My posting has been seriously lacking as I've been up to my eyeballs in publishing details - photography expenses and layout concepts, etc. I am taking charge of one of the Junior League's most exciting fundraising opportunities - a new cookbook. The League hasn't created a new cookbook in about 14 years, so I am really excited about putting a fresh spin on a spectacular publication that will represent our organization, our fine city and of course our love of food.
That's why I was in Nashville for a few days last week - the League sent me and our Cookbook Marketing Chair down to a Cookbook Convention who knew those existed? to learn a little - no, a LOT - about this new venture we're taking on. My head is swimming with spectacular ideas and I am excited to share some of them with you over the next year.
The cookbook comes out in Fall 2009 - in the meantime, I am happy to take suggestions, ORIGINAL recipes and other advice from my readers.

My posting may have diminished over the past week, but my ideas have not. Here's a brief rundown of a few things to watch for over the next few days:
1) Mother's Day - The Greatest Gift (I'll forgo the suspense and share with you that Brigid finally got to hold Maeve! The baby has been in intensive care for eight weeks - Brigid has waited a long time to hold her little girl... More on Maeve tonight, but I'll say that she is sloooowly getting better. That's all we can ask for...)
2) You Can't Beat A Southern Boy's Charm - a tale from Nashville
3) A Tale of Two Souls Diverged - two people living the same circumstances with completely different perspectives on life
That's all for now...
