Today I came to the belated realization that Apricosa's one-year anniversary slipped by a week ago! Over this past year, I have loved having the opportunity to share with you some of my favorite dishes. I love the beauty in the colors, smells, textures, and tastes that surround the making and eating of good food. And I love connecting with people in the context of this beauty. While I haven't had the chance to cook for most of you in person, it is my hope that the stories, pictures, and recipes here have blessed and inspired you in your own culinary endeavors.
I just wish I could spend more time cooking, photographing, writing, blogging... But, the reality is that there is this beast in the corner called "Grad School" which just won't go away, and I have my duties towards it. Though the beast promises to lurk about a while longer, I will continue to keep checking in here, posting more great recipes whenever I have a chance! This blog has been such a welcome creative outlet for me, counterbalancing all those hours I spend in front of a microscope in my windowless biology lab. (Yes, my lab is located in a beach-front building. No, I do not see the light of sun all the work-day long. But that makes Apricosa, and the light-filled photos on it, all the more special to me.)
Well, if you have been following my posts here at Apricosa, I want to let you know that it totally makes my day when I get comments from readers. Seriously! For me, the enjoyment that I get out of all of this is really because I get to share this with you, and having your feedback makes it all the more fun. On the occasion of this one-year mark, I am especially curious to hear from you about what your favorites on Apricosa have been? I invite you to browse throught the past year's postings! What is your favorite photo? Favorite story? Favorite recipe? Do you like the savory dishes best? Or the sweets even more?
