Sorry for the long blogging absence, but marriage, moving, and the holidays conspired to keep me away from Tasting Serendipity. Now, I'm back and have made a new New Year's resolution: 2009 will be the year of the blog. I'm aiming for at least one post per week to start with more to follow if this goes well. As a newly wed working from home, my dining out has been limited and sporadic, so to achieve the resolution, I am expanding the scope of the blog. For starters. serendipity can certainly be found outside the walls of a restaurant. I'm having a lot of fun trying recipes at home and inventing new dishes. There is a whole new (much more economically feasible) world in these kinds of posts. I'm also going to try and take more pictures. More pictures equals a more fun looking blog. There may also be guest posters in the future who contribute experiences abroad and at home. I have many other blogging friends and should really be collaborating with them. Ok, that's all for now. Blogging this week has been accomplished! 'Til next week, happy eating!
