Where to begin?

Even though I haven't posted in over a month I've been cooking and crafting and taking pictures to share with you. And now I'm well supplied with my own set of tri-ply stainless steel pots and pans, a set of corningware, cooking utensils, a waffle iron (which I've already made buttermilk waffles with cherry almond sauce with), a potato ricer, and 6 new cookbooks. Yes, 6. One from Cat Cora, one from Mario Batali, one from Ina Garten, one from Bobby Flay, a cupcake book, and a cookbook which I requested that's all about healthy cooking. And I'm DYING to try recipes from each one out.

From Cat Cora: her hot onion dip and wasabi salmon tea sandwiches, from Mario Batali: any of his pasta or pizza dishes (as if I needed any help loving those foods he makes them look even more incredible), from Ina Garten: her roasted tomato soup and lobster salad, and from Bobby Flay: mac and cheese carbonara. I already made the chocolate mousse cupcakes I was lusting after. As for the healthy one, there's a fettucine alfredo that I'd like to try.

Today is New Year's Eve and even though this is the PERFECT time to have a party so I can try some of these amazing-looking recipes, I find myself without any definite plans for tonight. So I don't know when/how I'm going to find an excuse to make a lobster salad appetizer, but I'll find a way.

In the meantime, I have pictures/posts for:
  • cauliflower gratin
  • peanut brittle
  • triple chocolate marble fudge (which I never took a picture of in the end so I might not post that one)
  • chocolate mousse cupcakes
  • eggs benedict
  • hot cocoa cookies
  • and **my finished afghan**
So look forward to those posts in the near future and I hope everyone had a great, relaxing Christmas and will have a fun, safe new year.
