I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! I hope everyone had an enjoyable night last night, made it home safe and sound, and that no one is too hung over this morning :)
I have some pretty grand plans for 2009, many things that I want to try that are outside my usual comfort zone. I want to try my hand at making bread, become at least almost as good as Doug on the grill, and break into different Ethnic foods that I've never tried before. See, I told you they were grand plans!
But before we get started with this I thought I'd take a little look back at some of my favorite posts from 2008 (even though I have a couple things I haven't blogged yet, but oh well). I didn't blog much until April, but from then on I had a pretty good run of blog posts, especially after I joined Tuesdays With Dorie.
So, without any more delays, here are some of my favorite posts from the year that just was.
