the hold-up . . .

Is the lack of a digital SLR camera. Or any other decent camera, for that matter. All of the pictures I have been taking of food look like complete crap, and I can't be starting a food blog with crappy food shots, now can I?

I'm leaving for a visit with the hus in Sweden in a couple of days. Upon my return I will be selling my car, and with some of the car money (SOME, the majority is getting squirreled away for much more important things) I'll be buying myself a camera that can take a decent close up food shot. Lucky me, I moved just a few blocks away from a camera shop with a decent stock of lightly used ones.

Then I'll post the URL. Patience, muffins.

hey universe

We're vacating our apartment, which will be available for rent Feb 1st. It's a great split level 2 br 2 bathroom apartment with a wood burning fire place, balcony, huge stoarge space, in suite laundry, and a parking space. Rent goes up to $1400/month when we leave. If you are looking for a new place, or know anyone who is, let me know and I'll put you in touch with the right people.

a taste of what's to come . . .

After thinking long and hard about a lot of things on a lot of levels, I have decided I need to be putting my blogging energy somewhere I feel is more productive. Come 2010 January I'll be launching a food blog called Deconstructing the Muffin Myth (url to come) where I'll be posting weekly food related rants, adventures, and recipes.

It seems these days that developing a following on the blog-o-sphere is one of the first steps to becoming a well known foodie, and ultimately getting into the cookbook or cooking show or other food related world. The efforts I put into blogging my personal life will soon be put into my food life, which is, I think, where more of my energy needs to be (as opposed to so much complaining about how much I hate school).

If any of you have any recipes you're itching to see featured, or want re (or de)-constructed, fire them in my direction. Any if any of you are blog-tech whizzes and have some advice (Nicole - how the heck did you create that 'about' page?) send that my way as well. And if you have a D-SLR camera collecting dust that you want to loan/barter/sell me, let me know.

I'll post a link to the new site when it's up and running.

the future of this blog . . .

Is in question. I've been debating shutting 'er down for quite some time, and haven't largely because this is the only way I keep in touch with some of you. There are some things that bug me about the blog though, and I think it may be time to put my energy somewhere I feel better about. I'll keep you posted.

We just got the first batch of wedding pictures from our amazing photographer. Its a little slideshow of the highlights, and is set to music, some of which is my very talented friend Harmony, who was kind enough to sing at our wedding, so watch with your sound turned on. You can see the slideshow by clicking here.
