January, could it be any longer, grayer?

The 21 day cycle is over for all you resolutionistas. Congratulations! I’m taking this time to pour over beautiful feast for the eyes and stomach cookbooks, picture books really and I am reminded of how much I love to cook for my friends. I think this is the best blah buster out there. Find a gorgeous recipe make it easy make it a challenge try something new or make your favorite tried and true and make it for your friends. Everyone comes over with something, a new CD, a new  wine, hysterical pictures or stories from the holidays and the happiness of knowing they’re going to enjoy a night of great food, music and company that didn’t break the bank and feels like a night out but everyone stayed in. It’s the best.
