You may have noticed it’s been a little quiet around here lately. I go through spurts of activity naturally, but I’ve also started a new journey in my normal 9-5 career. I am officially working toward getting my CPC, Certified Professional Coder, certification for medical billing. It’s been a shocking amount of work that I can only slot into the time I usually give to my writing, so for the next few months, things will not be as prolific as they were near Christmas.
Some of the projects promised at the beginning of the year remain on the table. I started with a cookbook from the large supply of old cookbooks that my father-in-law gifted to me during our trip. The first of those cookbooks should be well reviewed by the end of February. There are a few stand out recipes that I’ve already added to my weekly rotation more than once!
Restaurant reviews will come in much more slowly. My husband and I have agreed to cut back our spending in terms of eating out. We’ve a fun vacay planned for the first week of March that will be the opposite of those first two sentences, but after that, it’ll be pretty quiet on the restaurant front. Food at home is becoming a priority, which means…
ORIGINAL RECIPES, FINALLY. The first should land this week. A lot of these recipes will be riffs on meals I’ve taken from some of my cookbooks of the month to use in my home more frequently. This is a food blog, after all. I should be doing some of my own cooking for you, not just reviewing cookbooks.
As I always do when something that slows me down is going on, I wanted to thank you, readers, for sticking around.
