Spring has sprung and hibernation time is over. After a few months of downtime considering whether to continue this blogging thing my need to write has fired back up and I'm ready to rejoin the Internet. In order to stoke the fire a bit this year I am going to change up my format a little and expand my horizons. I've tried to make BBQ the axis on which this little blog turns. While that might be enough for some it is not enough for me. I'm going to throw open the gates and write about whatever is on my mind with regard to food and restaurants. This should result in a few more restaurant reviews and substantially more recipes. Books are going to make a debut this year. I also plan to pen a series of posts entitled "On Blogging" that will explore some of the challenges faced in running a blog and being a part of the food and foodie community. Hopefully I haven't lost too many of you in my self-imposed Internet exile and hopefully we will pick up a few new readers with the new format.
