So, I took a hella-long hiatus and didn't tell anyone.
Sorry ma peeps.
I tend to suck on occasion. And the past, um, five months, are just another shining example of my fickle mentality.
So, if you are/were one of the three people who frequented The Brooklyn Nester with any kind of regularity, I'll apologize an umpteenth time for my incompetence.
Looking forward: I'm going to try, try being the operative word, to actually stop into The Brooklyn Nester and let y'all know what's going on in our kitchen. I've been cookin' it up here in our NEW Greenpoint apartment! Holla!
To catch you up on all the fun times I've been having, the next few posts will be from the kitchen in our old apartment...a farewell if you will, in a 3-part series called: Limited Counter Space, Revisited.
So, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all that garbage.
Join us for future postings. Or don't.
But, either way, I'm back baby.

First things first.
My apologies for being a terrible/horrible/horrendous blogger.
I have been busy as hell, and when I do find a free moment, I'm a total slacker.
So, for those of you who have checked this blog faithfully, I want to say thanks, and, sorry. I hope to be a little bit better about posting.
In other news, I want to talk about my new man.
Sure, you've used his liquid cleaners. But, ask yourself:
Have I tried the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser yet?
If your answer was "No," you need to get real. Because you are working too hard to clean your shit.
My bathroom was in really bad shape.
And when I say really bad shape, I mean, there was shit growing in there that I was afraid would spore out and make new colonies in my hair, skin, and mouth.
Bathing loses that refreshing feeling when you step out of the shower feeling dirtier than when you stepped in.
So, when we invited friends, and their baby, over for dinner, it was time to get down to the nitty-gritty. After all, I didn't want to be responsible for infecting our friend's child with a wild-mold-spore disease.
I got the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and did practically nothing except wave it over the nasty film of my tub, sink, and shower walls. And, as if Jesus were there waving his hands over my bathroom, blessing its near-damned soul, it was clean.
Go buy the Magic Eraser.
Like the holy gift of the ATM, you will wonder how you functioned in society before this product existed.

Work and family related hullabaloo has kept this Nester a little too busy as of late.
Sincere apologies on the lack of posting. But, I promise, in the next few days we should be back up and running.
I am dying to do some baking...so, I hope that you'll come and check out my soon-to-be-posted snacks!
I hope that you all had a wonderful National Pie Day.
I'd like to personally thank all the bloggers who submitted their pie photos! Delicious and Wonderful!
Have a great day! See you soon!

Sincere apologies my faithful Nesters!
My computer was down, and, then I ended up taking an unexpected hiatus.
But, the Bitch is back, and she's feeling renewed and zesty.
While I may have taken a brief break from blogging, the Nesting continued...so there is much to share in the coming weeks!
In any event, I've been feeling kind of guilty for abandoning you all...so, here's a little nugget from 8 million years ago...AKA the Chris Kimball book signing. Some of you emailed me thirsty for details so...here y'are!
CHRISTOPHER KIMBALL'S BOOK SIGNING
@ THE SHOPS AT COLUMBUS CIRCLE
The event opened with Chris chatting about the new book and how America's Test Kitchen works diligently to perfect its recipes.
Then there was a Q&A where all the weird-ass New Yorkers reared their ugly heads and asked totally irrelevant and uninformed questions. The only pertinent piece of information we learned during the Q&A was that when Christopher eats out in New York, he prefers Le Bernardin .
Classy Chris, classy.
Chris and his Test Kitchen crew brought along snacks. Which, as is evident, I munched whilst admiring our new book!
Then Chris signed some books...which we were super-stoked for!!!
And, here is our glorious book, equipped with signature of course!
And, Chris even has a little bow-tie stamp! So cute! It scored him some major Nesting points!
Anyway, even if it was, like, 3 years ago, it was fun and I thought y'all would like to see zee photos!
Have a great Monday! And, stay tuned as I beg for your forgiveness through blogging!
