the secret is out

by jenna on July 25, 2011

I have news!

…something I’ve been bursting at the seams to tell you all months ago but had to keep my big mouth shut! (just so everyone knows, I’m great at keeping secrets)

I’ve partnered with PBS to bring you another recipe blog of sorts. Because after all this, I still don’t think you know what you want for dinner. A girl can never have too many options (the same thing goes for shoes. obvi).

Nothing is going to change on this blog, of course, but now every week I’ll be posting a new recipe on the PBS Fresh Tastes blog as well. I might as well just start sleeping in my ruffled apron. Would that be weird?

So…check it out! I can understand if you’re sick of me though. Next thing you know, I’ll be ringing your doorbell with an empty bowl asking to borrow a cup of sugar. And while we’re at it, can I also borrow those heels? You know, the really shiny black patent leather ones?

Let’s be friends forever.

Ditto. You do work for what you get and what you got Jenna. So revel and enjoy it.

…I don’t know how you can be around food all day though!! Do you ever get sick of it then when you have to , y’know, eat and stuff for yourself? ;) Seriously though!! A lot of cooks and chefs prepare fancy or nice food all day – and then admit to going home and just throwing together something simple cause they don’t want to be at it!
