Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.


Well, hello there.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  Yes, I am alive and no, I did not plan to beat you over the head with the fact that I went to a knife skills like I ended up doing  since it has been my last post for two weeks. I have had a great and whirlwind of a holiday and nothing to show for it.  So I found a friend to give you a quick synopsis of where I've been.

First,  I cooked....

Rewind to two weeks ago when I probably cooked more in 6 days than I do some months.  I had 11 girls over for dinner, catered appetizers for a Christmas party, and made dinner for my brother and his wife who just had a baby.  Phew.

And then, I ate...

Last week, my parents took Mr.  Hungry and I to New York for an early Christmas present.  The food, oh the food.  From a "macaroni and cheese only" restaurant to Tavern on the Green for dinner , we ate, and ate and ate some more.  One day I will share my favorite places to eat in that little city, but for now I will sum it up with why I have nothing to show for all the cooking I did the week before.

As we were taking a ferry back from seeing the Statue of Liberty, I was playing around with my camera and somehow reformatted my memory card, erasing all of my cooking pics from the week before.  Luckily, my mom had captured all of the pictures from the trip, but I erased all my hard work from the week before.  It was lots of my favorite recipes so I'll be happy to make them again, but for now, I am going to continue to take a small break.   I'll be back mid January with more cooking adventures.  Until then, hope you enjoy the end of the year and the beginning of a new one.

  1. Great way to have a dog in the "little kitchen" - in cute pictures! The food in NYC was good but nothing to compare to food from the "little kitchen"! The whole family LOVED your homemade pizza's for Christmas eve. A new tradition was born!
