changes underway

I am going to possibly pull a Ryan Adams and call this my last blog post about food ever... only to come back to food blogging a month later. Not really. But I am announcing that my heart is no longer in it in this way. It's not that I am not still inspired everyday about food and cooking and ingredients and traveling and Italy. Not at all, and I still do most of those things.

It's just that the format of the food blog no longer inspires me and I believe I have much more to give in terms of verbally expressing myself. I have interests and opinions that go beyond the parameters and limitations (and dare I say, solipsism?) of writing about and photographing the food I make. It's time I start to explore those other venues. I hope it will produce a much more meaningful outpouring of ideas, one that I enjoy writing as much as someone may enjoy reading. There are plenty of other food bloggers out there to tow the line, some of them actually good.

But for now, the changes are coming and I hope they will be posted soon. So please do check back and thanks for reading this amateur experiment I've entertained for the last year and some change.

This chick is out searching for more passion and is looking forward to seeing what will hatch. Happy Spring!


  1. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  2. Joy, I so understand what you mean. I look forward to seeing what comes of your search.

  3. Sorry to hear you are stopping the blog! It allowed me to stay in touch with you by peeking into your culinary life from time to time :-) But I am confident you are going to find an even better way to get inspired and inspire us to enjoy food and company (and Italy of course). Buona fortuna!!
