New RSS Feed & Subscribe Information

During the recent site redesign, the feed address for the blog changed and some of you weren’t receiving feeds or notifications in your blog readers. Subsequently, my web fellow re-did the feed—so if you’re using the old feed, it is presently directing you to the new feed, but you should change it to the new one.

You can get the current RSS feed address by clicking on the little orange square logo on the green menu bar at the top of the page.


If you use Firefox or Safari, you can click on the icon in the browser URL bar.

If you don’t know what RSS is, it allows you to use a feed reader, such as Bloglines, Newsgator, My Yahoo, or NewsFire (which I use) to automatically notify you when this site, as well as others that you add, are updated.

A very comprehensive explanation of what RSS is and how to use it can be found at: Getting Started with RSS.

Updates by E-mail

If you don’t use a RSS feeder, and you’d like to be notified of when the site is updated so you don’t miss a post or a recipe (which, personally, I can’t imagine anything worse…), you can have new entries sent directly to you each time there is an update.

Simply enter your email address in the first box to the far right sidebar of this page, the top one, where is says Subscribe.


Every so often I send out a newsletter, say, four to six times a year. There’s new photos, recipes, travel tips, stories, and notices about upcoming events and appearances. In general, it’s the first place I make announcements of new tours, classes, and books. If you want to receive it, enter your email address over in the far right sidebar, in the second box, where is says Subscribe.

There’s a double opt-in system so you’ll get an email asking you to confirm.

You won’t be inundated by email; just the notices I send out. Your email address and information are never sold or shared so you will only be getting messages from yours truly. If you want to opt-out at any time, there’s information at the bottom of each newsletter. You can sign up here.

Never miss a post!

    Clotilde of C & Z has a recipe on her website for Chocolate Spiced Peanut Butter using this chocolate. Have G. Detou on my list of places to stop the next time in Paris so I can pick up a bag of Xocopili.

    Oops! I think you meant to post this comment on the previous post. But yes, I think that cumin added to chocolate seems to be appreciated by French friends more than I do. Another cultural quirk!
