Today is officially the one year anniversary of your all-time favorite food blog, Alpha Cook. This is also post #100 in case you are counting. (I personally think sloth can be a virtue.) Finally I have found an activity that can hold my flea-sized attention span for more than a few months! Of course, the occasional pestering from a certain spouse and friends never hurts either. I have “big plans” for the upcoming year: more booze, book reviews, local interest, a lot more sarcasm and maybe even a little gardening. Over the summer you can look forward to plenty of grilling, cold beer, and homemade condiments. In the next few months I’ll be working my way through a few old reprinted cocktail books and trying out some (many?) of the recipes. Aren’t you excited? Just nod your head and keep going for this year’s highlights.
