The weekly special

Why don't you try a big, heaping platter of The Big Link?


An announcement, and a helping of Big Link

Well, I mentioned that I had an announcement, and now that JR has made it public, I guess I can let my both of my readers know: Sometime in the next couple of weeks, I'm going to start doing this cooking blog for the News & Record, under a different name: Mel's Kitchen. I'll let you know when it happens and what the link will be. Hope to see you there!

Now that the excitement is over, check out The Big Link.


Comfort food, with The Big Link on the side

I finished reading the latest Harry Potter book. I got it last night after work, and I read til 5 a.m. Woke up, finished it about 1:30 today. And after the sobbing and crying had subsided, I really needed some comfort food. So I whipped up a batch of biscuits and gravy and tried not to think about it. My husband (who had held me and rubbed my back during the really bad parts in the book) immediately recognized it as such -- he can always tell when I'm in a bad or sad mood by what I'm cooking. Such an amazing book, though -- her best yet.

I've slowed down on posting a lot because I've been waiting for the right time to make a big announcement concerning this blog. It looks like that might take another week or two, though. Meanwhile, check out The Big Link.

My "kitchen personality"

According to the Food Network, my kitchen personality is "Country and Comfort."
Your kitchen personality reflects a sense of comfort and charm. You seek a cozy and inviting look for your kitchen and want guests to feel at ease in it.
And sure enough, the pictures of examples of this are ones I adore. There's just something about copper pans hanging from the ceiling that makes me want to cook.

It's time, once again, for The Big Link.
