Behind the ScenesAug 10 2012 by
Raise your hand if you swear last week it was only June 1st?! I can’t believe in a little more than 2 weeks school will be back in session! Where did the summer go?
This summer has been one of the busiest on record for me. There has been a lot going on behind the scenes. Just this last month I completed my certificate in Plant Based Nutrition from eCornell – a fantastic program and one I wished everyone was able to take! Kristy and I have also been hard at work completing our first cookbook titled The Burger Book. It will feature over 20 different plant based burgers including sides, condiments and more.
When we first started this project our goal was simply to put together an ebook that we could share with our readers. As fate would have it we were lucky enough to be introduced to a literary agent that was interested in signing with us to help get our book published! We were both excited and shocked at the same time! While we may have spent the last 4-5 months working hard on getting the book completed, our work has just began! We now have the task of putting the finishing touches on the book and working on a book proposal as well.
In addition to all that, I’ve decided to go back to school. My long term goal has always been to bring delicious plant based food to the public. Whether that is through catering, opening a cafe or restaurant or even teaching cooking classes, I thought it would be good to get my degree in Hospitality and Restaurant Management. As I already have my Bachelor’s Degree I can complete this new degree in one year by going full time through the fall and winter semesters. I apparently think I am Superwoman and can do all this while getting a cookbook published, running a blog, homeschooling my kids and managing a household. No sweat, right?!
I know the next few months are going to be crazy and it’s going to take awhile to get used to new schedules and a complete lack of personal time. But I’m up for the challenge and excited to see the results of all this hard work. In the meantime, please bare with us as we start this new adventure. While we’ll do our best to keep sharing delicious plant based recipes with you, it might not be as often as we’d like or are used to.
For now we’re gonna enjoy the last few weeks of summer and next week we’ll be back with some fun recipes for those that are gearing up for back to school! I still can’t believe it’s here!
