I was born and raised in Kansas and learned to cook alongside my mother. Now, along with my wonderful husband, I have taken the plunge into the city life in New York. These are my food adventures: in my own tiny kitchen, and in the many restaurants of the city.

Where Have I Been?

It has been a while. I don't think I've ever gone this long without updating my blog. So what gives? A few things have kept me away:

1. At the beginning of August a friend and I planned a 6 course, 3 cocktail brunch for 25 people. We were so busy planning and preparing and I was waiting until it was all said and done to post about it (that post is still forthcoming--it was too much fun for me to pass over even though it happened a month and a half ago).

2. Lots of visitors to our fair city. Been hanging out with friends as they passed through and often they are staying with us so that took first priority.

3. I am training for the NYC Marathon that is fast approaching and training takes a lot of time.

4. Last, but certainly not least, I started a new internship at a magazine you may recognize. I'm still waiting tables as well, but I get to go in three days a week and do some work for the website, read food blogs, research food and smell the amazing scents coming out of the test kitchen (and sometimes even get to eat some of those products that are being prepared). Awesome. It's been a remarkable experience and I'm hoping that I can keep traveling down this career path because I love it.

So I will be back. I miss my blog and I miss sharing the recipes I come up with. It just may take a little more time to settle in to this busy schedule before I can find the time for photographing and writing out posts again. And so you know, I still am reading your blogs (it's part of my job! Really!) but I haven't had the time to comment, so don't think I've left you behind. :) I'll see you again soon. Don't forget me while I'm gone!
