On Vacation!

I have given myself permission to go on vacation for a week so there will be no regular post Thursday.  If you don’t know me, this is a big deal for me but the last six weeks have been very hectic and I need a little time to recoup!

There are changes coming in 2013 and I hope you will like them.  I am still working through the timetable to introduce  a new blog –  ”Pastries Like a Pro”   which will follow the writing of the upcoming books and general pastry making.  Pastry is my strong suit and what I love the most so it seems natural to go in that direction.  I hope all of you will join me.  I will continue The Ardent Cook for a while longer.  Stay tuned and by all means, let me know what you think.

Also, I would appreciate it very much if you would like  Marketing is going to be the real challenge with this book and this will help.

Look for Hungarian Goulash and Creamy Polenta with Asiago and Roasted Red Peppers January 10th – after my short vacation.
