Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year everyone!!  I hope that everyone had as wonderful of a holiday as I had!

My much needed break was just what the doctor ordered (although, now I keep thinking, how long until retirement?  I could so get used to not working!!!).  I am ready for the new year and all that it will bring with it.... good, bad, or indifferent... bring it on!!

I will be back tomorrow with all new recipes, but, I will also be doing things a little differently around here.  I used to worry about posting every day.. well no more.  There is no reason to put that kind of pressure on myself.  I have been cutting back anyway, but the guilt has still been there up until now.  From here on out, I'm going to post when I can.  My goal is to post Monday, Wednesday and Friday - it might happen, it might not, but either way, I'm no longer going to pressure myself - life is too short for that!

Anyway, I ramble... :)

May 2013 be filled with peace, love and tons of good food!!!

P.s.....can you believe I just celebrated my 3rd blogiversary (December 28th, 2009 was my first post!)????  OMG, where did the time go???  Just wanted to say thank you to all who have stuck with me through the years.... And of course, a big thanks to all my new followers too!  Hope to bring you even more amazing recipes in the new year!

Welcome back! I've missed you! I am so, so, so sympathetic about the need to feed the blog and the attendant guilt when you don't. We can't put that kind of pressure on ourselves - no one else is doing it to us, after all - and we can't miss out on life and love while we sit typing or trying to make meatloaf look pretty. You know those of us who love you will look forward to every post, even if they're not daily ... :)

Jenn,
Thank you for all the great recipes. Yes, I hear about feeling guilty, but no worries here. I understand about enjoying life away from the screen too. :)
Happy 2013

Happy New Year to you and yours Jenn, good plan to cut back - no sense in driving yourself crazy and not enjoying it! will always enjoy your recipes whenever they appear!

Happy New Year to you too Jenn!!! I used to blog much more than I do now and I know the feeling of feeling pressured to blog a new recipe very often. Now I blog when I want to and when I feel like I have something really good to share. I may blog again every day if that's what I feel like doing or just post one or two a week (at the most)! Just enjoy yourself....

Happy New Year Jenn. Look forward to your new Mon. Wed, Fri. schedule. Congrats to you for making that decision. You probably already feel less pressure. I have a full time job so about the most I can do is twice a week.
