Last night, March 29, my mother passed away at the age of 58 years old. It was very sudden. At this point, as I am sure you will all understand, I just don't have the words to say very much more than that.
I am quite sure of one thing, though, and that is that I probably won't be able to post for a while as my family and I come to grips with this terrible loss and begin to move forward. It seemed strange to me to post even now, as if I should be doing something else. But I like to think of my readers as friends and, yes, some of you I consider as my own family. And it's good to turn to friends and family during difficult times.
I thank you for your understanding.
In my absence, I invite you to check out the recipe index (in the top menu), the recipe categories (scroll down and to your right) or the recipe suggestion boxes directly under each post to explore the many recipes that already appear on Bariatric Foodie.
My love of cooking comes from my mother. It is because of her that I love to feed people and it is her spirit within me that wants to gather us all together as a community with shared experiences. It would be the greatest honor to her for you to continue to use this blog in my absence, be inspired by the recipes and, as always, play with your food!
