Allow me to reintroduce myself
I started Luciana’s Kitchen back in 2008, as part of VeganMoFo that year. Over the years, I’ve wanted to redesign the blog, and change the URL about a million times. I wanted to post more often, but something just never felt quite right about the name I hastily chose back then.
Then, Vida Vegan Con was announced, and I decided that if I was going to start blogging in earnest, now was the time. Otherwise, I’d basically be traveling 3000+ miles to hang out and eat waffles. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I’m really excited about meeting and reconnecting with some pretty awesome people.
Still, I’d like to really get as much as I can out of the experience. We moved pretty far into the exurbs last year, and while I love the peace and quiet, I really need a hobby more exciting than brushing my cats with the Furminator.
So, on vacation this winter, Carl and I were trying to come up with a new blog name. After a lot of really silly kale-related humor, I settled on It’s Raining Kale. I ate other greens growing up, but pregan, kale was just that curly garnish on my plate. Now it’s my favorite vegetable, and sometimes, when we open the refrigerator it literally (literally!) falls out. “Kale Falling Out of My Refrigerator” didn’t seem as catchy, though.
So, hello again friends and family! I hope to be back and posting regularly really soon.
*I’m still working on the layout, so pardon the dust (and the cliché).
