping so next time I intend to double that and there will soon be a next time--thanks again for your blog--a big celebration is in order if you count how many of us are thankful and appreciative-it should be a long celebration over several weeks!!

Congratulations, Peggy!! That's just. . . wow. . . . as are your recipes. Montreal chicken is probably my absolute favorite of all of yours. My entire extended family (there's a lot of 'em) now makes that one on a regular basis for Sunday dinners, low carbers and not. Then there's the newest bread recipe, of course, which is high up there on the list. Aaaaand the "corn" muffin recipe. I could go on!
