Back for Seconds

I’m a fiercely private person so you can understand why I’d be hesitant to publish this piece. But Ed knows me well and his questions were thoughtful and perceptive, things only a close friend would know to ask. – Lori
Don?t call it a comeback because Lori Baltazar never left. Dessert Comes First (DCF) just celebrated its 12th anniversary this past May without a lot of noise or fanfare. Its founder, Lori Baltazar, was still in the midst of getting her groove back. The malady that put both her and DCF on hiatus was creeping towards becoming a distant memory. Blog posts were being put up slowly but surely. Public consciousness regarding the comeback was reaching its tipping point ? the one and only Dessert Diva was back, and, to the surprise of almost everyone she brought a team!
Today, we sit down with Lori and ask her 11 intimate questions tackling everything her loyal fanbase would want to know ? the recovery, the people behind the new DCF contributing team, and the future of the blog.

Lori, could you talk about the hiatus and how has your recovery been both for you physically and the blog"
So I was sick in 2015, and 2016 was all about learning how to live again. I only had ten blog posts [last year] because I was re-learning everything, travelling, and honestly thinking about turning off the lights on DCF and just calling it a day. Then, last Christmas, Bal, (a good friend and DCF?s web management advisor) suggested opening DCF to contributors so that I could concentrate on the other topics I wanted to write about.
You’re currently working with a pool of writers, a strong group of blog post contributors. How is it different working with a team compared to writing everything on your own"

With some members of the DCF team
It?s true that I do a lot of my work by myself, but it?s been fun working with a group of like-minded people because it allows me a chance to interact. Believe it or not, I get lonely sometimes and I do enjoy the company! Working with contributors really gives me that chance to interact on a limited level and that?s just great! Plus the whole group is just SUPER; and, handpicked by me mostly! I?ve really chosen people who are friends and those who write really well.
Will your health dictate the articles that you will write"

Yes. I am not the same person that I was before I got sick. That reality informs who I am health-wise and personally. While I still love to go out and eat, I would rather have the contributors do the food reviews and I would rather concentrate on my travel pieces and long-form stories ? both food and personal. I?d also like to focus on my ?80-20?, 80% healthy and 20% devilishly delicious recipes!
How different is the food scene now from a couple of years ago during the height/peak of DCF"
I would say there?s a lot more competition now. The variety is immense; however, the attentio...
