Still cooking, still eating, still loving it

I've been away from the blog for a while, but not from food, or from sharing my passion with others, which is what I love to do. As a matter of fact "this" has become my full time job for the past 4 years. I have managed the Cooking Demo department of a beautiful Grocery Store in town and have loved it passionately. It sure has kept me busy, though, having consequently to slow down with all of my other activities, to include my private cooking classes, which I have limited to those upon request of my regulars, versus offering group classes at my house like I used to. I still cook and I still love it. One of the things I have recently rediscovered is bread. I used to bake bread a lot, when I was younger, but I somehow had lost it along the way. It's not difficult, but it does take time, which has become a luxury for me, lately. I am very pleased with the result of this going back to my first love, though. The one you see up there and down here is a nice Ciabatta that I have baked in the house. Love my crusty bread! Now life is taking me away from Texas and therefore from my job. I have mixed feelings about it. I know for a fact I am going to miss San Antonio and all the possibilities it has offered me, but at the same time I am welcoming the excitement of a new turn in my life, and, at least for a while, the gift of time, to use for my family and my food. And possibly to come back to this blog a little more often and share my mood through my food with you.
