Happy Birthday Gourmet Project!

Winter Vacation

Winter Vacation

Happy Holidays,
After great visits with family and friends over the past few days, I’m heading off to the airport to join my dining companion and her family for a ski vacation.

Catching Up

I’ve been looking through the backlog of recipes I’ve prepared, but still have to blog. While I’m doing well on the cooking, I’m way behind and slipping on the blogging. As of today’s count I’m 60 recipes behind, and I’m blogging midwinter recipes in July. Life coaches and fitness gurus are forever telling Oprah to [...]
