Exciting Times for The Yuca Diaries

The New Yuca Diaries Logo!

I have been meaning to write this post for some time now, but for several reasons I have been pushing it off.  I finally had some down time because I caught a horrible flu and have been laying in bed.  I am all bundled up with my laptop, a box of tissues and some ginger tea.

First off let me start by saying that right after I got back from our trip to Kentucky, I was contacted by a producer from the Univision show, Delicioso, hosted by Ingrid Hoffman and Maggie Jimenez.  Some of you may know Ingrid from her show on the Food Network called Simply Delicioso.  Basically, they're doing a show about food bloggers, and I will be featured as one of the guests.  They're planning on hosting a contest, where at the end of the segment, they'll ask fans to visit the Univision website and vote for their favorite blogger.  The winner will then be flown to the Delicioso set to record a segment with Ingrid.  To say that I am honored is a HUGE understatement.  At this moment, I don't know the specifics, like when the show will air or when the voting will begin but I will keep you posted- I need all the help I can get.

Please excuse the poor quality of these pictures, I had to create a snapshot from a video.

Secondly, I have been working on re-designing my blog.  It's been kind of tricky because I am having a few issues with the design aspect.  At the moment, the blog is live, but there are a few changes I am working on.  The margins need to be fixed so that I can add the widget column and so that the pictures don't cut off.  Also, when I imported the content from this blog into there, the format of the posts was all wonky.  Needless to say, this was going on while I had to prepare for the show, was working on the biggest event my department does, and had to fly home for a family emergency.  It is still a work in progress but I'd like to share it anyway with you.  Just keep in mind that I still have to tweak a few things.

These things aside, I am happy with how it's coming along.  Brandon created the logo which just adds to the sentimental value for me.

The new blog is simply  www.theyucadiaries.com
