Change Is In The Air!

Dear followers of the Adirondack Baker Blog,

Yesterday marked five years since this blog's first post. It's quite a milestone, one that I've anticipated with a lot of thought about what this blog is, what it does, and how it serves its readers. It's been a wonderful experience, one I hope to build on in a very positive way.

Today I announce that I am formally starting to write my cookbook, an anticipated  year-long project that will build on the foundation of 5 years of my ADK Blog, with the addition of tested recipes from contributors and other sources. This will be a narrative cookbook, where the story, family tradition, and history of a recipe take center stage, followed by the recipe itself.  And there will be photos, lots of delicious photos. I have lots of ideas about how it will all take shape, and I promise that I will put my heart and soul into it!

You will continue to see posts from Adirondack Baker on my fb pages and linked on the blog itself, but they will be re-posts of favorite recipes and stories from the past five years. I hope you enjoy them again, or for the first time. I'll update you regularly on the progress of the cookbook project. 

I'd love to have your support and encouragement (and recipes!) as I dive in head first! It's daunting and exciting. Stay tuned, it will be great to have you all along for the ride!

Thanks everyone!

Jeannie O'Farrell Eddy
