A popular question right now and also a very beautiful song by Ella Fitzgerald.

In past years I have celebrated big and small. Warm and cold. Quiet and loud. These days my celebrations tend to be more quiet than loud but always include some reflection on the year behind and some consideration of the year ahead.
I also use the New Year as a catalyst to de-clutter my house and usually spend January/February cleaning out forgotten drawers and closets. There is something about February with its brighter days and lighter snows that always puts a little spring in my step. Perhaps even more than the month of April which for most New Englanders marks the hope of spring.
I would like to say thanks to all my visitors and readers this year, old and new, who took a moment from their busy lives to read about my latest cooking creations. A special thanks to new friend Rachelle !!
So whether you celebrate big and loud….
Or small and quiet…
Make it great and safe and…
