-:- catching up

I hope each of you experienced merriment and relaxation over the holidays - and now here we are, in 2013. I can already tell it's going to be a great year.

I really meant to stop by this space to let you know I'd be missing for awhile, but got so swept up in Christmas preparations that it slipped under the radar. I'm back now, and though I have so much to tell you about, I thought I'd ease back into this space with a few photographs from way back in 2012.

-:- Sriracha nuts - a gift for Mr. - recipe found here. I cut the sugar down to 1/4 c. (instead of 2 c.) and used about 3 tablespoons of sriracha.

Wishing each of you a bright, peaceful, wonderful New Year filled with many, many good things.
