Life in Maine

It's been a while since I've been around. So many fun things have happened, new chapters of life have started, and I've been busy soaking up all the memories. In a walnut shell, I got engaged, said goodbye to my NY life and hello to a new life up in Maine with my hubby-to-be. Fresh-picked lobsters, wild blueberries, a constant ocean breeze, and no more MTA. We've traded crows in the morning for seagulls. I now work at a vineyard with incredible views and some amazing ladies. It's damn near perfection.

The switchover between chapters was incredibly bittersweet, however. I've never lived more than three hours away from home base. I'm now six plus. I miss home and family tremendously. I miss laughing with my old coworkers. (I suppose Maine life will, if nothing else, make me a better communicator.) But it's exciting and I'm learning so many different things about myself and my and Jason's relationship. I've been cooking up a storm these days since I now have a kitchen of my very own. We have access to so much locally grown produce and poultry up here that it's hard not to experiment on a daily basis.

So, to kick off my return to the blogging world, I've listed some of the recipes that are inspiring me these days:
