So a whole year has passed…

Hard to believe that another year has flown by!  As I was going through my blog over the past year I have realized a few things.  I bake way too much and our eating has become rather unhealthy in the later months of the year.  One of my goals for 2010 is to change all of this.

Anyway as I was going through the past year in food I picked out some of my faves to do a short round up…hope you like!

Short Ribs cooked Low and Slow:


Stuffed Cabbage Rolls or Golumkis:




Thyme and Rosemary Oven Roasted Beets


Tourtiere or French Canadian Pork Pie:


Pastel Azteca:


Lemon Curd and Pop Tarts


Grilled Tilapia Tacos with Pineapple Salsa:


Shrimp Burgers


Watermelon and Feta Salad


Salsa Chicken Enchiladas


Black Bean and Goat Cheese Quesadillas


Big and Bold Blueberry Muffins


Here’s to the New Year with wonderful food, family and friends!

Oh my gosh, Judy--it all looks wonderful! Canadian Pork Pie? My mom used to make it every year for Christmas. I've been totally missing it. Great round up!

wow great food on here, happy new year

Happy New Year! I like your idea of getting back to healthier recipes. I have a suggestion. How about taking out the white carbs (white sugar, white flour) out of the recipes? That would fit right in with your organic and whole grain side. I would really love that! It'd be even better if those great poolside cocktails you make could be low carb'd!!! If that's even possible! :D

Welcome to 2010 Judy. It is so full of possibilities. Can't wait to see what is in store for NFE if 2009 is any indication.
