Goodbye 2006, Hello 2007!

Happy New Year message from Milk and Cookies (Carrot Cake Cookie Sandwich)

Wow! What a year!

It’s been a year of adventure, and a year of challenge,
a year of great joy and achievement; a year of sorrow and mourning.

A year of weddings,
a year of birthdays,
a year of newborn babies.

Mountains and valleys,
exhilaration and despair.
Rough seas, and torturous blows
have shaken us to the core,
but we are still standing.

A year of blessing, a year of opportunity.
A year of great favour,
A year of grace.

Friendships were made,
bonds were cemented
Memories were made,
etched into eternity,
never to be forgotten.

It’s been one heck of a year,
Let’s do it all again, Bring on 2007!!

2006 is the year I started this blog, so it will always go down in history as the year I decided to step out of my comfort zone and embark on something new and foreign. As I tip toe, and feel my way through this venture called food blogging, I know I will stumble upon more and more unlikely surprises. I can't wait.

Above, is a little taste of what has been happening in my kitchen. Look out for it in 2007!

I wish you and your loved ones a safe and Happy New Year!!

Love Jen xxx

Happy new year, JenJen--

You talked about finding something new by stepping outside your comfort zone. As the years go by, I'm discovering there are so many interesting surprises to be had by doing just that. Keep it up!

Looking forward to more great food and great insights from you.
