What the____???

Would someone please tell me how my blog visits spiked to over 500 the other day?  I cannot find where there may have been a link or a mention that would send those numbers over to li'l ole me...  And I'm sorry if I didn't give you all individual attention-  if I knew you wuz comin' I'd a baked a cornmeal cake instead of just corn muffins (with sharp cheddar).  Which I finished off a few hours ago.

Cornmeal Cake

Preheat oven to 400, butter a 9" cake pan.
     fine grind in your food processor:
1 c. skinned blanched almonds OR hazelnuts
1/3 c. cornmeal
1/4 tsp salt
     mix together:
1 c. flour, leveled
1/2 tsp baking powder
     cream together:
1/2 c. sugar (lt. brown is good too)     
1/2 stick butter
     add and mix well:
3 egg yolks
1 tsp. vanilla OR almond OR lemon zest

Pour batter into buttered pan, bake about 30 minutes until  a test toothpick comes out clean.  Meanwhile, clean and macerate a pint of berries, mixed or plain, whatever is in season with a bit of sugar and a splash of liquour or maybe some balsamic vinegar reduction if you have strawberries.  Serve the cake warm and add a plop of creme fraiche.  The Best summer cake.

Sandie,if you had been reading Quilt Art, you would have known that someone asked for favorite quilting blogs and yours was mentioned! 3,000 people on the list and you only got an extra 500? We all must be regulars then.

I had a visitor to my blog from
Romania who visited every single page in my blog going back months.
Why? Who knows.
