2010 Roundup + Have a Happy New Year

Like everyone says at the end of every year – where did the year go?

It always feels as though it’s just zoomed on past, especially the last few months.

I look back through 2010 where some exciting things have happened to my life and those around me.

On the cooking, baking and eating front – life has been full of sweet treats. I look forward to exploring and designing some of the desserts I have been thinking about. Although, as I’m sure everyone knows, time just flies – whether it be with work, family, friends or a high-maintenance garden. I still have my fingers crossed that I can accomplish or further some of the goals (cooking and personal) I have set for myself this year.

Best wishes to everyone. I hope you all have a fantastic New Year!!
