This week begins my second month as an Allrecipes Allstar Brand Ambassador. I have to say that it has awakened a part of me that has been hiding for a long time. My love of cooking has always been present, but I now
feel that I am in better company than I had ever imagined.
So, I begin this post with thanks. Thanks to ilkaisha for bringing this wonderful concept to my attention. She and I have worked together as writers, and since we share a passion for cooking, she felt that I would like to join in the Allrecipes fun. She was
correct. So, thank you, my friend, for putting the bug in my ear.
To Ivory @ ar and others at Allrecipes, allowing me to join the ranks of the Allstars. What fun this has been – and we’re only in February! This single opportunity has opened my eyes and mind to the endless possibilities of being able to express myself through
the artful crafting of solutions to a universal need: the need for food.
To the AR Facebook gangs Across America and the Southern Region. Several individuals, including Baking Nana, witchywoman, jrbaker and others have included me in their circles, where I can listen in on their own unique perspectives and glean just a little of
their wisdom. I thank you.
To the AR Buzz denizens: My first request of a recipe resulted in a number of wonderful responses from a variety of people. Some had recipes; others just wanted to say, “welcome!” Thank you so much for the greetings! I am heartily impressed and look forward
to spending more time at the Buzz!
With that said, I have to admit that I’m just a little daunted by this month’s assignment. That doesn’t mean I can’t do it; I just haven’t figured out what to create, yet. I suppose I will figure it out soon enough. I’ll be posting on my public blog (My
Life with Noofs) with a slightly different update and a humble request for ideas!
This weekend was one of leisure that I haven’t experienced in quite some time. I spent more time in the kitchen this past weekend than I had all week. I made a couple of wonderful meals and baked for both people and
I have been working as a freelance writer for going on three years, but have recently accepted a temporary assignment writing web content for a state government agency. Freelancing is a wonderful way of life, but there
are times when I wish for a regular 9-5-type gig. This opportunity came up quite unexpectedly, and since I needed a break from the round-the-clock workday, I took it. This will only last a few months, which will be time enough for me to start wishing I could
work from my home office again. For now, I am enjoying my free time in the week before I start my new gig. Methinks that I need some new clothes – my freelance dress code includes fuzzy slippers. ;-)
