Spreading My Wings........and crossing my fingers!

Even though I'm admittedly the world's laziest blogger, or at least the laziest one I know, I've had a lot going on on the cooking front lately. I've done more "free" catering as a way to get my food out there, and today...just NOW, in fact...I created a Facebook page for my fledgling business.

I know it's not much, but it's a start, right? Between this hobby blog and my regular Facebook page, I've uploaded enough food pics to either entice or bore everyone I know, so I figured it was time I increased my audience! There's a whole world of people out there to entertain, bore or feed, after all!

And so it begins.............again

Wow, I can't believe how long it's been since my last post! I thought having a job sitting at a computer all day would be conducive to my writing...I could just bang out quick posts here & there in my downtime, but as it turns out it had the opposite effect! Not only have I NOT taken advantages of the spaces between tasks, when I get home the last thing I want to do is get back to work on a computer...what's a lazy blogger to do?

Guess the only thing I really can do is to pick back up and get better about keeping my blog updated, yes?

Since there's no time like the present, I have several new projects I want to share with you....I have been a very busy girl! A few months back, I was asked if I had any interest in catering end-of-program receptions at my local meditation center, The Shambhala Meditation Center of Atlanta.

The first couple of receptions I catered, I kept it simple - mainly because I just wanted to get a feel for it and to see what people tended to like or dislike. I made mostly vegetarian stuff like



Zucchini Boats

and various other dishes...which were all good, but then I discovered that several of the teachers and participants were vegan and a few had gluten allergies and/or sensitivities.

I began to experiment with recipes that catered more to their special needs. The challenge has been to find a way to prepare them not just healthy, but also delicious...I have embraced this challenge wholeheartedly and the results have been more rewarding than I ever imagined!

I'll put more pics in my next post! Until then............
