A comment popped up on the blog recently, from “A concerned chinesegrandma enjoyer”:
“HELLO CHINESE GRANDMA, HOW ARE YOU? I HOPE YOU ARE WELL. WHAT THE FRICK HAPPENED TO THE WEBSITE?”
Ha. And ouch. I deserve that.
For years I was here for you all with food, guidance and ideas, and then I dropped off without an explanation. It’s a long story, and I’ve been reluctant to post it here, in this little oasis of easy everyday cooking and practical tips. But it weighs on my mind to have left you all hanging.
I keep telling myself I’m coming back to the blog now that I’m feeling better, but I can’t say if that is absolutely true. The last few years have fundamentally changed my relationship to food. I’m still cooking all the time, of course – because no matter how mama feels, people gotta eat. I still find cooking gratifying, and I like passing down knowledge and habits that my children will take with them as they leave home. But my personal experience of food has dimmed after the long health journey I’ve been on.
So…what the frick happened? …
