Is anybody out there?

Why, hello there! I know I said I wasn't abandoning my dear old blog.... but I did. I took a ridiculously long extended break, but I had a really good excuse reason. I promise! I was telling the truth in my last post; my busy season at work was kicking my butt and I just didn't have the time (or enough air conditioning) to slave over a hot stove. Then something happened....

Yes, that's right. There was a Baby D on the way! Although I was lucky enough not to have any strong aversions to foods (although I couldn't get near my husband for at least thirty minutes after he would brush his teeth... random, right?) I lost all motivation to cook, bake and find new recipes. When I finally found some energy, I didn't feel like making anything new. All I wanted to eat was fried chicken (I accidentally just typed "friend" chicken. Freudian slip, maybe?), lasagna and oreos (the baby needed them). Then in March, we met the most amazing little boy. Dear readers, I would like you to meet our newest foodie, Eli (at two weeks old):


The last seven months have been an incredible whirlwind, but new recipes once again took a back seat. Now that both Justin and I are back at work, things are starting to return we are finding our new normal. This means, I have been back in the kitchen, finding time for cooking, baking and the latest addition: baby food! I look forward to once again sharing new recipes with all of you who have stuck with me, and hopefully we will find some new readers along the way. I will be back on Monday with a brand new recipe to get things rolling. (Really, I promise!) And if you are still mad at me, just look at this face.


Still mad? :) Mrs. D is back! Feel free to leave comments to say hi and let me know if there is anything you would like to see on the blog!

Congrats on the BEAUTIFUL baby!! And I so know what you mean about the baby needing oreos. I've severely neglected my blog this year for the same reasons (my LO is 4 months now) and I swear he lived on Oreos in the womb!
