Confirmed absence... I have not abondoned ship!

Let's see, it's been a few seasons since I last updated the site.  Things have been a bit crazy in the meantime... all of a sudden I am a real estate investor and managing a full-scale apartment renovation... two things that are fairly new to me.  So, I haven't alotted much time to document my culinary endeavors, most of which have involved take-out and potato chips for the last many months.  I will be back, though, as I know my faithful legion of readers (I think I'm up to 3 now?) cannot take much more of my continued absence.  Here are a few photos of some dishes I've managed to throw together since my last post.

Garden heirloom Margherita pizza w/ garden basil and (Costco) fresh mozzarella.
Zucchini Parmesan, ala eggplant parm, made from overgrown-mutant garden zucchini... AMAZING!!
NY Strip steaks (Costco) smothered in sauteed mushrooms, w/ whipped garlic potatoes.
Roasted garden heirloom Brandywine tomatoes w/ goat cheese & herb/scallion/butter breadcrumb topping... to die for!

Edwin's B-day Beef Wellington wrapped in prosciutto w/ mushroom pate, and a side of 2-day beef reduction.
Heirloom BLT... yes, I LOVE my tomatoes.
The ULTIMATE bruschetta... ain't nobody does it better, at least not that I've sampled before.
The reason for my prolonged absence... all 7000sf of it.
