Happy New Year!

1 Jan

To all my lovely and loyal readers, I hope the holiday season has been a wonderful one for you, and the new year filled with promise. I’ve never been much for resolutions, but I do appreciate tradition. So in honor of newness, I’m starting out 2011 with a new blog layout, and a new seasonal produce guide – which sadly, has not been updated since I started this blog in the Spring!

I’ve also spent a little time thinking about posts I’d like to write this year, so here’s a little sneak peek. 🙂

Theme weeks to watch for in 2011:
* Newman’s Own Cookbook, by Paul Newman, the salad dressing guy & actor in one or two movies
* The Conscious Cook, by celebrated vegan chef Tal Ronnen
* The Simple Art of Eating Well Cookbook, a lovely Christmas present from my mother
* The ABCs of nutrition: natural sources of vitamins & minerals, a theme suggested by my wonderful friend Laura

I’m also aspiring to improve my photography and photoshop skills, delve further into social media and the food blogosphere, and write ever-more engaging and personal posts. As is evidenced by the frequency of posts tagged “Fall-Winter” these past couple months, I have been thinking a lot about eating seasonally, and I want to continue my focus on that as well. I like the idea of being in tune with the natural cycles of the earth… in the winter, we crave soups and heavy, hearty dishes, and in the summer, it’s time for watermelon and cottony dresses. Ok, well you can’t eat a dress, but that’s what I think of when I think of summer. I’ll find a way to translate it into food this year, I promise!

As always, I am open to any suggestions for recipes you’d like to see on the blog, or other feedback – I love hearing from you!

    A hug from your garrulous friend and admirer,
