Pickle Barrel Desserts

Celebrate! A double trio of desserts at The Pickle Barrel Restaurant.

Somehow with all the craziness of the Olympics, I managed to miss the first anniversary of this blog!

TastyTangents got off the ground on March 1, 2009, after much hemming and hawing on my part, wondering how I was ever going to find the time to post regularly.

We’ll I’ve certainly had my ups and downs, but I like to think that I’ve done a halfway decent job of keeping it up and running. And I’d like to send many thanks to the people who help me keep it going from the most encouraging (Dan), to the technical (Jason), insiprational (mom) and all the cheerleaders/eaters/guinea pigs (family and friends).

I have many recipes, photos and ideas that I can’t wait to blog about in the future, and I hope you’ll stay with me for many more food adventures.

Please let me know if there’s anything so far you’ve loved, hated, want second helpings of, or would like to see done differently. Thanks for reading!


  1. Thanks for the tip of the hat. Congratulations on your one-year anniversary, that’s great news. Where did the time go?

    For the second year, I’d like to see more frequent, shorter posts.

    You can do it!

  2. Congratulations on your first anniversary of this blog and keep up the good work. The photography is especially beautiful and I think that the interest you show in the diversity of the cuisine’s of the world is so much fun. I sometimes feel as though we are travelling with you both closeby and far away. From happy travels to peaceful cooking at home moments, you demonstrate authenticity, the gift of honesty and clarity of expression. Well done! as Len Goodman would say, “10”

  3. First of all, I love this blog! Just went back through some posts that I’ve missed and honestly, the photography, the art direction of the photos ;), your content and ideas are really fantastic! Bravo and keep doing the things that make you happy! f√©licitations! <3
