Here we are, a full day into the New Year. New beginnings, new paths, new discoveries yet to find. Thanks everyone for another fantastic year of sharing thoughts; ideas and recipes. As we take those first cautious steps toward the adventures of yet another new year; I thought I’d look back one last time at what was. Times might have been rough, but the food was delicious! Here are twelve recipes that seemed to strike your fancy.Continue reading “The Best of a Wild and Crazy Year”
Can you believe it? Another year over. When I was young, time seemed to stand still. Now it seems if I blink a day or a week or even a month has suddenly flown by. The nice thing about a new year is that we get to start fresh. It’s also nice to take one last glance at what had been.
Today’s scheduled post for Family Style Spaghetti has been postponed. There was something oddly “wrong” about posting a family style recipe and brushing aside the significance of this day. Eighteen years – that’s a long time, a lifetime for some, and our country has yet to fully heal. The wounds are deep. For some the anger runs even deeper. Something happens when an entire nation drops to their knees and weeps. I wish I could say God turned it around, made everything right again, but that’s not entirely true.
One year ago today, on February 8, 2018 I brought together three of my favorite pastimes, cooking, photography and writing in one modest blog. With the launching of Rosemarie’s Kitchen, I dared to invite strangers to pull up a chair, help themselves to a cup of coffee and chat a while as we cooked together. Food was always the number one subject, but not the only one. There were memories, and rants and thoughts that floated out across the pages. Many of you have been here from the beginning, others joined in later as the adventure continued. It’s been one heck of a year.
I know, this is a food blog – but every now and again, I am not in the mood for sharing a recipe so much as I feel the desire to invite you in for a visit and to chat a while. I don’t know about you, but looking toward the new year makes me think about the past.
