News And A Thank You


Guess what? Here’s something fun. I won the Naturalizer Style At Any Age contest.

I know! I’m really pleased, and surprised.

I also need to thank you all so much. Go you guys! And go you so much that I’ll put together the giveaway for 2 pairs of Naturalizer shoes and get it up on the blog, as soon as I extract myself from the current project of Learning To Cook Indian Food.

So far I have determined that dried onion flakes do not like high temperatures. Am about to experiment with processing cooked spinach in the blender. I confess to some trepidation.

Again, thank you. It is such a pleasure to write for you all.

    @Dalit Fresco, The best way to talk about collaborations is on email, if that’s OK with you.

    Let us know how that combination of dried onion flakes and spinach turns out. I understand your trepidation.

    Congratulations on your win. Is there a reason you aren’t substituting onion for the flakes?

    You should be able to blenderize any cooked vegetable as long as you only process about a cup at a time.

    @Wendy Bird, The recipe called for onion flakes, and it was from a friend’s mother’s home cooking, who am I to question?

    May I echo what one of your deft commenters said on another of your social media sites, “You were a shoe-in.” Isn’t that the best? And you WERE, too.

    Yay! All is not right in the world.

    I too wonder why not an actual onion?

    I meant to say all is now right in the world. Sorry, I was distracted by the child across the street screaming bloody murder.

    You’ll have to keep us updated on the Indian cooking project. I’m always a fan of the flavours, but haven’t figured out precisely how to recreate them at home (though the near-misses are quite enjoyable!)

    Congratulations!! My husband gave me a funny look this morning when he heard my enthusiastic response to the Naturalizer announcement. You looked great and I’m happy to have had a small part in this recognition.
