Personal Update...

If you follow the blog, you have probably been wondering "What has happened to Kristi?" The posts have tapered off drastically in the last little bit, knowing that, I wanted to give my faithful followers an update...

My family and I are in transition. We have just sold a house and are taking a small vacation before relocating. Between the packing, moving and now vacationing -not to mention - the lack of a kitchen...creating and posting have paused. I promise that you have not been forgotten and I will do my best in the coming days and weeks to get some recipes up...

Thank you for your faithful following :0)

Many blessings of Health, Joy, & Happy Eating!
