Instead of the typical “Dinner and a Movie” for hubby Ryan and me this weekend, we had what I am calling “Updates and a Movie.” Updates?”, you ask? Yes! The Cooking Canvas Blog has an EXCITING announcement to share! But first, if you tried to access the blog on Friday or Saturday at some point, you probably saw a scary malware message from Google that made your skin crawl…I am so sorry. It seems we suffered a little cyber attack and Google, to ensure viewers’ safety, intelligently implemented a preventative measure. But, 24 hours later, it was all squared away. Hooray! As you know, BlueHost and I are committed to operating a safe, clean website for viewers like you. So, faithful followers, no worries!
As for the announcement…wait for it…The Cooking Canvas is now a part of BlogHer Network, which is both a community of bloggers committed to quality content as well as an advertising affiliate.
A blog has to apply and be approved and almost a year after starting this blog, we are now apart of this growing group. Yay! So, now you will see BlogHer links peppered in a post. Enjoy!
Now, to the movie part. On Saturday, we went to the matinee of The Hundred Foot Journey starring Helen Mirren. It was, in one word, cute.
The scenery made you want to leave the theatre and hop on a plane to France, then India. Just a sweet, feel-good film about food and family. Who doesn’t like that? Given that many of the scenes made you hungry, I left the theatre craving French and Indian cuisine and plan to make this super simple Curry Pumpkin Soup from The Nutmeg Nanny for dinner this week and buy a crisp, fresh baguette. I will let you know how it goes!
In the meantime, I have made it a goal to share some more personal photos (non-food related and hopefully not too much information).
As always, thank you for your readership!
