Apologies to those of you who follow this blog. I'm afraid I lost interest when the contract, I was offered from the University of Akron press was withdrawn. I made the mistake of putting all my hopes for the publication of my book on the promises made by that press. But it's a New Year and I'm determined to find a home for my book, even if it means self-publishing.
That being said, we here in northeastern Ohio subzero temperatures for weeks now (Not as much as the people in Boston!), and it's getting pretty old!
I've been involved in a number of projects since I last posted. One of the most fun was The Cookie Table & Cocktail event at the Tyler Mahoning Valley Historical Center. This event brings some of the most talented bakers in the area to compete in categories like " Most Unexpected Ingredient," "Best Traditional Cookie," " Best Decorated Cookie," and many more.
I was lucky enough to be named Cookie Contest Coordinator which put me in touch with the wonderful women and men who do such a beautiful job as homemakers. I enjoyed meeting them, receiving their cookies for judging and, of course, tasting their cookies! For photographs of this amazing array of cookies, .you can follow the link on my blog for the Tyler History Center.
