On behalf of this blog and its owner, allow me to apologize for many months of absence. Allyson, with all her good intentions, simply ignored her blogging responsibilities, and much like a bear in winter, she and her recipe ranging went into hibernation. Oh, wait a minute. Allyson wants me to tell you that she didn't stop cooking; she simply stopped blogging. She also mentions something about a really old computer that tortures her with its slowness and that somehow prevented timely uploads of pictures, Windows functioning at all, and a general humming that sounded like the CPU was going to self-destruct in Inspector Gadget-like fashion. Sounds like a scapegoat of an excuse to me. Regardless, she's back and in full ranging and blogging mode. So, as her faithful companion, I announce that we have mended ways, and we humbly ask you to come along the journey again.
Here's Allyson's pictorial proof she didn't stop cooking all these months, but, as you can see by the simplicity of the "thumbs up/thumbs down" review, she's a bit of a slacker.
