new website! ooooooooooh!

A new Macbook Pro, a new website! My friend teri told me that my lovely new machine had a program on it called iWeb and a few hours later, a new site! My other site ( was build all in dreamweaver and while i love that site so much, i lost all the files, don't have the password for my account on the server and i REALLY needed to update. This new site isn't at all about my personal work (just a heads up) but all about my business. Yes, I have a job! I needed a site just for my virtual tour business. It has become really lucrative but as always, I could use more clients. I mean, who couldn't. For now, the web address is which, is a bit long and only redirects you to the .mac server its on. i am in love with the ease of iWeb, i would just like to have my own url at the top. its a start for now and the site name may change to who knows! So take a look and let me know what you think. really... any and all critiques welcome!

next on the list, business cards. thats right, i don't have any!!

Mexico: One Adventure at a Time

So I have a slight obsession. His name is Rick Bayless. I have a series recording of his show "Mexico One Plate at a Time" and love his frozen pizzas which are inspired by the tastes and smells of Oaxaca. Why do I adore Rick so much? Well, WHERE DO I START? I think JW put it best when he said "Wow, he really is the only other person besides you that is that obsessed with Mexico" Hmm... Maybe so. I have contemplated going to Chicago to visit my best friend Kerry with the real plan of going to both of his restaurants. That website right there gave me some of the best suggestions on places to try in Oaxaca and even convinced me to suck it up and brave the consequences and try agua fresca. On my quest to find out all things about Rick and his culinary obsession with Mexico, I found out that he does culinary tours of Mexico. WHAT?! The man who lived in Oaxaca and inspired me to cook Mexican (everyday) is giving a culinary tour of Mexico in September. Wasn't I suppose to go to Oaxaca for Dia de Los Muertos in November for a reunion? OH YEAH.... Who says I can't do both? This year has been pretty lucrative so far. But lets just see what this magical trip in tales!!!


Experience the culinary and cultural riches of Central Mexico, from the magnificent colonial city of Puebla to the high energy � and art and culinary landscape � of Mexico City. The emphasis of this trip is on the foods of Mexico City, Tlaxcala, and the surrounding areas. It promises to be a unique and exciting opportunity to explore these culinary traditions �on location� in the culture and subcultures in which they evolved. The food found today in Mexico City still reflects its origins; enormous varieties of the centuries-old masa snacks can be found in the city�s markets and from street vendors. Then there are the traditional dishes, such as moles and pipianes, as well as the exciting dishes that are being created by chefs using traditional Mexican ingredients in new ways.

Discover these riches with chef, author, and PBS series host Rick Bayless, one of America's foremost practitioners of Mexican cooking. This program is limited to culinary professionals only.

WHAT?! Okay, I can make a mean guacamole and so pretty good Mexican got chocolate, but I'm a photographer, not a chef. But I emailed the woman who sets these things up and you know what, there might just be a spot for me on the trip after all. This may be my very first time traveling on my own UNLESS SOMEONE WANTS TO COME WITH ME!!!!

Check out the info here, and come with me!!!
