I think I'm finally recovering from the insanity that was my house on Saturday.
I decided to hold an 'appetizer and dessert tasting party'. The basic idea was to try out a bunch of the recipes that I have in my books under the guise of a Christmas Party. I was cooking pretty much non-stop from noon until 7pm when everyone came. It all turned out decent, I wasn't thrilled with all of it, but I guess that's the way it goes. The Whitmores, Haltermans, O'Learys and the Horrocks all came and we had a great time. If you missed it, you should be sad. There were some of you out there who I sent invites to but you never looked at them -- your loss ;)~ We'll catch you next year. I've posted the recipes along with the alterations I would make on my recipe blog -- follow the link on the side bar.

Wish we could have been there. Really. I was home very very sick in bed.

What a great idea to have a recipe blog. Lots better than wearing out a book that you can't pass along all of your favorite recipes to your kids. I have started a community boutique blog for homemade stuff. I just barely started it so there's only a few things on there. If you want to post something or know someone who would like to then let me know. Oh by the way thanks for being the best visiting teacher I ever had. Hope you guys have a very merry christmas!

I'm still lamenting that we couldn't go. I know I missed out because you are a wonderful cook.
