Step by Step in the Kitchen came into being in September 2011. It hard to believe it’s only been four months that I’ve been having such fun cooking, taking pictures and blogging about food!

I started with a salad and have worked my way through entrees, lunches, cakes, cookies, cupcakes and several other foods that don't fit in those categories. And the “topping on the cake” is that, through this blog, I’ve met so many wonderful readers and fellow bloggers.

Today I thought I’d rehash 2011, thus the name "Leftovers". I’ve listed the foods with their hyperlinks, so just click on whatever sounds good and it will take you to the applicable blog entry. It’s never too late to make comments or ask questions. All feedback comes to my email, no matter how far back you go.
