Wait, you didn’t think I got a facelift did you? Shame on you for thinking that… Well, what do you think about the new and improved PrincipeldMom blog?? I am so in love with this theme. Thanks to Andrea for her help getting it up and running. She rocks. And thanks to Jess at Delicious Design Studio for the great template.I will be doing a LOT more writing here this year. I have tons of ideas planned in the way of topics and things to discuss. Also I am planning give-aways and other interactive things.
Speaking of give-aways, Let’s start off the New Year with a fun one. I am giving away this book: I happen to have bought two copies and would like to share my goof up to bless someone. Antonin Careme was the first “celebrity chef” and created French standards like the souffle. The book is sprinkled with 19th Century recipes and his own drawings of elaborate tablescapes. He was not someone to emulate in his personal life but his story is really interesting nonetheless. Please note that this is not a cookbook. Few of these recipes are probably things you would try because we do not eat the same things they did in his day. The recipes are interesting anyway though.
So this book give away will end January 15th CST at 9pm. All you have to do to be entered is to leave a comment and make sure I have a way to contact you. You can enter once a day until then. It would be great if you could spread the word about the giveaway. I promise this year is going to be a blast here at PrincipledMom. God bless you!
