Welcome 2012 with Cajun Black Eyed Pea Dressing

Well grocery lovers the year is coming to an end and quite frankly I am thankful. I welcome 2012 with open arms. I truly feel that this new year will bring terrific change for the sisters and our families! As I sit here writing this morning and reflecting on 2011 there is joy along with sadness. Looking back on the months gone by, as a new year starts and an old one ends, I contemplate what brought us joy. Amy and I have been so blessed this year with new opportunities and becoming closer than two sisters could possibly be. Remembering how we enriched our lives by sharing countless hours formulating recipes, cooking, blogging, working on our cookbook. I would not trade all those tired nights for anything. We have grown in so many ways and it has allowed us to become better stronger women. We are looking forward to fresh, revitalizing interests, a variety of different new recipes, meeting interesting new people, material and personal successes and to make this new year the best one yet.

We hope this new year finds you healthier and happier, peaceful, content and satisfied.
Happy New Year!
