Anyway, yes I signed on to cook my way through every Deb Perleman recipe posted on her site, Smitten Kitchen, last year and obviously it did not happen. I am going to childishly point the finger here. I blame this gem:
Seriously, did she not just take your breath away? I'll give you a moment to get it back...better? Not long after starting my cooking extravaganza, I found out I was pregnant with baby #3. Yay! Except this time was different than the first two times around with my boys. Is this nausea? Exhaustion? An aversion to basically all foods? My first two pregnancies were so easy, then this bundle of preciousness came along. I fought for a few weeks, but in the end, throwing in the towel was the better decision. Not with regrets though. I made over 100 of her recipes, exploring cuisine I would have never considered before this challenge, so all was not lost.
Flash forward over a year later. This site hasn't much crossed my mind, if at all. Craving a new blog to follow, I checked out Deb's Good Reads, only to discover I was still on her list. Because of this, this site is still receiving daily traffic. Well that's no fun, checking out a site only to discover it hasn't been updated in over a year. So I thought I would do something about it.
Honestly, I don't exactly have a plan. I don't have a goal in mind, which I like because that leaves the timeline open-ended. All I do know is the cooking will be centered on no other than Deb's fare. Whether that's from her site or this beauty - it will vary. But it will be delicious.
