A New Year. It’s like starting the makings of a new recipe or making something delicious from scratch. I’m not really into “resolutions,” but I do see the benefits of putting my dreams into the universe, working my tail feathers off and being prepared when those dreams manifest. It’s all about making a recipe, mixing together the ingredients, and soaking up the flavors of a self-created delicious life. I invite you to join me in making this year your year, the year you made your life sweet and savory with a pinch of salt and a dash of citrus, balanced and yet your own.
Here is what I have in store….2013
