Warning – Detour Ahead

1 Aug

Do you see that moving van parked out in front of Exit 51?  It’s waiting for me to finish packing up the boxes of as yet, unpublished posts, so they can be moved to their new home.

Back when I started Exit 51, I had no idea that it would end up being about food.  It was just something to keep me occupied while SFC was gone and I figured I would stop posting when he got back.  But like I’ve said here before, you start in one place, finish in another, and have countless intersections, detours, and exit ramps along the way.  This is just one of those detours.

I’m not moving far, just a click away to Bon Appetit Hon.  Exit 51 will still live on here.   And there will be links back to it since part of moving forward is always remembering where you’ve been.  I hope you’ll follow along and see where this journey takes us.

The kitchen here at Exit 51 may be closed but there’s a seat the table for you at BAH.  Pull up a chair, make yourself at home, and Bon Appetit Hon.

Julie & Julia

Did you think that I would not eventually get around to talking about this?  The movie trailer has made its way across the Internet and the movie opens soon.  So I guess it’s about time for my two cents on the whole Julie/Julia thing. Continue reading

Countdown Commencing

14 Jul


In less than a month we pack up and head across the pond on holiday.

In honor of the occasion, I have created all whole new set of travel themed banners for Exit 51 that I will be posting to the site over the next few weeks.  If you’re reading this via Facebook, click here to head on over and see what the heck I’m talking about.

And if you’ve got any special recommendations for London, Bruges, or Normandy, I’d love to hear them.

Screen Grab from Bitten

Screen Grab from Bitten

As if there were a shortage of websites to consume my daytime productivity, I had to stumble across this post on Bitten where Mr. Bittman opened Pandora’s Box.  It was a simple enough question, what food blogs are people reading.  In the seven days between when this post went up and when I read it, 619 comments had accumulated.  Want to guess how long it took me to take a look at the sites that people recommended?  Go ahead, guess.

Will somone please tell me which kitchen god I need to pray to in order to make these beauties my own?  For the life of me, I cannot explain why I am obsessed with these mini-cocottes.  Lord knows I don’t have anywhere to store them, and there are much larger items on the priority list right now.  But these just look so damn happy.

In a perfect world, both my kitchen and my bank account could accommodate this.  For the time being, they are just one more item on my wish list.
