I have not been able to devote time to taking pictures and writing the recipes in the past month or so... Hope to pick up some of it this month. Super excited about my new Nikon D90. It has taken a lot of work and research to finally get my first DSLR.. and now that I have it, I'm enjoying the learning curve again. Hope you too like the new pictures!
