Hey there! It’s been awhile! Like almost a whole year… but who’s counting? I’ve had the occasional person ask if I would be posting new stuff and apparently I’ve had a handful of viewers here and there while I’ve been away (hi! thanks for checking in!). Truth is, this blog was really time consuming when I was trying to update it multiple times a week. And as much fun as cooking is, it’s less fun to sit at a computer and write about it after 50 hours a week of sitting at a computer and typing.
ANYWAY, long story short – I want to post stuff here and there when I try something out that’s just too amazing not to share.
Oh, and in case you didn’t know I happened to move in the past year, like 3,000 miles away, to CALIFORNIA! There are so many exciting things happening out here, and it is so much different than Virginia! So my thoughts are, if I eat something, see something, do something, or cook something awesome while I’m here I want y’all to be able to experience it with me (and no, I will not be dropping the “y’all” any time soon – it takes me back to my Virginia roots!).
The move itself took us 6 days by Penske truck, which was an adventure in and of itself. We went through Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada before finally making it to our new home in Southern California. It was stressful, still is a bit terrifying, and is probably the best thing we could’ve done at this point in our lives.
As you can see above, we’ve only been here a month, but it’s been a fun time – I found my new favorite sparkling sake, we visited friends at the Newport Beach Marina, took a trip to the Angel City Brewery (where I could spread my wings), ate delicious sushi at SOTA, and I had a chance to hang out with my dad at the Anza Borrego desert for the Perseid meteor shower (we stayed up most of the night and watched the sunrise).
I’m sure more adventures are in store and I can’t wait to share them with you, so check back soon!
