Secret Cupid!

I got my secret cupid gift today!  Olga @ Healthing It sent me the most amazing surprise gift –


The Asian Vegan Kitchen by Hema Parekh.  This is the most thoughtful and sweet present.  Thank you so much Olga!  The book has 9 different sections – India, Japan, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Burma, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Korea.  I am SO excited to use this cookbook in my menu plan for the upcoming week.

Olga picked this book before I announced my macrobiotic experiment, but this is the PERFECT accompaniment to my new diet.  I adore Asian cuisine, and if I had to pick one cuisine to eat for the rest of my life – you bet it would be Asian!

I also did some blog work today and updated my About Me page. Check it out if you’d like and feedback is always welcomed.

    Yummy looking book!
    I just read your bio and story. Wow. It is easy to see that although Cornell is a wonderful place it is also pretty stressful for people.
    Nice to know you better. 🙂
