I wrote a long preface to this post, but was told to ditch it.  Too personal, too revealing, too much apologizing and explaining, they said.  So, I gave in and ditched it.  All that matters is that the end is finally here, so let’s celebrate with sandwiches, or wraps.  Did you just hear the dull, hollow thud after I said that?  Yeah, it’s there, an apropos response to sandwiches after 8 months away from blogging, not counting my last post and my brief appearance to pay tribute to my dear, late friend, Lis.

Loaded Chicken or Tuna Salad with Garlic Greek Yogurt Ranch "Mayo"Sloppy and blurry, but oh so good.

For my second post back, I wanted to make something spectacular, and I tried, and I failed…twice.  It was the most disgusting thing I’d ever put in my mouth. Then I felt sick again, so I gave up and made an easy chicken salad, which really isn’t much of a recipe, but it’s the best I can do for now.  Plus, I can sit and chop, so win-win.

Is anybody still out there?  I hope so.

Creamy Tomato Alfredo Linguine. My most requested sauce.

I’m so sorry for my exceedingly long absence from blogging. I truly, truly feel awful about it, and I’m so happy and relieved to finally get something up.  As many of you know (that is, whoever decided to stick around, and again, so, so sorry), I’ve been sick for some time and it’s been extremely difficult to pull off even the most mundane tasks.

I know I haven’t been around in a long, long time, and I do owe you all an explanation, but for now, there’s something more important I need to touch on.  I will be back..and definitely back soon with the end of the BBFL story, but at this moment, I need to talk about a wonderful, amazing lady.

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, when I’ve put up Daring Bakers or Daring Cooks challenge posts, you’ve probably seen me talk about my friend, Lis, on occasion- the co-founder of The Daring Kitchen, – the girl I jokingly referred to as wifeypoo.

Smashed Blueberry Lemon Loaf Cake

I forgot to add the baking powder.  This is why the loaf cake you see, which I made about a month ago, is flat on top.  It was still delicious and moist, but not something I wanted to put up here.  If you recall, I mentioned ‘so-so potential posts’ in my last post. This is one of them, but it’s such a delicious cake (or quick bread, since the method is similar), I didn’t want to hold it back based on aesthetics and making it again just for aesthetics (the last thing I need is more cake lying around – no willpower here.) would have been ridiculous.  We all make mistakes in the kitchen, and this is one of mine.

I annihilated my left wrist last week.  I’m okay outside of pain, a feeling of uselessness, and typing with one hand (poke typing).  If I hadn’t annihilated my wrist, you would be looking at and drooling over (one can hope, right?) a gorgeous, multi-layered cake loaded with texture and cool flavors – and topped with a candle, to celebrate 5 years of blogging.  Well, 5 years plus two or so weeks of blogging.  I can’t even be on time for my blogiversary.

Apparently, it was not to be, and now it’s my 5 year and three or so week blogiversary, so just one yipee.  Celebration over.  I’m sorry, but I’m in pain and I’m pissed.  I’m constantly injuring myself in such stupid ways and not being able to cook or bake is always a bummer.

Tourte Milanese – A Meal en Croute

Remember when I told you about the computer crash of 2011 where I lost almost everything?  It was mainly tons of photos of some of the best goodies I’ve ever made, most of them pretty labor intensive.  You see, I was on this roll from September 2010 to January 2011 – a fancy shmancy crazy roll.  Once or twice a week I was creating showstopping sweet and savory dishes like they were going out of style, and as luck would have it, getting some good clicks of them.

Tourte Milanese - layers of herbed eggs, ham or turkey, cheese and vegetables encased in puff pastry!  A great brunch stunner and easy!

It was an amazing food blog run, and I had about 7 posts lined up.  The posts weren’t written, but the photos were ready – tucked in and snug as a bug in a rug in my photo program waiting until I was ready to write and post.  Then..the crash.
