As I sit here writing the last blog of the year, I reflect back over these past few months, which have been a whirlwind with the 14th season of "Semi-Homemade Cooking," my magazine tour, and the release of my two latest cookbooks.
As we approach the end of the year, I'm sure we're all looking forward to welcoming 2011 with a bang. I can't wait for New Year's Eve, it's always so exciting celebrating and counting down, and this year will be the most special New Year of all. My sweetheart will be sworn in as the Governor of the State of New York at midnight. To us, it's a countdown to start working on making NY state and our country a better place. Part of that is making your friends and family happy – being festive of mind and heart.
If you're throwing a countdown party, you've come to the right place for hosting a fabulous New Year's Eve gathering. For cocktails, serve my elegant Pom Blanco and Champagne Sabayon. Pass around Caprese Mozzarella Salad Bites and Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Tarts for fast finger food, and enjoy the delicious sparkle of the New Year.
By the way, here's my Recipe of the Week: It's Chocolate Day tomorrow, December 28, so whip up a batch of my simple and sweet Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies for dessert or party favors. Everyone will love them!
This week, the January/February issue of Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade magazine is on newsstands so pick one up for clever tips and delicious recipes to start off the New Year.
