A little update!

4 May

I’ve taken a little hiatus it seems! April got a bit hectic with my daytime job, the wrap-up of Start From Scratch classes, the passing of my grandmother on April 10, 2012 and a spontaneous trip to Vancouver (first time I’ve ever been there!) where I met two longtime Twitter friends, Ethan Adeland and Melissa Hartfiel, in real life.

My grandma was 95.5 years old and was a constant part of my life. I remember so many things about my grandma, particularly cooking with her while she babysat me (she lived two blocks away for most of my life). I remember her friends coming over and all of us forming an assembly line for perogies (Russian-style they’re small, stuffed bread), cabbage rolls, homemade cottage cheese, borscht, and so many other things. She was of the ilk that if your plate was empty you needed more food (even if you were stuffed to the brim).

Over the next few weeks I’m going to post some of my favourite recipes from her. So stay tuned! I’m still here. 🙂
