~ Culinary Q&A & Kitchen Therapy Too (12/31/10) ~

Culinary Q & A #2

It is the last day of 2010 (New Year's Eve)!  It will come as no surprise to you when I say the biggest event of 2010 for me occurred back on August 10th when I published my first post on this blog.  Four and a half months and 102 posts later, I can barely remember my life prior to blogging!

I set out to create a blog for my family, friends and students that would be informative, educational and fun.  I did what I always do:  set the standards higher than I think I can reach, then drive my OCD self crazy until I attain them.  Based upon all of your comments on, interest in, and, literally thousands of "hits" (pageviews) to Kitchen Encounters, while there is always room for improvement, I must be doing something right, so, "thank-you"!

A.  Kitchen Encounters LogoI am really looking forward to cooking and blogging my way through 2011 with all of you, and in conjuction with that, I'm using this post to announce I've added a new act to my "bag of tricks":

WHVL-TV (channel 235 on our local Comcast cable system) will be visiting Melanie's Kitchen about once a month, filming here and then airing my cooking segment on their Sunday morning Centre of it All show.  We already have "one in the can" (you can watch me make my White Chicken Chili this coming Sunday morning) and we're scheduled to shoot our second segment in two short weeks.  With one click on the WHVL website, their viewers will have complete access to all of my Kitchen Encounters recipes.  Once all of the links are established, with one click on my blog, those of you who are out of the local viewing area will to be able to watch my segments right here.  What a fun way to start the New Year!!!

In the meantime, if you are looking for an easy and elegant breakfast to "ring in" your 2011 holiday, and an etheral, slow-braised traditional pork roast to end New Year's Day, try my:

Enjoy your holiday along with your weekend, and once again:  To leave a comment or ask a question, simply click on the blue title of any post, scroll to the end of it and type away!
