Without further ado, I will finally begin getting around to all the stories I have to tell. Unfortunately, it’s been a long time since I provided consistency to my blog, chefNia*. I am happy that I’ve found a new outlet to express myself without any HTML and CSS problems. Thank God, I brought Simple Caprese Salad with me to cure the blog hiatus woes.
To be honest, I was SO sad to have to let go of something I put so much heart & soul into but I don’t have to let go completely. I am giving it another breath of fresh air and life. This has another shine of light from a part of me I didn’t even know was in me.
There was so much for me to share and so much on my chest. I told myself that I couldn’t make up lost time. I was convinced that this was the end of an era. I believed it was over for chefNia*. Now that God smacked me upside the head (LOL) and told me I was being crazy and irrational. This is a new chapter, not the end. This is the transition into a new era for me. I am releasing a part of me I had never shared.
This is me! Oh, and here’s a salad. An Italian favorite converted to a supreme salad; from the pesto dressing to the fresh mozzarella, the Simple Caprese Salad will fill your every craving.
