Housekeeping Things!

This is me making quiona for the first time.
Isn't this apron fantastic?
Although I've been better about posting recipes lately, I realized that my pages were pretty out of date. My last recipe was added to my recipe page back in JULY... oh boy. So yesterday I went through and added all the recipes I've posted since. It's becoming quite the nice little collection!

Sometimes things get a little crazy when you're waiting for things to bake...
I also added a Reviews page to my blog, where I can organize the various little reviews I do around here. I'm hoping to try out some new restaurants around here and really hone the art of reviews so that I can use them as clips when I'm trying to break back into the publishing world. My friends at Lisa Ekus are nice enough to send me cook books from their new catalogs, and I have 150 Best Cupcake Recipes by Julie Hasson to review soon. Also, I'm a Buzzagent, so I occasionally get sent new products to review. They usually send me makeup to review (that doesn't quite fit in with this blog) but they most recently sent me pizza... it was during a busy time and I missed the cutoff though... but hopefully they'll send me something else food-related soon and I can add to that section. Also I have my fingers crossed that I'll be approved to be a FoodBuzz featured publisher, so that might also give me even more products to add to my reviews!

I challenge you to a duel!
I also updated my To Cook List with a bunch of recipes that I've bookmarked from my favorite blogs that I want to try. This way when I'm not at my own computer (since I often borrow friends' kitchens for my cooking) I can easily go to that page and be inspired.

Finally, I added a few blogs to my Links Page. I have so so many that I visit every day, and I try to comment as often as I can, so it's likely I've missed some. If I'm a frequent commenter on your blog it probably means you should be on that list, so let me know if I've missed anyone :)


  1. You're so cute! And fun. I have lots of housekeeping to do too. . . keep putting it off.

  2. I REALLY need to update my recipe index. Today is the day! you've inspired me.
