Happy New Year

Wishing you all the very best in 2009!

I contemplated many a champagne cocktail and after trying, maybe a few too many, this year’s winner is a classic:

1 Part Crème de Cassis, Blackcurrant Liquor
4 Parts Chilled Champagne or Sparkling Wine

Easy and delicious to celebrate for the upcoming year.
All the health and happiness to you!

Valentine Twist

I wracked my brain, I wrote recipes out, took the pictures and as the days came the sugar began to make my sweetteeth ache.

I’m glad somebody loves me, since I’m sure I’ve packed on at least another five pounds this week alone with all the cake and truffle attempts. Delectable, yes, but honestly a girl can only take so much. I’ve made sure to love thy neighbour, my kid’s class, my parents, my and otherwise plus, anyone and everyone willing to have me pawn off my sweet kitchen offerings.

So then what was the Valentine’s celebrations here, you ask? Heart shaped pizzas and a French Martini to wash it down, now there’s an aging relationship with glamour.
