PetitChef... Another Foodblogging Community

Our networking has really picked up in the last few days since we joined Foodie Blogroll... Last night we were also approved for and listed on PetitChef, a French-based food blogger community as well. We've also started linking posts to Foodista.Com, so we're breaking out of our shell little by little. We look forward to further networking and more cooking posts once we get back home to Ohio this weekend!

Foodie Blogroll... A Legitimate Recognition of the C.C.?

You may have noticed a new addition to the blog of late (I'll give you a hint... it's in the sidebar and has a tomato on it).

We've been accepted, after undergoing a manual review process over the past few weeks, to be listed on the Foodie Blogroll. We've decided it would be nice to both network with other bloggers who share our interests and to see if we can't exchange some ideas along the way. If you're interested, check the new widget to look at some of the other blogs listed and to view current foodie-centric articles.

We hope you like the network and look forward to exploring it ourselves!

Where the Heck We Are

Howdy, guys.

So it's been a crazy few weeks lately... Torry, Matty and the rest of the family headed to Maine in early June, I headed to Missouri with Erin to do some mission work at a north St. Louis church for a few days, and we then proceeded to travel by way of Boston to now reside in northern Maine ourselves. It's been a lot of traveling but definitely a lot of excitement as well.

I must apologize, as a result, for the lack of entries you've seen lately. I've been on the road, Deering's been working in his chef-ly capacities, and Matty, well, Matty hasn't done much to be honest. I'll get on him about that.

The good news is that we haven't been totally useless... we have been cooking pretty regularly and have a few entries in the works - we simply haven't written them up. I'll hold up my end and write about the stuffed peppers Erin and I made and I know Deering will be writing about a surf and turf creation soon, anyhow.

In the meantime, I am currently working on making possibly our favorite, definitely our most re-created dish so far... the brussel sprouts that don't suck currently. They've been widely successful whenever we have served them in the past... today (being Independence Day - Go USA!!) we will be sharing them for the first time with the members of my mother's side of the family that live here in Maine during our July 4th celebrations. I have no doubts it will be a shockingly different taste for some... even if they don't enjoy them, however, I know I will *shrug*.

Thanks for bearing with us through the tumultuous last few weeks... we'll get back on the writing horse and not get TOO comfy during our vacation. Happy 4th of July!
