Wow, this year is almost over, can you believe it? There is so many things that have happened this year but I do not have the time to show you everything that I have accomplished. I love reading other people’s year-in- review-posts through my Droid in the middle of the night when I am feeding baby girl. Yes this is how I catch up for sure!
One of the things I purposed this coming year is to be able to review my favorite compact discs (CDs) of classical and opera. Even though these past years have focused on recipes, life, and my singing, I hope to focus more on my singing and the challenges of having a baby. I love the fact that I can introduce music to my beautiful baby because I do not know how it will influence her as she grows up.
Which CD will I start reviewing? Well, Delos Music was generous enough to introduce me to Evelyne Brancart playing Chopin in her CD called Chez Chopin which means Chopin’s home. How did Delos Music know I liked Chopin? My grandmother used to play Chopin to us and we would listen to it on records. I fell in love.
This CD was created by the pianist with 24 etudes and 24 recipes. The CD comes with 2 discs. One disc has all 24 pieces performed by the pianist while the second disc has a program that plays the piece with the recipe that is featured. Ms. Brancart explains how each recipe is like the piece and describes each with much color.
I cannot wait to try two recipes. All her recipes have French titles with a translation. The recipes are very gourmet but not at all complicated. As the new year approaches I am excited to get back into the kitchen a little more. My almost-2 month old baby girl is growing up fast and finding ways to include her in the kitchen is becoming real fun. Here is a preview of the recipes I will be trying:
A new update!
