Happy New Year!

by Michele Pesula Kuegler | December 31st, 2007 | Drinks, Recipes

Putting away Christmas items and “undecorating” the tree today has put me in a reflective state of mind.  In the last six and a half months, I have shared daily events and recipes.  Each recipe about which I have written is part of a memory of this year.  There have been new foods tried, new family members added, and the adventure of writing a blog.

In the coming year, there will be new memories created.  With my love of food and cooking, I am sure that some food or beverage will be part of these memories.  I would venture to guess that some of the memories will even be based on new recipes that I try.

As you prepare to celebrate this New Year’s Eve, I hope it is an evening spent in the company of those you hold dear.  To compliment the closing of 2007 and arrival of 2008, I offer a simple recipe for you to enjoy.  I know that when the clock chimes midnight I will be sharing this recipe with the one I love.

I wish all of a you a new year filled with happiness.
