I believe I conducted a successful taste test today. The survey was taken by my classmates and I heard quite a few favorable responses. The 5 dishes presented included strawberry cheesecake tarts, oatmeal craisin cookies, chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing, carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, and pineapple upside-down cake. All of these dishes are “diabetic friendly”, meaning low-sugar and low-fat. I know that using the term “diabetic friendly” is somewhat of a faux-pas due to the fact that diabetics can eat anything they want so long as they plan for the glucose spike, however, I use it only to quickly convey how I prepared the food.

Our group was pretty productive today. Adam created and showed a slide showhe created. I commented that at times some of the text was difficult to read due to font color blending in with the background; and Kacey mentioned that some of the text went by too quickly which was a good point. Overall, his presentation looks amazing and well thought out.

Also, Nick showed us his magazine cover. It seems that he has created a fictional athelete that was recently accused of using performance enhancing drugs. It sounds like a sweet concept and the draft of his magazine cover looks awesome. The group suggested that he add some color and a border to the background. This is a great idea, but in hindsight I think that maybe it was too busy. He might want to using maybe one or two pics max and use text to give the reader an idea of the other stories.

 Okay, enough about them, let’s get to want I need to do. This week I plan to get a draft down of my first genre piece, the essay. I want to play around with the brochure as well. the brochure is going to feed into the essay so I need to complete those two pieces together. The cookbook is coming along swimmingly, I need to get that ordered so it has enough time to get back to me, and the food seemed to go over pretty well today as you have already read. Overall, I have a lot of work to do but with the food, pretty much locked down as far as recipes (still need to go over surveys to be sure) are concerned, I have the confidence to say that this project is just about a a quarter finished!
