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).

    As promised, here I am visiting your site and it’s AWESOME! It was so nice meeting you at Vida Vegan Con and hope we can keep up with each other. Would love to contact you when I’m visiting home to go to a vegan spot! Take care and I would love to have you guest blog on my site at some point if you’re interested.

    Also, one last thing, I tried to subscribe to the blog, but feedburner gave me an error message. Hope to talk soon!

    I just figured out that this is your new blog! Ha, it came up in my RSS feed and I was like “huh, that sounds like Luciana, but isn’t her blog called something else?” It’s beautiful, and I love the name. Spooky–kale fell out of my refrigerator this morning! You have such a lovely writing voice and are so much fun to hang out with in real life, too! Come visit Canada anytime, please. (ps…chia kombucha is still gross)

      I just started the new blog this summer and transferred my old content over. Thanks for stopping by! I’m still working on the layout a bit, and I appreciate the kind words.

      There are half eaten(drunken?) bottles of chia kombucha all over the west coast because I couldn’t chug it before I got on my flights. Oh, the humanity!

    WOW! Sweetheart, I love Kale and am happy to see that you are back writing and enjoying the things you love most. Veggies, lol. Keep up the good work.
