It has been nearly a year since I last posted.
I made 3 (three!) different kinds of homemade vanilla and didn’t share them with the world.
I convinced my husband to eat brussels sprouts, avocado, eggplant, fresh fruit, and various whole grains, and didn’t share my tips with others who share my struggles (major factors: biggest loser competition at his work and a new years resolution to try new things).
I relied too much on the internet for inspiration and instruction without giving anything back.
I was lax in my commenting.
I baked two wedding cakes and several gluten-free wedding cookie plates– and got married myself– without helping anyone else through the process.
Worst of all, I have let my fear win– all year long, I have been too afraid to make up my own recipes for the baked goods I’m missing– the fudge-topped butter cookies of my youth, the plain brown-butter oat cookie I crave, the margarita cookie I can actually taste the tequila in.
I am sorry. No more. My 2011 new years resolution is to be more creative in my cooking and baking and to share more– literally and figuratively. I hope you’ll join me… and if someone out there would like to pick my penance… I’m listening.
