Happy New Year - Resolutions


 Another year almost has past, do you believe it?  I know!  Where has the year gone?  Is it just me or does it seem that the year literally flew by?

I have had many changes in my life this past year.  The first 3 quarters for me, were horrific, literally.  I'm not going to go into details, but I can tell you that many, many tears were shed. Too many sleepless nights, and too many bottles of wine consumed.
It wasn't death or illness thank goodness, but financially it was horrible.  However, glory given to GOD and only GOD, the last quarter has been a blessing, and those blessings continue to unfold.
We are slowly getting back on our feet, and count each day as a blessing.

Even though this past year was very difficult, it never ceases to amaze me how many blessings I have in my life on a daily basis.  From my beautiful children, to my amazing doggies, my wonderful husband, my home, my spice collection...
What?  Last but not least, my amazing, out of this word beautiful inside and out friends.  Real life friends, cyber friends, foodie friends, foodie fellow bloggers...

 
Kecia from Kecia's Flavor Breathrough and I at the farmer's market.  We had such fun, and it was bitter cold!!

You guys rock my world, and that is one of my blessings!!

So my resolution this year is to get back into blogging, making videos and just being more active in the "cooking arena" than I have been in almost, well I would say two years.  I have been making celebrity chefs recipes, and recipes from cookbooks as well, and some were amazing, and some were...
Right!

I figure that I should start reviewing and sharing my experiences with you all.  How does that sound?  For instance, Ina Garten has become one of my favorite chefs, like ever!!  Her recipes rock!
I'm also thinking of opening up my Facebook page again.  Still pondering on that one, because it is so time consuming.  When you work full time, it's hard to do it all, even though heavens knows I try!  We will see about Facebook.  As for my blog, I will definitely be sharing with you my reviews, along with guest posts and my own recipes as well.  I might even throw in some videos and pics from my amazing granddaughter!!

 
Trust me, she's the love of my life!! ♥

I love it when you comment, so please feel free to do so!

So "from my house to yours", HAPPY NEW YEAR!! ♥ ♥ ♥



Till next time!
