I thought I would give you a little update on my life…
On several occasions, I mentioned that we were in escrow on a house. It was a long, drawn out process because it was a short sale. The bank that owns the notes on the house finally approved the sale. We did inspections and discovered that the addition to the home was not permitted correctly, was not built to code, and could not be brought up to code without tearing it down and rebuilding it. We decided to withdrawal from escrow. After being in escrow for over 5 months, we are not anxious to start the process over, so we are taking a break from house hunting.
Which leaves me with a void in my schedule where I had planned to finish packing, clean, unpack, and decorate. I am filling that time with several projects.
I launched a new blog about Blogging for Foodies, where I am sharing tips and tutorials to make it easier for foodies to create and grow their food blog by breaking down the process into easy to understand steps. Post topics include:
I am also getting ready to relaunch my gluten-free blog Gluten-Free Flavor Full. While I will continue to share naturally gluten-free recipes here, I will begin sharing my gluten-free baked goods, which require special ingredients, over at Gluten-Free Flavor Full on August 28th. Right now I am working on getting it set up and completing the design.
As if that isn’t enough, I am in the process of writing a Gluten-Free Doughnut Cookbook. It started off small, but it has grown as one recipe leads to another idea. I am hoping to complete this project by the end of the month.
The doughnut recipes in my cookbook range from “Almost Healthy” to “So Completely Decadent – Don’t Eat These for Breakfast!” My family has been faithfully trying each of my recipes, sharing their opinions, and contributing ideas. It is a tough job, but they are up to the challenge. For a preview, you can see the gluten-free doughnut recipes that I have already published on this blog. I must say, it is killing me to sit on recipes, instead of publishing them immediately.
Fortunately, my garden is doing fairly well, so I continue to have recipes that I can share here.
