Happy 2nd Blogaversary!

Toasting to a successful two years!
First, thank you to my followers! You are what makes the blog happen, without YOU, it is nothing. Thank you for your continued support and comments.

It’s hard to believe I’ve been keeping up with my blog for two years now; it’s mostly hard to believe because, well, there have been a few moments, particularly lately, where I’ve considered wrapping things up here. I’ve thought long and hard about signing off or handing the reins over, wiping my mouth, giving a nod to my guests and quietly declaring that I’m full, and head off to the golf course. But, my children say to me, "What? Why?" Wee Bear, says, "Do what you want to do." Hmmmmm I have weighed the pro's and con's and the con's list is probably longer, but the pro list is stronger, if that makes any sense. So, here we go! I am going to continue, I am going to take vacations and I am cutting back to once a week.....I know I will lose some of you, but, I'll hope to keep you hanging in there for a "Great post" every week!

Wee bear and I celebrated at North ( a Fox concept restaurant)with Salted Caramel Budino with Salted Caramel sauce, Malfaldine sea salt and Creme fresh

It’s hard to believe that I started this blog two years ago!  When I started out, I thought my blog would be a great way to store my recipes for my children and maybe introduce you to a recipe you may have never tried before. I had no idea the friendships I would develop and the attention paid to a blogger. It has been fun and I am certain will continue to be.
