Well, somehow Claire and I have been blogging for about 4 months now! We’ve been able to post twice weekly and while it has been challenging, it has also been very rewarding. In 4 months, as you might imagine, Claire has changed a lot. I can no longer wear her while I cook and instead enjoy her babbles and giggles (what I consider valuable inputs) from wherever she may be!
We’ve also been very fortunate to have many readers join us on our food and kitchen journeys. We’ve made some “blog friends” as well as some new twitter and Facebook friends. The virtual world is quite amazing and very friendly!
Through all these interactions, we’ve gotten great feedback and great ideas on how to move forward with our blog. For now there will be one main change: one post per week instead of two. The main reason for this is that I just haven’t been able to devote enough time to the pages on the blog to fill them with essential, juicy info. In addition to the Pantry page, there are a few others in the works, namely “Knife Skills” and a “Basics” page where I hope to post basic recipes such as homemade mayo (with vegan options), sauces, stocks, etc. (Another reason is I’m slowly but surely learning how to navigate the world with a semi-mobile almost 9 month old infant! I’m also slowly but surely getting back into the teaching kitchen.)
So, even though you’ll only be getting one email per week from me, there will be a bunch of stuff going on. Be sure to check back often and see how things are shaping up. Please feel free to leave me a comment here on the blog, on the Guaya Gourmet Facebook page or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Be well, enjoy the summer and cook your hearts out!
Nathalie and Claire Berlin
