Dear Blog. It really is nice to see you. It has been such a long time! So much has changed since we last spoke. Because there have been some major changes around here, Blog, and I got to be honest, this affects you too. We need to talk. I have a confession to make.
I have gone...
Dun Dun DUNNNNNNNN
This is actually very similar to the conversation I had with one of my closest friends about a year ago. She lives a few hours away. Life had been busy for both of us and we weren't talking as regularly as usual. She was home for Thanksgiving and we were out to lunch.
Avid lovers of goat cheese, bacon and gelato, we shared many a beautiful moment appreciating delicious dishes together. And I had to tell her that I was now vegan.
It was actually akin to breaking up with someone. I had to prepare myself for the inevitable heartbreak that I would undoubtedly cause. I said I had something to tell her, and she wasn't going to like it. After the initial shock of realizing that our food sharing ways may have come to an end and explaining the reasons why I chose to do this, our friendship has survived, of course.
One thing that didn't survive the vegan shock is this blog. I completely stopped posting. Vegan cooking was all new to me. After many failed experiments and just as many triumphs, I finally feel confident enough in this new style of cooking to start posting my favorite new recipes.
My revamped blog will have recipes, restaurant reviews, and other useful tips and tricks for vegan and gluten free cooking. I am truly amazed at the delicious food that I am still able to eat and I hope to share what I have learned with anyone who needs it!
