Happy New Year!

Happy {belated} New Year!! I hope that everyone had a fabulous start to the new year and enjoyed a holiday season full of good food, laughter, family and friends.

My holiday season (especially New Year’s) was pretty much all hockey, all the time. I spent New Year’s Eve morning at the Penguins/Capitals Alumni Game, as part of the Winter Classic festivities. The rest of the day was spent enjoying all of the activities going on outside of Heinz Field. Including being 5 feet away from Mario Lemieux. Definitely a highlight. New Year’s Day was spent getting ready for the Winter Classic, then tailgating before the Winter Classic, and finally attending the Winter Classic. At night under the lights was awesome. Beyond bummed that we lost, but the experience and the atmosphere was amazing.

Now I’m back in the kitchen and ready to bring you some great recipes in 2011!

How did you ring in the New Year?
