Classic ANZAC Biscuits (and a little celebration!)

I’m very excited to write this little post! Partly because I love ANZAC biscuits and any excuse to make a batch is a pretty darn good one, but also because the very first post on Bake Play Smile was for ANZACS. Anyway, I knew that this little blog was coming up to a teensy milestone and wanted to do a special post to celebrate. Yep, my little baby of a blog has had over 1 million views! I honestly can’t believe it. When I started Bake Play Smile less than two years ago, my plan was for it to become my own little online cookbook. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that it would have 1 million views. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who visits my blog, leaves gorgeous comments and chats with me on social media. A lot has happened in the last 18 months and your support has meant that I was able to take a giant leap and take leave from my job to work on my blog, which really is a dream come true!

ANZAC biscuits So, I was chatting to Dave about what kind of special post I could do to celebrate hitting the 1 million views mark and he suggested that I redo my very first post. Oh my gosh.. looking at this post (and reading it!) is like listening to embarrassing speeches at your 21st. You can check it out here. But be warned, you will probably fall over laughing and then start cringing at the awful photos (see it really is like a 21st!). Geez I was so serious about things, and my text is in different colours – and I think I can see my reflection in some of the photos (cue forehead slapping).
