Recently things have been a bit sparse around here and for that we apologize. Time just seems to be getting away from us. In Colorado it felt as though we were looking for things to fill our days and here in New York we are constantly taken off guard by the passage of time. It's almost always later than we think it is. There don't seem to be enough hours in the day to get everything done.
We may have a store in the city that will be carrying the hard cover version of the book. If that happens, some of you will be able to peruse it's pages before making your purchase. Sales have been steady and we want to thank all of your for your support. The hardcover book takes a few weeks to arrive in your mailbox, one of the downsides of self-publishing, but we think the difference in quality is worth it. For those of you who have had trouble trying to purchase the book, you must click on the blue "Buy Now" button in order for the link to work. Alternatively you can go to www.lulu.com and search for Ideas in Food in books.
We are re-organizing the kitchen (and other parts of the house) in Queens to get things ready for some serious cooking. We're also trying to finish up our recipes for the Holland America cruise in the beginning of February. We have just lined up our first paying food photography assignment and we're going to be working on that next week. We can't wait to get back in the kitchen and there will soon be some fresh photos for you to ponder. We've also made a trip to the Berkshires and upstate New York to look at properties. We've put faces to names with some very cool people and made several new and positive acquaintances, both in person and on-line, over the last week. To think we've only been back East for nine days. The changes have been amazing and we're truly excited to see what the future will bring.
It's amazing to think that a simple change in geography can make such a big difference in our live. It's making us really evaluate where we want to be and what we want to do. We have this incredible sense of energy and excitement that has been missing in our lives for quite some time. The possibilities seem endless. It's very important for us to make the most of our time and energy and really savor life's experiences. This website has become a great resource for us and we want to thank all of our readers for helping to enrich our culinary experiences and to inspire us to keep on pushing the envelope. We couldn't do it without you.
