Greetings from the blustery, winter-infested state of Missouri! I sit on my couch preparing myself to be snowed in for the next 3-4 days. I cleaned out my fridge and label faced my pantry, that's normal, right? I stocked up on enough goods to get me through, and enough baking supplies to make the best of the anticipated snow days. Let's just cross our fingers (and toes) that the power doesn't go out. I came to the startling realization I have no "land line", and my cell phone will run out of juice in a day or so. I guess I still have smoke signals, right? I hope you are all reading this from sunny southern California or some tropical destination, and that you are far far away from the midwest.
Anywho, back to business...I have returned yet again. I feel as though I write more, "I'm baaaack" posts than solid, sarcastic, food filled entries, full of awkward banter and truthfully this saddens me. I want to let you know all know I've not forgot about this blog, but rather I've been spending a lot of time trying to reinvent it. As I finish my last semester of college, I find myself busier than ever, and I've not had the time or energy to babble on here. I also find myself eating popcorn and multi-grain cherrio's perpetually, and I know I'm crafty but I can't really recommend any recipes for microwave popcorn or a bowl of cereal. However, I've gotten seven new cookbooks (and 3 new pieces of all-clad!!!) since we've last spoke, and I'm trying to focus all of my energy on becoming a more serious and well rounded cook/baker/person. I'm contemplating getting a "real" website and there is definitely something quite exciting in the works for me to share with you all. I'm absolutely certain you will love it.
So please, keep checking back, and I promise to serve you well. I'll be cooking up a storm, provided the storm doesn't stop me.
