Some people never want to grow up and most of us certainly do not want to grow old (at least not after we have turned 21), but like most things in life, aging is what you make of it. Black Eyed Susan's Kitchen came into existence on July 1, 2007, so I am a bit shy of seven years writing about this and that. By the statistics, I have written 575 posts and have read through 8,342 mostly kind comments.
It has been my pleasure to write seasonally about gardening at the Jersey Shore and I have enjoyed having the opportunity to introduce my readers to some unusual crops. Horseradish, from previous years and posts being one of them.
Some of the posts were full of family, and some were nature oriented, like the summer I became obsessed with photographing a hornets nest.
My favorite posts were and have always been food oriented. Whether I was chronicling a festival, restaurant meal, cooking class, or photographing a meal cooked on my own stove, there was always a little more passion put into these posts.
It became a logical conclusion that in my blogging career, I would start to write food-centric articles.
The decision has been made to begin a somewhat local to the Jersey Shore new blog that is specific to food, restaurants, chef's, cooking classes, food shops, and the best of home made and home grown.It will be an adjunct to Black Eyed Susan's Kitchen called Flavor Chronicles/ Chefs in Motion and I hope that you will enjoy it as much as you have enjoyed this blog. The new blog will begin on April 1, 2014 and pay tribute to one of my favorite chefs in this area. A chef so esteemed, that after his untimely death, people still talk about him in whispers and reverential tones. The post that I wrote about Joe Romanowski can be found here. I will be at The Recipe for Success benefit on March 31st and will post the experience at the new blog page, so stay tuned.
Please join me in my search for the who, what, and where of delicious happenings at the Jersey Shore and wherever my travels might take us.
