I've also switched to the new Blogger beta. I don't notice much change yet.
I've been cooking a lot lately. I tried making seitan yesterday. I've made it twice before and it came out great. This time it was not very good.
It's rainy and cool here in Portland today and so I think later today I will make some of Jo Stepaniak's Potato Corn chowder from her book Table for Two. I love a lot of the recipes in that book. I make 1000 island dressing for salads from a recipe of hers.
