I'm generally optimistic at the beginning of the year, and this is no exception. There has been a lot of change, but I'm one of those people who embrace change. I view it as an opportunity to expand my horizons and learn something new, so I am very excited about getting the print version of Louisiana Kitchen off the ground early this spring.
Of course, it undoubtedly helps that I've been on the launch team of at least half a dozen magazines with readerships ranging from 10,000 to 350,000. I understand the logistics and, unlike some of the geeky computer magazines I've worked on in the past, I really love our subject matter. Stay tuned—we'll post progress here.
I wrote about pasta sauce last week; I prepared it for my nephews Christmas Eve and it was a hit. Even my first generation Italian mother in law voiced her approval. By popular demand you'll find the recipe here; it's not fancy, and I'm sure my chef and cooking friends will have suggestions for improvement, but it's a family tradition with a lot of great memories.
We will return to our normal format after the first of the year; below you'll find links to the ten most popular recipes of the year.
We wish you health, happiness, wealth, and good luck for 2012.
My best regards,
Susan Ford, President
Kitchen and Culture Co.
