Get ready for the Countdown to 2012!

What a week it has been!  Sorry that I don’t have a new recipe for you today… I just haven’t gotten that far this week.  We are in our last week of classes, and next week is finals week, which means I’ve had lots of students in my office talking about their projects and exams.  Oh, and I have piles of grading too.  But, the good news is – there is light at the end of the tunnel!  I love Christmas season because there is truly a break to relax and spend time with family. 

And, you know what follows Christmas… right?!  Yep, 2012.  That means it’s time to announce this years countdown!


Countdown to 2012

Starting December 26 and running through December 30, please join us in recapping 2011 and looking ahead to 2012.  Each day, we’ll highlight our best recipes from 2011, and invite you to link up your recipes too!  Last year so many of you shared your favorites from 2010 – I can’t wait to see a recap of 2011’s best recipes.
