It has been a very, very long time folks! It has been quite the bumpy ride – in the time since my last post I have changed jobs, moved apartments, turned a year older and have spent far too much time away from this site. In fact, I even tragically allowed my ownership of the URL to expire, and grumpy left my hands for a short while. I was devastated when I lost grumpy. I was an hour late to work because I was crying all morning. There was nothing I could do.
But thanks to some good looking out from Spicy Biscotti, I have reclaimed the site and am making a commitment. I have been doing a ton of cooking since we made the move from a closet-sized apartment into a grown-up living space with a real (albeit small) kitchen with all of the bells and whistles (including a full-sized fridge!!), and it’s time to start sharing the love and the recipes.
I can think of no better way to welcome my favorite season, autumn, with the following few posts. I’ll recap some of my favorite recipes from this summer, share some photos of my first time making the family pepper relish with my Grandma, and start testing all of the seasonal goodness of fall with a pear crisp, smoked haddock chowder, and much more.
It’s good to be back, interwebs!
