Bonterra Blu Closing - But Not Gone

As many of you have probably already read, Bonterra Blu is closing its restaurant to the public.  They will continue to cater, host parties, teach cooking classes and operate the Gypsy Blu food truck, but they will no longer operate the restaurant.  Joel and Trish created a wonderful bistro in Clyde and it will be missed.  However, luckily for us, they will still be around, just in more private settings.

Be sure to wish them good luck and let them know that they will be missed.  But most importantly, be sure to let them know that you admire their decision to put family above everything else.  We greatly respect their decision and know that it must have been hard.  We wish Bella the best and hope that she and her family will continue to be successful and enjoy what they do.

It has been a while...

Well, it has been a while since our last post....sorry. :-(

Never fear though, we have plenty of new content on the way.  We have some road trips planned, some new recipes, new products and businesses to discuss, so you may be tired of us soon. :-)

We took some time off the last few weeks from the blog, just to recharge our batteries.  However, during that time, we kept creating new recipes and trying new things.  Those will be showing up soon.

As summer winds down and school begins to start, we are getting wound back up.  See you soon!!
