Old Year Passing...

The new year is only days away, and while this is usually my favorite time of year, this new years has taken a different kind of turn.  My dear, sweet Mother-in-Law, who I've been so lucky to call "Mom" for 45 years is slipping away from us.  At 97, she's lived a good, long, happy life, but somehow that doesn't make her passing any less difficult for the rest of us.

I tell you this because we are leaving to go be with her and the family, and it may be a while before I get back to the blog.  We're buying one-way tickets and will be with her for as long as we need to be there.

In the meantime, I wish you all a very wondrous New Year and hope that 2017 is your very best yet.  I hope to be back at some point with some new culinary inspirations, but in the meantime, have yourself some fun in the kitchen and be well....

💜
