Where has the time gone?

Mixed Pumpkins

I use my blog as online cookbook and bring it up when I am cooking at home on a regular basis. Today, I was looking at Christmas cookie recipes and notice that it’s been well over two years that I posted an actual recipe.

What happened?

Food photos from my Germany trip

I spent 3.5 months in Germany, from October 2014 to mid January 2015. I also took a trip to Graz, Austria and Prague, Czech Republic. The following pictures were taken during that time, all with my smart phone camera. As a result, some pictures are not too well light, over exposed due to the flash, or grainy due to the lack of light. I was able to get some nice pictures but not all are awesome. Yet, I felt I should show them anyway, it was a fun trip with awesome food after all.

Not lost

In case anyone might wonder: no, I am not lost or gone with the wind. I guess the best term, which is often used, is MIA. Missing in Action! Now, I wish I could say that I am baking and cooking like crazy, that I am making new things and trying new things and writing reviews.

But I am not.

The simple fact is, I am training for a marathon and that training takes a lot of time. It is also quite exhausting and food is to refuel not to look pretty, as least at the moment. My concerns these days are my pace, and the distance and injury related. Food, baking and cooking take the backseat.

However, do not despair, I have posts liked up, or rather, I have cooked and baked, taken pictures but no time to write it down yet. There is also a stack of books on my counter that asked to be reviewed. I also want to re-make old recipes and re-shoot them so you, my reader, has a better idea of the product.

After the FBC conference in April there are many things that I would like to enhance with the blog. As said above, photographs are one thing, re-writing the recipes is another thing. But all of this is work in progress, or rather planning in progress.

I will try to add a new recipe this week for your enjoyment. The marathon is May 26th, a couple of days of rest afterwards and I should be back to my old self.

Thank you for your patients.

What keeps you busy these days?

Happy Baking and Cooking.

FBC2013 – First Food Bloggers of Canada Conference

FBC2013

Yes, that’s quite the title and it is really fitting the weekend that we had, out at the Hockley Valley Resort in Orangeville. It was great to say the least, overwhelming almost. A whirlwind of 3 days of meeting people, eating great food, learning a lot and enjoying it to the fullest.

Work in Progress

I thought I just let you all quickly know that I am not injured, or dead, or anything else terrible. I am just fairly busy with my daily life and marathon training. However, I am working on a post about the Food Bloggers of Canada Conference that I attended two weekends ago. It should be up and running by this week.

Here a little sneak peak for you.
