Will Write for Food!

I've been meaning to get back to this blog for a long time, but I was frustrated with issues related to uploading images. Two things have happened to encourage me to work through my frustration:

1. I spent the weekend with my good friend Natalie in Portland. I got to spend a couple of hours at Powells, where one of my proud purchases was a book called Will Write For Food! I'm hoping that as I read it, I can get better and better at the actual writing here on my blog.

2. My friend Julie - who is one of my heroes - has an amazing blog and advised me today that she overcame all of her image issues by publishing using Firefox. Here I am on my first try, and I'm delighted with the results. (Finally got that d--- picture of the peanut butter bars to post from last October!)

One of my other proud purchases in Portland was a book on chocolate: Chocolate Obsession. Look for future updates as I experiment with its recipes.

Finally, one of the highlights of the trip was a trip to Moonstruck Chocolate. They had some of the finest truffles I have ever eaten.At any rate, I hope to be back more often. In the meantime, may the Great Cooking Spirit be with you....

Good for you! Let the blogging continue. I'm glad the great cooking spirit is back. I expect to see lots of lovely pictures from now on.

Hey, will you show me how to make a box?
