Nami-Nami turns 5 today!

Baby-led weaning / Söömine on tähtis töö
This beautiful girl keeps me from blogging more often these days :)

My little foodblog, Nami-Nami, turns five today. It's been five fun years, and although I've been blogging less frequently during the last year or two (I've got a good reason, trust me - see above), I'm still enjoying it immensely and have no plans of stopping in the near future. Hope that you, my dear readers, will stick around as well :)

For those of you who have actually tried some of my recipes - would you mind naming your favourite one?

Here are links to some of the recipes that you've mentioned in the comments:
Canadian Apple Cake (November 2005)
Colorful quinoa salad with crayfish and avocado (February 2010)
Minimalist banana bread (May 2009)
Upside-down onion pie (January 2006)
Blueberry tart (April 2006)
Carrot ragout (December 2007)
Caraway teacake (December 2009)
Spiced rhubarb cake (June 2009)
Warm Ginger and Carrot Salad with Feta Cheese (November 2005/June 2009)
Raspberry focaccia (August 2008)
Mocca cake with toasted almonds (April 2006)
Kama muffins (June 2009)

Happy Blog Day!

Top fave would be the upsidedown onion pie, followed by the mõnus mustikapirukas blueberry tart ...

Alanna Kellogg said...

Happy Blog Birthday! I have so many favorites, if I weren't blogging myself, I could cook and cook and cook from Nami-Nami. I do so love your Canadian Apple Cake, however!

Liis said...

Kevadistest asjadest meenub kohe kinoasalat vähisabadega! Kaks korda tegin ühe nädala jooksul vist;)

Elis said...

Õnne minijuubeli puhul ja jaksu edaspidiseks tegevuseks!
Vaieldamatu lemmik on kanamaks Liibanoni moodi.

the minimalist banana bread didn't seem so special on my first read, but i've happily made it again and again and again...

oravake said...

Soojad õnnitlused! :)

Meie pere vaieldamatu lemmik on porgandiraguu. Läheb igast asendist.

Õnnesoovid. Uskumatult tegusad viis aastat on nami-namil olnud. Kuidas me küll enne hakkama saime :)

Carla said...

Your little girl is precious and I so understand about the not having time to blog because I have a four year old (adopted from Estonia)and she keeps me busy.
I have made a couple of your dishes and I love the Caraway Tea Cake. I have made it with the caraway seeds and without and we like it better with the seeds and I love it with the vanilla kefir.

I tried your recipe for Creamy Swede and Pearl Barley a couple months ago and it was really great. I've slowly been trying a bunch of your recipes and this is just the most recent. Love your blog!

Maru said...

Hääd!

Elizabeth said...

My little one also keeps me away from checking the blog daily - so, one day later, yet warmly: Happy blog birthday! Keep on, it's a pleasure to check you up for inspiration!

Gracianne said...

hello Pille,
Has it really been 5 years? Well I have enjoyed them as well, and some of your recipes too.

I think I have tried three excellent recipes on your blog (maybe more, tell me if I am wrong):

The salmon confit in olive oil : http://undimanche.blogspot.com/2009/12/des-travaux-un-polar-et-du-saumon.html

the toffee apple cake with cranberries: http://undimanche.blogspot.com/2007/01/cranberries-canneberges-ou-atocas.html

and the cranberries upside down cake: http://undimanche.blogspot.com/2006/03/le-gteau-de-nami-nami.html

that I have made sevrela times since then, a real classic at home now.

Happy blogbirthday and thanks for everything.

And the little girl is adorable! I can babysit for you if you ever want to go to the theater, to the movies... ;)

Happy birthday nami-nami!

I loved these - filo tartlets with beetroot and three different types of cheese - when you made them for our cinematic adventures many years ago. I now make them all the time and people love them.

Your plum cake (again one from a post ages ago) is also a massive favourite. Made it loads!

Juc said...

Happy birthday to you all - the blog and your whole family. You have been such an inspiration to us!

Debra said...

Want you to know that you've helped me come to appreciate the beets that I receive in my CSA (community supported agriculture) box each spring. Thanks for blogging and your daughter is beautiful.

Happy BBB - belated blog birthday. Hard to choose an absolute favorite, because I can't be sure which ones I've used from the English-lang version, and many times the blog has just served as a reminder of things to try and explore (like fava beans), but I will repeat my praise of the sour-cherry marzipan torte I made I think late last summer.

Magdalena said...

Happy Birthday! Congratulations! I like your blog a lot (since I discovered, I check it regularly). Take care, Nami-Nami
