I feel like it's been forever since I've sat down at the computer and just wrote to you guys. As you can imagine, there's been a whirlwind of activity around here for the past 6 months, and I finally have a few quiet hours to chill in the morning light and just say hey. The manuscript for my cookbook is in the hands of the publisher and very soon I'm going to get the edits back then the whirlwind of activity will resume - except this time I'll also be working a few days a week at my pastry chef gig and the phrase "how am I going to do it all?" flits in and out of my mind on a loop. But, as they say, we shall cross that bridge when we come to it.

You guys! I did it! The manuscript and photographs for my first ever cookbook are now at the publisher’s and I’m still kinda in shock that hey, I just wrote a cookbook. No big whoop. Except of course, it is. A very big whoop. I’m still kinda processing the whole experience, really. When people ask what it was like, all I can say is that I loved it. So much. Even the parts where I had to wash dishes until midnight, only remembering then that I never even brushed my teeth that day. Such was the life! I want to talk more about it later, after I’ve kinda calmed down a bit, but today, I’m spilling the beans on these really, really good tacos I made my mom went I went to visit her last week.
