Big News

Thinking of something as an unforeseen event typically evokes negative connotations for me, as the past couple years have been full of some pretty painful surprises. Usually when this phrase comes up, it is accompanied by some terrible news, more horrendous than even the previous hardship. Well, time continues on and now change is in the air, pushed gently ahead by the cool breeze of a new season, straight into what could very well be the next chapter in my life. Suddenly I find myself face to face with another unforeseen event, but this time, it’s so fantastical I can hardly believe it’s true. The surprise is similar, but the accompanying joy is completely unfamiliar. Good luck is not something I tend to have in abundance, if at all, but now it seems as though I’ve won the lottery. However, my prize is far greater than any sum of money.

You may have already noticed some changes taking place here, namely in the frequency of my posting. Priding myself on taking no breaks, posting almost everyday, it would appear as though I’ve started slacking. Truly, it’s quite the contrary; I’ve been working around the clock, with scarcely a moment to complete my homework! Countless hours have been spent slaving away in the kitchen, even more so than usual, because… Well… I can’t believe it myself, but I’ve been working on recipes for my own cookbook of vegan desserts!

When I was first approached by Alisa of Go Dairy Free about this possibility, I was incredulous, to say the least. I still am. Honestly, the timing has been so perfect, it’s an absolute dream come true – Just days before receiving her first email, I had been musing aloud to my mom about how much fun it would be to actually compile my recipes for a book. A real book, a published book… It doesn’t even sound like a reality yet!

So please bear with me if I don’t have as many new posts available for your reading pleasure, but rest assured, I’m still crafting like mad despite my baking frenzy. For now, I’ll leave you with just a few teasers of what you can expect to find in my book…
