Happy New Year 2012!

In November 2011, I renewed my domain registration for mycookingmemories.com for another year.    I began my blog on 1/3/2011 and had made a committment of doing the blog for one year.  I wanted to share the recipes of my mother, mother-in-law, and myself and by doing so encourage others to make family memories, too.  As the year came to an end, I knew that I had to make a decision about my blog.  I have shared all of the recipes that I had originally planned to share as well as some new recipes that had been placed in my recipe box for safekeeping.  It was nice to get those recipes out and try them and then pass them on to you.  The recipes that I have shared will remain on my blog.  They will be listed monthly with all of the recipes for that month.  Just look on the right side of the blog to find all of my recipes for my first year of blogging for 2011.  

I am grateful for the opportunities my blog has given me.  I was able to do two food spreads for Good Taste Magazine.  The second food spread will appear in Good Taste's March/April 2012 issue.  It will be packaged with Wiregrass Living Magazine.  I also prepared food gifts for Christmas gifts and packaged them for a photo shoot for Wiregrass Living Magazine's November/December 2012 issue.  The pictures taken by Brian McDonald for Good Taste and Wiregrass Living Magazine are incredibly beautiful.  Thank you, Brian.

I know that my sister, daughter-in-law, and bestest friend made my recipe for Chicken and Dressing for the first time for Christmas.  Have any of my recipes encouraged you to cook something special for your family, too?  Please share your comments with me.  I would love to hear from you.

The plan for my blog for this year is to continue to share recipes with you. They will be recipes that I find in my collection (that continues to grow) of recipe books (remember I enjoy looking at recipe books as much as I do magazines) as well as recipes that are shared with me by my friends and family.  I don't ever want to stop learning in this area of my life either. 

I still dream of one day having a recipe book printed with all of my beloved recipes that will be available for sale to the public.  I want it to be a hardback book with beautiful pictures (taken by Brian McDonald!).  I might as well dream big, right?  If anyone believes this could be a real possibility for me, please share your thoughts on this with me. 

Best wishes for 2012.  May we seek to have a personal relationship with a loving God who seeks to have a personal relationship with us.
