I am taking a page from my lovely sister and keeping a blog that I will update more frequently than my travelogue. I will still keep that one (go here to visit) over at travelpod, but have decided that since I am no longer in perpetual "travel mode" that I would like to have a regular blog as well. Traveling will always be a part of my life, but there are other parts of my life I would like to share as well...my new job (more on that later), books I'm reading, places I'm going, etc.
In case you're wondering about calling the blog La Tarte Tatin...well, "C'est la Vie" was already taken! :) La Tarte Tatin is a French dessert--an upside apple cake (think pineapple upside down cake, but with apples, and round). I like "La Tarte Tatin" for a variety of reasons...it's in French, it's one of my favorite recipes I learned while in Cannes, it's a dessert. I mean, what's not to like? Also apples are Washington's largest crop and one of my favorite fruits. Sometime I will make a La Tarte Tatin and take a picture for this blog, but probably not til after I help Holly with all of her recipes for her design project. The story behind the dessert La Tarte Tatin is an intriguing one, and you can read more about it here. It's not exactly a looker of a dessert, but that's one of its appealing qualities to me.
