I’ve just learned two new things. The first thing is about rain. I go running outdoors every day that I can, unwilling to let a single day of the short MN summer go to waste. Before hitting the pavement, I obsessively check the forecast. I’m a compulsive weather-checker. I stalk the doppler radar app on my iphone, ensuring that no storm cell is looming, so I can confidently lace up.
Despite a zero percent chance of rain, I was recently caught in a sudden downpour partway through my run. Not a drizzle. More like a waterfall. With miles between me and home. I finally got home drenched and was greeted by chuckling neighbors and my wide-eyed kids.
Drivers thought I was a hardcore marathon trainer. Um, no. I was fighting the temptation to flag them down for a ride home. But. I learned that unexpected rain isn’t as scary as I thought. Literally and figuratively. And I can check “dance in the rain” off my bucket list, because what I did totally counts.
The second new thing is the launch this revamped site! It’s been months in waiting, weeks in progress, and I’m thrilled about finally introducing it. Whew! I hope you’re having fun around here.
In honor of summer, I’m giving away this beautiful new cookbook, Cool Desserts. Perfect for sunny days! Chef Carla Bardi is the author of this beautiful book, among several cookbooks, while running a vineyard and restaurant in Italy. Her new Cool Desserts book features all the warm-weather desserts you could crave this season!
I love, love this book. Every single recipe is accompanied by mouthwatering photos galore. Each recipe is easy yet impressive. Carla’s collection of recipes is super easy to follow and absolutely gorgeous. I’m pretty sure you’ll adore the style.
