in which she cleanses the palate

After I recovered from my sugar hang-over due to many and varied cupcake testing episodes this last week [the peanut-butter-cream filled chocolate ones with ganache frosting just about killed me with guilty pleasure - recipes forthcoming to those who want them when all is said and done] I want to take a moment to introduce a second brand spanking new blog I just started yesterday...

It is called simply de.lite.ful, named after a cookbook that I am writing with my mom. After you've had your fill of cupcakes this Valentine's it might be time to turn your attention to the healthier side of things for, mmmm, maybe a day or two, hee hee. The blog will provide recipes that are healthy and taste great. The book, due out later this year, will do the same and also briefly tell the story of my mom's journey to a healthy lifestyle after finding out that she had incredibly high cholesterol. The book will be mostly recipes and will give helpful information about how to prepare healthy food that you can actually enjoy eating, either all the time, like my mom, i.e., medically necessary, or just now and then, like me when I need to purge myself of holiday gluttony, i.e., trying to be smart and responsible. I figure most of us fit into one of the two categories, no?

We've had so many requests for the book thus far, that we thought a blog would be useful and fun until the book is actually here. At this point, we plan to post weekly with something delish to offer and hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Suggestions, feedback, and comments are welcome since we want to make this as geared toward others' needs and wants as we can while accomplishing a formal roadmap, if you will, of how my mom has created a cuisine that even her grandkids will eat and enjoy! She serves her recipes at get togethers and large functions, all to rave reviews.

So, with that said I will forward you on to the site at www.simplydeliteful.blogspot.com. We would be tickled pink if you thought enough of the idea to spread the word near and far. Thanks for reading!

That is so great! I think that is really wonderful that you and your mom are writing a book like that together. Kudos :)

I want Alice to come and make the recipes for me. I'll pass the beautiful and inspirational site along.
