Charlie T’s Specialty Meats in Breaux Bridge Louisiana

We published our 2016 Year End Review two weeks ago due to the holiday season taking a big bite out of our time.

Somehow, we managed to get 51 posts up in December 2016 in spite of a ball-breaking load of obligations (work, scouting po boy restaurants, and holiday parties)

Final tally for our year’s work came to 624 posts. Nowhere near a record but still a decent year.

We posted 46 articles during the month of June 2016. Here are the top five (ranked via page views) for the period.

2016 Ole And Nu Style Fellas Social Aid And Pleasure Club

We penned 41 posts in the month of April. That may represent an all time low in the history of the site, but frankly we’re too lazy to go back in time to dig up our old statistics to see if that holds true.

But we spent a nice chunk of the month in Amsterdam and were not concerned with grits, hotplates or po boys while we were overseas. We were too busy riding bicycles and eating heaping plates of Dutch Pork Ribs

Here are our top five most popular posts for April 2016:

March 2016 was eerily quiet at the Scrumptious Chef site as we only managed to post 57 times. We apologize for our sloth and will double down our efforts in April, our second favorite month of the year behind the behemoth that is October.

Here are our top five articles of March 2016:

February was a quiet month at Scrumptious Chef as we only managed to post 67 times. We’ll ramp up our efforts for March as we have no interest in being regarded as a slog. Still, we’re easily the most active New Orleans food blog and we don’t see any real challenges on the horizon. If you know of a good New Orleans food blog please comment below. We have yet to find one.
