Amsterdam: On New Directions, the New Year, and Nostalgia

A year ago today, I was heading to Food Blog Camp and starting a course in Genetics at the alma mater. I went back to school for six months, spent the summer applying, spent the fall freaking out, went to Paris, and now 2011 is over.

The most telling sign that I have no idea about what happened to 2011 is when my day job had some recent major breakdowns. It involved a lot of backtracking and reviewing data. In a discussion, I remarked that one of our molecules was made recently, in June.

Everyone stared at me. Turns out it was June 2010. Wow.

On Resolutions: Guest Posting at Kitchen Corners

Happy New Year.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I don't have my act together enough to post on this blog. I have a post in progress, but catch my first post of the year: a guest post on my favorite salad ingredients over at Kitchen Corners.

Damaris and I met at Food Blog Camp and I was so glad to spend a little time with her this summer before she moved to Brazil. She's an amazing person to chat with and has a great eye for food and design. Check out her beautiful blog and say hello!

Oh, and the anecdote about the maternity pants? Totally true. I definitely need to stick to a diet resolution.
