As I reflect on this past year two things really stand out to me. First, 2010 was a rollercoaster of a year for my family and I so going into 2011 I prayed desperately that 2011 would be one full of peace and stability. About a month ago I realized that my prayer was answered. It has been a year of much needed Sabbath for me and for that I am so grateful. The second is that it has been a year of wonderful food. Our garden was successful and what we didn't grow I found [organically] elsewhere. Some of my favorite recipes were born throughout this past year, which brings me to this post. I've put together a list of some of my absolute favorites.

May your new year be filled with anticipation, excitement, peace, contentment, and health. May you find time to realize and rejoice the goodness of this past year, reflect on what you desire in this next year, and find the boldness to ask for it. May you receive all that is necessary for you to enjoy a blessed 2012.

Grace and peace, friends.
