Canigeta Conclusion…

February 10, 2012

One of my very first dishes...

You’ve probably noticed, my posting as of late has come to a screeching halt. Wildly enough, when I started this blog back in November of 2008, I never could have dreamed of what it would have done for me. Finding a voice and a means to share it through food has opened up more doors and has allowed for more experiences than the 500 posts I’ve made can even come close to realizing. More importantly however, it’s been a wonder to share it all with you. From the catering to the challenges to the recipes and more, Canigetasample was always about you allowing me to share my passion. It’s with that I say “thank you!”.

My decision to officially stop posting came not too long ago. For no other reason than “it feels right”, it’s time for me to put my efforts into the number of exciting (and somewhat time consuming) initiatives I have going on. If you haven’t already, I hope you will follow me over to The Nobler Experiment, as I continue to find my voice, now through my mild obsession with liquor. But that won’t be your only opportunity to hear about what’s going on. In all honestly, the pressure to post had started to wear on my cooking style. Since, however, I made the decision to conclude with one last sample, I’ve had a revival of sorts in the kitchen. I promise I will find a new way to share that with all of you!

I decided also, it was only fitting to go back and share some of my favorite posts from the last few years. It was amazing to travel through time through the 500 posts that got us here. I thought I’d find a few to write about but after some time, as you can see below, there were too many I just had to include!

With that, I can only thank you all once again, for the support, for the advice, and for the constant willingness to read and for those who are closest, eat what I have to offer! To re-quote myself from so many posts throughout…”This is why I cook”:

Health Reset Recipe Guide

February 6, 2012

Hey Everyone! Remember me!


Well I can’t apologize enough for dropping the ball on this one, but finally I’ve put together a snap shot of recipes to get you going for your Health Reset! I’ve added some of my favorites that are not only perfect for Reset approved meals, but taste damn good as well. For additional menu ideas, I find that Simply Recipes is one of the greatest resources. While you will have to weed out some of the “vegetarian dishes” containing dairy and wheat here, it’s a wonderful way to trigger some of your own culinary creations. Regardless of how you do it, I can say for certain, you’ll be glad you did. The Health Reset opens your eyes to how you can feel and maybe more importantly how you should feel.

Since my most recent 10 day Reset, I’ve gone back to a few of the major ingredients I had given up. And while I’m still not ready to give up those Italian Hoagies, the Reset ways of meat, wheat, and dairy free become more and more appealing. I may not ever go 100% but who knows. Just remember one thing: No matter what you choose about food, never forget to think about how it makes you feel.

“We feel what we eat”
