Bragging on Lana!
Readers of blog or any of my books know that my lovely and adorable bride, Lana, is my inspiration. It was with her encouragement that I began to write The Gemstone Chronicles and she had to put up with my frequent forays into the realms of elves, trolls, magical gemstones, and mythical monsters. It was also her willingness to begin her own blog that convinced me to publish my books. It’s time to do some bragging on Lana!!
Lana does all of the cooking (except for one or two guest posts by me) and does her own photography. She has taught me so many things about food, photography, blogging, writing, and life in general. I can’t say enough about her! Lana totally rocks!
So, today marks the fourth anniversary of her wonderful cooking blog! She started the blog on Superbowl Sunday in 2009. The first recipe she posted on her blog was one of my all-time favorites – Pasta d’Arrabiata. Since then, she has posted over 400 times to her blog, has thousands of comments, and millions of visits. Her blog has exposed me to a lot of new and different foods and, as the chief taste-tester, I have eaten most of them. And, they have been delicious! I mean, who can resist a Pecan-Cheesecake pie? How about Beef and Stout Pie using Guinness Stout? All of this and more can be found on her site.
Join me in celebrating her 4th anniversary and head on over to her blog to check it out. You can find it at www.lanascooking.com. Visit, check out the recipes, leave a comment, and make yourself eligible to win her giveaway of 4 four-piece place settings of Fiesta ware!! http://www.lanascooking.com/2013/02/02/has-it-really-been-four-years-giveaway/
