Recipe for Happiness

April 24th, 2007 · 5 Comments

I apologize for being M.I.A. for so long but I think I have a sufficiently good reason to explain my prolonged absence from blogging. It involves several major life changes: quitting my job, traveling to Thailand, moving to New York City to pursue a career in food, and getting engaged.

Phew, 2007 has indeed been off to a busy start!

My three month stay in New York involves a part-time position with a fun start-up chocolate company called sweetriot, a ‘stage’ (pronounced, ‘stahj’) at one of New York’s most reputable restaurants, and a culinary course where I hope to hone and perfect my kitchen skills.

I have to admit, I couldn’t be happier with the new direction my life has taken and I plan to blog about it all!

    I cannot tell you how happy I am for you! I know that you were busy with all the changes going on so I was avidly waiting for you to put up your post updating everyone on all the changes.

    Congratulations, my friend!

    I can’t wait to hear more about your job and your stage … oh yes and your trip to Thailand!

    And the engagement!!!

    One more thing, I know you e-mailed me about chestnut flour and I apologize for not getting back to you … I’ll e-mail you shortly!

    A hug from me!

    Hi Geneve,
    Your mom gave me your web site to
    see, wow it’s pretty good, now I will be
    seeing to get ideas for my cooking.
    Do you have suggestion on recipes
    for people who need to eat a lot of
    green vegetables for low immune
    systems like mine.

    Also congratulations on becoming a
    chef, your mom send me a foto
    and you look so beautiful. In case
    you are wondering who I am. I am Miriam Rivas I was the lady who was married to the Swiss Society of Boston President, the tall dirty blond man, Ferdinand.
    I have a Daughter who’s name is Sandra F Kurt. If you like to come to Orlando you’re always welcome. She is temporarily at home helping me and going to Univ. of Central Florida for her Masters in Leadership and Higher Educ. Administration. This
    will enable her to be a Director in any
    College or Univ. Dept. or a Dean.

    Best wishes,
