I try not to delve too much into my personal life on here, but it’s pretty much impossible to avoid all talk of it. After all, it’s what happens in our lives that inspires our cooking, be it a family member's birthday, a yearning to recreate a beloved sandwich from a city you used to live in, a craving for something comforting when you're sick, or a special dinner for someone you love.
I know I’ve been scarce on here as of late, but it’s because there has been so much going on this past month. As I had mentioned in a previous post, my brother got married in Baltimore a few weeks ago. My brother and sister-in-law put in a lot of work in a short period of time and it all paid off – the wedding was beautiful and everyone had so much fun.
OK, obviously my brother’s wedding can’t be keeping me so busy. So what has, you ask? Well, it turns out that I’m next – Matt proposed a few weeks ago and now I am completely entrenched in the wild world of NYC wedding planning!
Between the job and the commuting and event planning, I haven’t set foot in the kitchen. I really do miss cooking but right now I have too many other things to do to feel guilty about not posting on here regularly. Once I get a few things set (namely, a location for our wedding), I think I’ll be able to relax a bit more and get back into the kitchen. I do, however, still have a few old things that I never got around to posting, so don’t think that I’m abandoning you just yet. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some of them up in a timely manner (i.e., not two weeks from now).
Until then, keep checking back, and keep your fingers crossed that I don’t freak out at how much a custom flavor wedding cake costs and then insist I bake my own (I was seriously considering it!).
