Happy Weekend

It’s been a little quieter than usual around here because I’ve been working hard behind the scenes to get my site running smoother. I really enjoy crafting and making projects but I feel like I’m not very good at the business side of things like bookkeeping and managing people. The last 6 months I’ve been trying hard to set up a solid infrastructure for my little business. It is slow going sometimes and there is a lot of trial and error but I think we’re getting there. I hope everyone has a happy weekend. We are going to clean the house, celebrate Roman’s birthday and have some friends over for dinner. (I’ve been cooking a lot lately, I have a goal to cook every recipe in this cookbook. It’s perfect for me, simple and seasonal.

    You picked a good cookbook for that goal. I have only made a few things from that one but they were delicious. This is my favorite time of year in the bay area. Hope your city weather is as nice as the east bay.

    That is the best cookbook out there. I’ve owned it for five years now and use it at least twice a week. My husband laughed the other night and said he never would have imagined me whipping up a chateaubriand or a quiche with no fuss like I did last week. It’s all thanks to that book! Enjoy cooking!

    I need to set myself a cooking goal…I have been living off of frozen dinners for the past couple of weeks and I fill not so hot because of it. Thanks for the tip on the book!

    I always remember that you said one time when your blog is rocking it, your house is a mess and chaotic and when your blog is quiet, your house is clean and organized and order is restored (or something like that?). Working for yourself is all about balance, isn’t it? You’re doing a great job! The site is an inspiration to so many people and you make it look effortless so don’t stress too much 🙂

    I second all the things Katy says! Growing pains are always difficult to go through — but the good news is that they mean that you’re growing! You have built such a beautiful site and have a great thing going. You’re an inspiration to your many readers, and I wish you well as you figure out how to best move ahead. High five from Iowa!

    I have that cookbook too! Very simple and tasty. I love the pesto recipe, although I cut the olive oil down a bit. Alice Waters’ tips are really great, like reserving some pasta water to keep the noodles from sticking to each other. Best wishes–I love your blog!

    The view never gets old, no matter how many times I visit it! I lived in the Marina for a few years and even then…I appreciated how good I had every. single. day. Aren’t we lucky?
