Happy New Year! 2010 has been a busy one, though it has meant that I have neglected writing on kitchen window a bit. I received this 2010 Year in Review from WordPress, and I found it interesting. It’s also motivated me to continue to post on this site throughout 2011. I have been thinking of great things to post including new recipes, events in Miami, information on arts productions around the world, and everyday info that I have come across, so look forward to postings about those topics in 2011. In case you’re interested in checking out what I’ve been up to in 2010, here are some of the projects I’ve been working on: Mapping Miami, the Miami Art Salon, founding Blackbird Arts and Research, being an artist-in-residence at the Deering Estate, my dissertation research about art, Miami, and the Caribbean, Yelping, and overhauling my personal website.
Thanks for reading kitchen window! Here’s the 2010 Year in Review:
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Wow! If we didn’t already have plans, I would definitely be taking my mom to this farm lunch. Mom, if you’re reading, sorry we didn’t find out about this sooner – maybe next year!
The price is flexible and can either include transportation for $155, or if you drive yourself to the farm in Homestead, the lunch is $30.
I found out about the event through Slow Food Miami, but it is not a Slow Food sponsored event.

The Food and Garden Festival at Fairchild is around the corner on April 24 and 25. This year they’ve invited local bloggers to come to the festival and blog about the experience. I was invited!
The Festival is full of events focusing on local and fresh food. They have lectures, demos, and a plant sale.
Admission: Free to Fairchild members and children 5 and under. Non-members: $20 for adults, $15 for seniors 65 and up, and $10 for children ages 6 – 17.
I’m perusing the schedule now, and it looks great. Here are some standouts to me:
