Somewhere along the line I forgot that this IS NOT just a food blog, it’s MY blog, about MY life. Not just what I eat and cook. Although that is a HUGE part of it. Basically I somehow forgot that I can just simply write, write about my life, what’s going on, and there doesn’t always have to be a recipe, or pictures, or anything. So here’s a brief recap…
Without my laptop I feel maimed, like I can only write posts that lack the great food pics I have on my camera, all the step by step pictures to accompany my recipes, the adventures I’ve been having, EVERYTHING! Needless to stay, it’s still being worked on, but there is an end in sight. I should have it within the next week, and I have A LOT of pictures on there for your viewing pleasure!!!!
What have I been up to? I have been busy…. I make bees look slow!!!!!! lol. Let see… I had a fantastic luncheon with some friends from out-of-town; Kerry and her husband Ron. They are kindred spirits and I am so grateful that life has worked its magic to bring them into my life. They even brought me a HUGE box of Pignoli Cookies from Boston. They were the most amazing Pignoli Cookies I have ever had in my life. Oh words cannot even describe them!!!!! Just thinking about them makes me want to convince D aka Crazypants to come visit me. (As if she needs another reason?!?!?!) She can bring Pignoli Cookies and Ricotta Pie’ from Mikes, and I will provide Ruhlman TV specials, libations, food, fun. D come visit! :-).
A few weeks ago we went Apple Picking with Taylor, it was so special and wonderful. I really love that little girl, and I can’t wait to share the pictures with you all. It was October, but we missed a lot of the apples. But we did get plenty, and made lots of great memories that I can’t wait to tell you all about!!!!! Here’s a hint, it involves me climbing a tree!
Hmmm what else is going on?? Tonight I made a bangin chicken parm, sweet baby jesus it was good. So good I want more right now! Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and this will be the first year I host it in my home. I am thrilled and can’t wait to make a special meal for my family and spend time with them all! 🙂
The Hudson Valley Baking Society has been really busy! It’s great. We had a fantastic fundraiser/bake sale back in September in Port Ewen; and we will be having a Holiday Stollen Baking Workshop coming up in December. There is so much to look forward to.
I made a blog page on Facebook!!!!! Yes, I really did it!!!! So if you haven’t “liked” it yet, go and like it now to stay up to date on everything that happens in between posts. I keep things short and sweet; write about day to day activities, cooking, recipes etc. And if you have any cooking or baking questions you can always post them for a quick answer!

And I FINALLY got a new phone. I am so anti technology!!!! I would have kept that crackberry forever if it took better pics, lol. Well that and after the water incident, it just hasn’t been the same, so it was finally time to get a new one. I’m still learning how to use it, I’m so not as tech savvy as you would think.
I think that’s about it for now. I’ll stop getting so off track, and I’ll remember that it’s not just about the food. And write more 🙂
