I had almost decided to stop blogging.
It wasn't actually a conscious decision at first. Mostly, I was overwhelmed with work, helping to launch the new version of the website I work for. It seemed every waking hour was spent at the computer and I could barely cook a decent dinner, let alone write about it. So a month went by, then two. And soon I just decided that I just wouldn't do it anymore. But then there was the begging....
Priscilla keeps hounding me relentlessly. "You need to get back to blogging," said in the semi- bitchy, demanding tone that means she is going to bend me to her will no matter what.
And so here is this post by way of explanation. And since I now have four minute until I wake the kids and make them bagels for breakfast, I will post a link to a piece I wrote for the website I work for. This is a review of a piece of kitchen equipment I had been wanting, mostly to make a fabulous dish that we made last year for my daughter's wedding. My mother actually brought her meat slicer in her RV with her, because after all, you never know when you will want to make Seared Carpaccio of Beef with Fried Capers and Parsley Oil. So, I got a slicer and reviewed it. I didn't talk about making the carpaccio, because that is not the audience for it, nor was I my usual snarky self. (Well, maybe a little). So, here is the review.
PS. I also wrote the review of Greek Peak Indoor Waterpark that is on the homepage of that site, if you want to read that.
I promise to try to blog at least once a week and to rip someone's cooking or cooking practices to shreds in the near future.
