Hi all, I know it's been over a month since I've posted anything and you probably have been wondering what's been going on. December was an unexpectedly bad month - easily one of the worst months in my life. Bad enough I've not cooked or baked pretty much anything since the end of November. The few things I've forced myself to make (yes, the month was bad enough that actual force was involved) turned out....eh, let's not mince words. They kinda sucked. I don't know what you think about it, but I think I got proof that cooking and baking require a certain amount of happiness and/or love put in them to turn out good, haha.
It's now a new year, and I'm slowly recovering. It isn't easy, and there are still days where I feel hopeless that things will ever get better. But it's getting easier to remember that I also have days that aren't hopeless, where I can smile a genuine smile, even if it's only fleeting.
I hope to start getting posts up again this month. They will probably be infrequent at first, but if I can get 2-3 new recipes up before February I'll consider it a success. For those of you who have been patiently waiting, I thank you. I hope you all have had wonderful holidays and are ready to have a fabulous and tasty 2015. Thanks for letting me be a part of it.
