I’ve been away from this blog for so long, I feel terrible.
I have a million ideas for posts, but can’t seem to take any photos in a timely manner, so the posts don’t get written even if I’ve put them all together in my head. I have a feeling I’ll be writing plenty once the book deadline has passed (a few more weeks) so look for a lot of new recipes coming soon.
Do you love hydrangeas? I think they’re the best. If you have them in your yard, or pick up a bouquet at the market, I’ll bet you’ve had this experience. You gleefully display a few of those pink and blue puff balls in a vase only to find a bouquet of limp, pitiful flowers a few hours later.
Dip the cut end of the hydrangea stem in a cup of boiling water for 15 seconds. Then go ahead and put the flowers in the vase filled with clean, cool water. The flowers will last for days.
Leave a comment, say hello, tell me what you’re cooking these days. On July 1st, to celebrate turning in three (out of four!) chapters of the book, I’ll use Randomizer to select a winner from the comments. What’s the prize? A box of delicious from my pantry. Expect to receive six jars – jams, sauces, pickles, and more. Yes, it’s a bribe, but it’s a tasty one.
Evidence. Four days of hydrangeas (and a rambunctious lily.)
