Celebrating the first year in blogging

Yes, it’s been a year since Cookslovak was born into the blogging world. It’s not only the reason to celebrate, but also to have a look back at how the blog grew, both in size and the quality of material. While I can see the former from the number of published posts, it’s difficult for me to assess the latter, and that’s where your help would be much appreciated.

The idea behind Cookslovak was to bring you a taste of Slovakia – a small country that appeared on the map of Europe quite recently, compared to its bigger neighbours. My intention was not only to present traditional Slovak recipes, but also to give you an insight into our culture.

Did I manage to achieve this?
Have you learnt anything new from Cookslovak?
Is there a post on the site that you find particularly interesting or surprising?
