The Crossover Blog Post

Richard Belzer rocks the world
Faithful followers of food and art - this is a crossover post.  By "Crossover" I don't mean a Crossover SUV, or a crossover pass; I'm talking about a crossover blog post.  Today's post will be in both My Taste Of The Day and Coffee Bruin!

There have been plenty of great crossovers.  I remember when the show Homicide, Life on the Street crossed over with Law and Order.  (In fact, that's why Detective Munch is now on Law and Order SVU.)

So why the crossover and what are we going to do?  Over the past few years, I have had THOUSANDS of you read My Taste Of The Day and many of you have shared your ideas and requests.  I want to keep catering to you and continue to give you content while I build up readership with content, comics, and art at Coffee Bruin.  THESE ARE NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE GOALS!

Presenting the great Cookbook Challenge!

Here's the plan:  I am looking for comments with 2 - 3 ingredients but NOT RECIPES!  Think Iron Chef.  If I choose your comment for the challenge I will develop a recipe from your ingredients, draw cover art for the recipe, and include it in a forth-coming cookbook. If I can get 25-30 comments, I'll start a Kickstarter campaign to get this published and all of the included commenters will get a hard copy of the cookbook if it is successful.  Stretch goal?  I'll make videos of some of these recipes and post them on YouTube.

There you have it folks Art meets Food.  So let's get this Bear drawing and Cooking!

A short update and some WONDERFUL NEWS

Faithful followers,

I have had a rough few months, losing my job and trying to transition into a new life.  I have had the love and support of my wife and family and I couldn't have done this without them.  I have not forgotten about you and will be updating as I reorganize my web presence.   So there is no recipe today.

But don't pout, don't fret, I have exciting wonderful news.

My daughter got engaged this evening!!!  Yes this is the same daughter that helped me bring you Wuthering Heights with a Side of Bacon.

Her boyfriend is a wonderful guy who I've seen grow up over the last several years, he's a hard worker, he puts her on a pedestal, and together they have big plans for the future.  I am so excited for them!

So until next time, I wish you Peace, Love, and Hollandaise Sauce.
