"Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man."
HAPPY NEW YEAR! I really cannot believe it is 2011, the time just flies by! As much as I love to cook, spending hours in the kitchen making meals and cleaning up after them is a big bummer. Over the next year I am going to share some wonderful, easy recipes with you, hopefully you will be able to spend more time doing other things besides slave in the kitchen. Enjoy!
"One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things."
