I know it’s been a while but I’ve been at this so long, that I feel I need to make no excuses to y’all for my absence. Because life happens and because you know I’m committed to my corner here in the blogosphere. And that means this website needs to roll with the punches – just like me.
These past few weeks, I’ve been cooking up a storm. You won’t know it because, you haven’t heard from me about all those recipes – hand written scratches on equally ratty pieces of paper are stacking up in the corner of my counter top patiently waiting for me to make sense of them, organize my thoughts and finally write a post.
I find I hardly watch the news channels anymore & have removed the Facebook app from my phone. I have no reason to turn my energies towards the ‘echo box’ except once a day when I take delight in the happening of friends and their rich lives.
However, I am resolved to make my corner of the world a little better. And that means by creating more, cooking more, writing more and spending quality time with my family & friends. I love my job working with Adult and Community education, I love the people who join me for my cooking classes and I have so much to be grateful for because they give my life, purpose.
So each day, I THINK. HAPPY. THOUGHTS. And so many of those revolve around great food! And travels! Like the trips we've taken. And the next culinary vacation I've put together for Montreal & Quebec city next year. BTW, email me if you want to join (I have 2 spots open!)
See? HAPPY THOUGHTS.
So finally, here I am sitting on my exercise ball (yes I do and no, I don’t have an office chair) in front of my computer writing about one of the most yummy and chocolaty recipes you can ever make these holidays.
From Tuscany, Chocolate ‘Salami’ loaded with nuts and biscuits and a hint of orange zest. The roll makes wonderful hostess gifts, presents beautifully and is perfectly portioned so you can enjoy a piece of, rather than indulge in gluttony followed by a hefty dose of self loathing!
On that note, here we go…
