Thank You Well Fed Network and Slashfood! (Fantabulous Flan)

Saturday, January 19, 2008


Whew! What a week this has been. Some really nice things are happening to me and my little blog these days. I’m not running around dodging the paparazzi or anything, but I am pretty excited about my news.
First of all, yours truly has been invited to be a contributing author for the Well Fed Network. WFN is a popular stop among foodies. It is a compilation of 14 food and drink related blogs, focusing on providing high quality and informative topical content. The WFN is the brainchild of Cate O’Malley of Sweetnicks, and she is the managing editor of the network.
I will be writing for two of their excellent sites, The Cook’s Kitchen and Paper Palate. As a matter of fact, three of my articles have already been published here, here and here! I can’t tell you how happy I am to be a part of the Well Fed Network!
As if that wasn’t enough, one of my photos has been chosen as Slashfood’sDaily Food Porn. OMG!!! Can you stand it? Last night, when I had my first chance of the day to breathe, I clicked on the site for my daily “Slashfood fix”. I was mindlessly scrolling down the page, when I saw a picture that looked familiar. “I took a shot just like that.”, I said to myself………

HUH! Wait a minute! THAT IS MY PICTURE!!! HOLY #&*#! I’M FOOD PORN!   read more >>

Sweet Solitude and Caldo Verde, Tortilla Espanola and Buttermilk Panna Cotta

The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry’s cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.

The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I’ll put a trinket on.
