This is a hard one to write. I have to leave you all for a little while. Writing this blog is one of the greatest joys of my life. Not only is it a way to connect with my scattered family and friends, but I have also made so many new friends from all over the world. A family medical emergency that will take all of my energy is going to take me away for possibly several months, but I promise you I will be back. The Culinary Cellar is also undergoing lots of changes, and it will also come back better than ever. There will be lots of surprises in the future!
This does not mean I will not be able to read emails, in fact, I would be sad not to hear from everyone. I just can’t be here on a daily basis. Please continue to email me at [email protected] and you will probably see me pop up here and there on facebook and twitter, too.
So far, I have written almost 1,000 blogs, so if you are new here, there is plenty of back reading to do! For my old-timers who have faithfully been with me from the beginning over two years ago, go back and start from the first blog! I bet there are lots of things you have forgotten. You can also go read my daughter Kristina’s wonderful cooking blog, http://www.betterrecipes.com/blogs/daily-dish/, where she has great recipes, stories, and fabulous giveaways every week.
This is not good-bye, it’s I’ll see you later. In the meantime, I hope you find some great cookbooks and will write and tell me about them, cook a lot of great meals, and give your family and friends big hugs every single day.
