Possible Hiatus?

This plate, it is empty. Take it as a metaphor?
Life got in the way, folks, sorry about that. Going through a breakup currently (meaning one less kitchen I have to work with... among other things) AND my play opens next week. So even though I have recipes all photographed, the effort it takes to write them out, upload, and tie together with some witty overlying theme is just too much for me right now.

Jack is the only man I need anyway.
So I'm going to say I'll be taking an unofficial hiatus until my play closes July 17th (if you live in the Western Mass area and want to see it I'll give you the details!). Who knows, if I have some free time in between maybe I'll post a thing or two, but due to said break-up I'm trying to keep myself as busy as possible so that I don't fall into post-breakup-depression as I tend to do in these situations. Surrounding myself with friends and distracting myself with comedic literature seems to be my current plan of attack--as I've escaped to Boston twice already and bought Chelsea Handler's entire written works on Amazon.

The best food picture my crappy camera ever took... may it rest in peace.
The fact that I'm the opposite of a stress-eater doesn't help with the recipe development either. I tend to have to force myself to eat when sad rather than scarf down a pint of good ol' Ben and Jerry. When I do nibble on something, it's rabbit food at best. Not sure which is worse.

I can make macarons--therefore, I can conquer anything.
Anyways, don't worry about me, we've all been there and we all come out even better than before. I say that here because as I've said before, this blog is a happy place that I'd like to fill with positive energy--obviously I'm human and have spent the better part of the last week in a tear-soaked pile on my bedroom floor. I've been reading this article on "The Goddess of Never Not Broken" just about every day and it does help. If you've ever been through a breakup, it's worth a read. But in my heart and mind I know that things will get better, it wasn't meant to be, and soon I'll be happily cooking away and blogging merrily and being my usual smiley self.

Stick with me, my small collection of loyal readers, I'll be back. And maybe, just maybe I'll be even better than before.
Not sure why I chose to end with the ugly macaron...


  1. It is his loss and don't you forget that. Everything happens for a reason. You are young and so talented and you have your whole life ahead of you. Now go eat something delicious and move on!!!

  2. I agree with Maris - it really is his loss. Keep busy with your play and living your life and don't settle for anything less than someone wonderful who appreciates and loves you.

  3. I hope your play goes splendidly and brings you good cheer. You are amazing, some people just can't keep up. =)
