Again



Here I am again.

Nearly a month since my last post, my last cookies and, actually, a month, or even more, since I baked anything sweet. (Apart from the day we went for a picnic with friends and I promised to bring a cherry tart. A mighty good tart, I must say. I don't know how I managed not to ruin it, but I did). Here I am again.

Cooking hasn't been much present lately. The only things I've been making are salads, not so thrilling ones, bread, because I have to, roasted vegetables, because I have a toddler to feed, and sometimes, when I'm feeling really good, a soup.

I wish I could tell you that I am as excited about fresh vegetables and silky tagines and rustic dishes as I was before, but honestly I am not! My burners are off most of the day and the only things that get me excited recently are crusty bread, milk, juicy peaches and my bed.

I hope to get back on my feet pretty soon and be able to appreciate my cuisine as I used to; until then I hope you are all well and content.

And, as always, thank you for your support, for your words. Thank you for just being here.

Warda

Hi Warda. I still remember the fabulous fundraiser you hosted a summer back with the sweet couscous dessert. Take care and I hope you feel better soon.

Hello, just want to say: you inspire me. I make your recipe for yellow squash fritters with mint and harissa every month! I LOVE them. Even when you don't post, there is so much here to enjoy. Feel better soon.

Dawn said...

oh I hear that loud and clear. I am taking a break too. I miss it, I don't miss, but I do. So for now I am away, but still cooking.
Enjoy your time away....

You are more important than your blog (which, by the way, is wonderful). Take care of yourself, and let others take care of you, too. -- Jean

I found your food blog going through a few links. Glad I ran into it. Didn't know that the food blog community was so big. I love your posts!

I was wondering if you would like to exchange links. I'll drop yours on my food blog and you drop mine on yours. Email at ramendays@yahoo.com or stop by my site and drop a comment. Let me know if you would like to do a link exchange.

Cheers,
Caleb

P.S. I hope you feel better and come back stronger than ever!

Make the most of the rest... the worst you can do is feel the need to apologize for needing it.

Molly Loves Paris said...

Warda, you've been sick too long. You MUST find out what's wrong. I will be praying for you.

Anja said...

I hope you are doing' better. We don't know each other but I like your blog very much... greetings

Warda said...

- I realize I've worried many of you wit this post, and I am so sorry. I feel selfish for posting it...
I am doing much, much better. It was nothing too serious and nothing uncommon. It turns out that resting has helped me a lot.
Thank you all for your prayers, and for your support.
Love,
Warda

Maureen said...

Be well Warda. I wish you new energy. Rest as much as you need and your body and soul will know when to re-enter 'the world'.

Happy Ramadan!

DeliciosoMama said...

Hope you are feeling better...I remember having seasons like this when my three children were little...and sometimes when they all converge on our home at the same time, I begin to recall those feelings....
Do take one step at a time, appreciate each moment in your life and know to each season comes new beginnings and renewed strength..
