  1. Virginia, great to see you back blogging.
    How is your recipe book coming along?
    I don’t bake and I don’t like cooking, but I do love to eat.
    The blueberry muffins look yummy! :-)

  2. Hi Tracy, Over the next few days you may get an abnormal amount of blog posts. I am updating my site to include a recipe section. Each time I post, you will get one as I am copying and pasting recipes I am putting up. I have quite a bit done on my cookbook but not enough to do a release before Christmas. Thanks for asking! How is the whimsical illustrating coming along? ;-) -Virginia
