Did you hear? It’s officially Summer! I hope you’re as excited as I am for these lazy days of summer under the sun. I’ve been looking forward to it for weeks, and although the work at Brownble never stops, I get an almost total break from teaching for two whole months! We’ve got so much up our sleeves when it comes to Brownble. One of the perks of my two occupations is that when school season stops, the most exciting things at Brownble begin. It’s when we brainstorm and film the bulk of new courses, it’s when so much of the recipe testing takes place. It’s the time of year when I come up with new exciting series for the blog and podcast, and when I’m sometimes at my most creative, especially in the kitchen.
In spite of all this work (which is always the most fun part of what we do), we spend so much time by the pool, and we take the dogs to beautiful reservoirs, rivers, forests, to the mountains, and throughout all of these, and especially while Carlos barbecues and I for once get to sit and relax in the meantime, I always have a book with me.
You probably know this about me by now if you follow us on Instagram, or if you’ve listened to our podcast before, but reading is such a big part of my life. This includes wonderful cookbooks which I usually read from cover to cover just like novels, awesome fiction (mostly contemporary fiction), and lots of memoirs and other non-fiction books. Last year, right around this time I told you all about my bookish life, how I choose books, my book pet peeves, and some of my favorite titles (check out that post here or listen to ep. 90 of The Brownble Podcast), but so many books have passed through my hands since then that I thought we would make this a yearly tradition.Read More
