Well... hello!

Well hello there!

It sure has been a while since you've heard from me on this blog. I had to take an unexpected break to take care of some personal things.  OK a lot of personal stuff. :) Life has changed since we last spoke! Where do I start? What do I say first?!
  1.  I'll start with SORRY. I'm really SORRY. No excuses. Just life. I was surprised that a few of you, who I didn't know even read my blog, asked what happened to it?! I'm sure no one actually cares THAT much that I went MIA, but now you're reading again, so there's that. :)
  2. In December of 2011, after years of many, many issues, tests and doctor visits, I discovered that I have a severe gluten intolerance. I get very sick when I eat gluten, even in minute amounts now that my body hasn't had any in so long. #TMI I do not have Celiac disease, but I avoid gluten as if I do. I have been 100% gluten-free for almost 3 years now. I also eat dairy-free most of the time to feel my best, so my new recipes will be very allergy-friendly. :) P.S. I also still make a ton of my old recipes using gluten-free substitutes, so if you're curious, just ask!
  3.  I accepted a new job and in July of 2012, I packed up my 9,571 boxes of kitchen gadgets and relocated to sunny, glorious & beautiful Colorado! I live and work in the Boulder/Denver area. I play in the mountains.I still do advertising stuff- for a company that also helps other companies come up with new food products. In a giant test kitchen. In my office. Umm...#Iwasmadetobehere
  4. I adopted a new fur baby. The light of my life. Tiny kitchen assistant (AKA floor licker). Meet Newman. Newman is officially a "potcake" from the Bahamas, but I'm pretty sure he's a "whippador" or lab/whippet mix. Quirky little guy.
  5.  I bought my first house.YAY! #grownupthings I have a big kitchen, so that's the most important thing. Can you really ever have enough cabinet space though?
  6. Fell in love with a mid-western boy. My heart. Child-at-heart kitchen (AKA eating) assistant. Meet R. Scroll down. :)

This is Denver. Festivals. Roasted Corn. Yum.
OK. So now that you're basically all caught up on my life, how about we continue this blog thing, shall we? :) I'm not really sure what my blog will look like from here, but I would like to keep it up as an account of my new life & baking/cooking adventures.

Is anyone still reading? I'd love to hear from you! What is going on with YOU?!

Lots of love,

M

  1. Yeah! I'n looking forward to hearing from you and what's good! You may have to translate back to "gluten" for some of us old-timers! Welcome back, you've been missed!!! :)
