ten on tuesday.

1. I often get questions about blog design and other bloggy things which I consider myself highly UNqualified to answer. I have piddled with HTML over the years out of necessity but my knowledge is limited to what the answers I find on google. I’m a far cry from a web genius or design guru. If you’re looking for great information on blog design for BLOGGER you might want to consider Kristina Proffitt’s Blog Design Basics Class. It looks like an awesome class and if I were still working on Blogger I’d be in it in a heartbeat!

2. As a random sidenote, I actually met Kristina almost four years ago on an elevator in the Park Meadows Mall in Denver. She recognized Sarah and me from the blog. It was a crazy fun coincidence! She’s a super talented person with a super kind heart. (My favorite kind of person.)

3. Thank you to everyone who sent along recipes for honeydew melon sorbet (and more!) a couple of weeks ago. I put Brent to work on this recipe Saturday afternoon for our Supper Club that evening. It was so delish! We served it in tuiles I made using this recipe from my new favorite (asย of Saturday when I went a-googling)ย food/baking blog, Bakers Royale. I love her fresh simple set up and her gorgeously crisp finished images.

4. I was so inspired that I channeled my secret desire to be the Next Food Network Star (not!) and made a trio of desserts for Supper Club. To include individual coconut cakes, s’mores petit fours, and the aforementioned honeydew melon sorbet in fresh tuiles. I am now in sugar detox. Not even kidding about that.

5. Have you checked out Mila’s Daydream lately? It’s only gotten cuter. Laundry Day? Are you kidding me? How is my heart supposed to absorb that much squishy baby love? Geez Louise.

6. I just registered for the Huntsville Half Marathon in November. It was only $20. Easy to back out of, right?

7. Where has roasted cabbage been all of my life?

8. I sent a newsletter out last week regarding the Clean Color Workflow Video. In response I got tons of questions about the video that I plan to answer in video clip format here on Thursday or Friday. So if you don’t want to see me as a talking head stay away. ๐Ÿ˜‰

9. TOMORROW is the day I’ll be sending out a newsletter regarding my holiday minisessions for this year. So if you’re local and you want more information use the signup form in the sidebar of the business blog. I love minisessions!

10. Brent’s mom is currently recovering from a pretty intense surgery yesterday. If you have a prayer to spare our family would appreciate it.

Ahhh! I totally forgot to sign up for your newsletter! Is it too late?

Lorena MoraAugust 31, 2010 - 11:15 am

I’m going to try the roasted cabbage looks yummy.

I will be praying for Brent’s mom and the family hope all is well.

JenniferAugust 31, 2010 - 11:36 am

Prayers sent for the MIL for a speedy and full recovery. And funny that you mentioned recipes, because I was just craving one of your parmesean chicken recipes and was thinking it’s been too long since I’ve made it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Jackie HouckAugust 31, 2010 - 6:20 pm

I thought I signed up for the newsletter but I didn’t receive anything yet. Should I sign up again?

TinaAugust 31, 2010 - 8:11 pm

#8 – I signed up too, and didn’t receive the newsletter – even checked my spam box!
10 – Will say a prayer of recovery for your MIL!

BradAugust 31, 2010 - 10:44 pm

Hey Erin, we will pray for Brent’s mom! It’s neat how God can use us to pray for folks around the world that we’ve never actually met. ๐Ÿ™‚

robinAugust 31, 2010 - 11:19 pm

Martha HernandezSeptember 1, 2010 - 5:39 am

Erin, my prayers go out to your MIL for a full and speedy recovery and also to all your family during this time.

Received your newsletter, can’t wait for the work flow video!

Take care.

BrandySeptember 1, 2010 - 7:23 am

I hope all is well with Brent’s mom. You guys are in our thoughts.

Jessica WSeptember 1, 2010 - 12:40 pm

Just coming back to say, thanks ever so much for that baking blog. I found about 50 things I want to make, like, right now, and I am just on the front page.

KalynskitchenSeptember 1, 2010 - 1:28 pm

So glad you enjoyed the roasted cabbage!

Stacey RSeptember 1, 2010 - 8:10 pm

I signed up for the newsletter, but didn’t receive it. ๐Ÿ™ I tried signing up again, but it said I’ve already signed up. ๐Ÿ™‚ Must. not. miss. workflow. video!

Rebecca BrighamSeptember 2, 2010 - 5:21 am

Dear Ms. Pig Bear! I can’t believe that I missed the newsletter about your work flow video, because I read your blog almost daily. I am signed up for your newsletter, but our email system via the University has been all screwed up (darn that email system) – especially last week. Do you have a link to your newsletters somewhere so I can find it? I will pay a bizillion dollars (OK… maybe not, but I’d pay a lot) for your workflow info. Thanks so much!… or maybe would you mind trying to send it to my email again? Kisses.

LeilaSeptember 8, 2010 - 2:52 pm

Erin – tried the roasted cabbage on Labor Day and it was great. Thanks for the tip!

[…] Speaking of meals, I appealed on Twitter recently for help with my leftover roasted cabbage. A fellow Tweep came through with this bit of English amazingness: Bacon and Cabbage. Yum. I […]
