Today is the last day to sign up for this cookbook giveaway. Just leave a comment on today’s post and you will automatically be entered!  Can’t think of a comment, how about — what are you doing this New Year’s Eve?  or What is your new year’s resolution?  One of mine is that I am going to make every effort to take recycled bags into the grocery store with me!  I have 5 or 6 bags in the car with me and I don’t ever remember to take them in to the store until I am in the check-out line.  We are a recycling family.  We split out our garbage and compost it, we recycle cans, plastic, wood, grass, yard clippings, and yet I can’t remember to take bags into the store with me.  Consequently I have a huge bag of plastic bags all the time.  While I do reuse them, I certainly don’t need as many as I have.  I sure hope I can do this for the next 21 grocery store trips — and make a habit of it!  Wish me luck 🙂

2011 – 2012

Tomorrow is my last blog post for this year!  I started this blog in May after 2 previous unsuccessful attempts.  I am thrilled to say it is a habit that has stuck and I love cooking, taking pictures and bloggin’ about it!  Looking back as we are moving forward into 2012 here are a couple pictures I particularly like. If you click on the picture it will take you to the recipe when it was posted. Starting with Garlicky Romano Beans
Freshly Canned Tomato Sauce and Tomato Juice

Yellow Cake with Yummy Chocolate Glaze

Alice’s Chicken Salad
Abigail’s Blueberry Scones

Homemade Wheat Bread
And finally, a recipe perfect for a New Year’s Eve appetizer!
Garlic Basil Cheese Puffs

Many Blessings and Happy Cooking!

  1. Hi Catherine! I have really enjoyed your blog since the end of the summer! I love the scripture verses at the top of each! (Always a good time to read scripture!) So many New Year’s Resolutions…one of mine has always been to be more organized and use my time more efficiently- maybe this is the year for me! I will also send you that recipe that Cory told me to send you in early December…I wasn’t sure how to do it, but I will call him and have him refresh me on how! Happy New Year!!

  2. Catherine, as long as I’ve known you, you were ALWAYS a great cook, but I’m proud of the photographer — and blogger — you’ve become in 2011! Congratulations to you for a job VERY well done!
    In 2012, my resolution is to become actively more active each day, and to lose a minimum of 20 lbs … Seems somewhat daunting right now, but I CAN DO IT if I just put my mind to it! Here’s to a healthy 2012!
