Happy Birthday Nancy! & New Posting Schedule

With mirth and laughter let the wrinkles come.
William Shakespeare

I love this birthday quote, always have. Although I do not think it applies to Nancy as she turns 21! Actually she turns 21 every year…curious how that works.

I used this graphic because I thought it was cool…




This one is more appropriate me thinks…


Nancy aka “The Vegan Voice” was my first and most enthusiastic supporter when I started this blog. Since the moment she agreed to contribute to LC, she raised the bar. Her amazing, original, and sophisticated recipes show us that Vegan cooking can be exciting. No more bland rabbit food.

Having her share with me the blog is my favorite aspect of the blogging experience, without her it would not be the same. She is a talented cook, writer, and a super Mom. Does she moonlight as a masked vigilante at night and beat criminals to a bloody pulp? Hmm…Maybe!

Excuse me for a moment…

Prima,

Te mando un deseo de cumpleanos tan bella como tu y que cumplas muchos mas. Mucho amor, muchos besos, y muchos abrasos.

I’m back. Now to the posting breakdown…

We are going to change a bit our posting habits here on Lazaro Cooks! Actually streamlining them. From now on we will be posting 3 times a week. Due to our hectic schedules, be it Motherhood, Blogcritics, the job that actually pays the bills, cooking, family, gardening, blogging, etc. The breakdown will be as follows…

Tuesdays – Tune in for the Vegan Voice. Nancy will post her delectable, nutritious vegan fare.

Thursdays – Blogcritics articles/Guest Post Spotlight. My BC articles will be published on Thursdays, so I will introduce them on the blog and supply the linkage. Also, I have thoroughly enjoyed spotlighting incredibly talented foodies. Luckily for us, many have agreed to participate. Please check in this coming Thursday as Tanantha at I Just Love My Apron, has graciously accepted to share her talent on LC.

Saturdays – Lazaro actually cooks!

I love organization and this works for us. We will do everything within our power to adhere to the schedule.

Update:  Right before posting this, I was notified that I am the...Blogcritics Writer of the Day, on the site's homepage.  How cool is that?!  A big thank you to all my friends who have jumped over to BC and supported my articles.  I appreciate it more than you know.

That’s it for now…till we exchange a few words again…Peace!

    It's cool that you have a schedule. I kind of just post whenever I make something so it's not very organized. ;)

  14. Happy birthday Nancy! Hope you have a lovely day. I so admire how you find the time to post three times a week; I'm currently trying to do that twice but sometimes even once a week is tough.

  15. Grandmas have the best recipes don't they? I wished I was smart enough to learn some of my Grandma's cooking when I was a child. Your recipe sounds and looks absolutely fabulous. I'm sure it was delicious! My hubby would love this! Thank you for sharing.
    And it's definitely 2 awesome prizes for the cooking challenge.
