TTP Blogiversary: We turn two today!

Today marks the 2nd anniversary of our very first blog post!

My now-husband Jeff and I launched this blog on April 6, 2009, almost 8 months after our first date (Jeff cooked dinner for me).  Most of our dates involved impressing each other — and our friends — with our culinary experiments and skills, and we were both frequently asked by friends and family to share our recipes.  Thus, The Taste Place was born.

We look forward to many more years of cooking and blogging together.

Our Firsts

The very first recipe we posted?
Giada’s Roasted Chicken with Balsamic Vinaigrette (so good!).

Our very first review of a culinary outing?
