Blog,  Cooking Tip


Um. Hi guys!  What’s new?  I am sorry I have been away for so long, but I sometimes get a little paralyzed by the blog.  There are so many things I want to say – things about recipes; feelings about life; brilliant, witty observations – that I get overwhelmed and then don’t publish any of my many, many drafts I have started.  After a while nothing seems good enough, so I don’t post anything.

Well, that kind of sucks for you. Doesn’t it?  So, I am going to just say hi and give up a quick update on what has been going on with me.  First of all, Erik and I are engaged!  The wedding is in a few months (eeeek! tiny freakout based on the amount of decisions that still need to be worked out).  Without getting too lovey-dovey mushy, I am grateful to be marrying someone so fun, loving, and inspirational. I can’t imagine my life without him.

Our wedding planning so far has been a lot of fun, because we have agreed on almost everything. As someone that tends to obsess over things, it is really comforting have something so important go smoothly.

Other than this huge life change, everything else has been pretty mellow around these parts. I am a little obsessed with the site, pinterest, and have even added a side bar so you can see all my latest pins. If you want an invite, let me know!  You should be warned, it is a little addicting.

In the food related world, I have been referring to a cookbook I got as a Christmas gift from my Dad, All About Braising by Molly Stevens.


I have read about this book for years and am really glad I have it.  Her recipe for braised cabbage is delicious, along with the two pot roast recipes I have tried. If you love the slow-and-low method of cooking, like I do. Check it out!

Since I haven’t heard from you all in a while, I am wondering… Anyone try out any great new recipes?  I miss you guys!
