at peace with your neighbors,
and let each new year find you a better man."

It's a good thing that I have not had enough time to make all those delicious recipes.

Oh my, it would be New Years Resolutions galore, even more than usual.

This one looks sooooo good.

Joey, don't you love this quote? Ben sure had a way with words. Your picture look so refreshing! Makes my mouth water.

I hope things are going okay with you-you are in my thoughts. May your New Year be a blessed one.

How did you know I was craving freshly baked scones this week and plotting how to convince my harried husband to try making some? These sound divine. I LOVE anything with fresh lemon!

Most delicious, Cameron! I must admit to adding a few more cranberries to nibble on while cooking (are you peeking in my window)!

You've had a HUGE week, dear Jen! Believe me, if you lived closer, I'd be over with a warm basket of these scones. My prayers are with you and your father throughout the New Year.

... and I think of you so often, dear Beckie ~ yes, I love this quote and TRY living by it. It's been quite a year, hasn't it? I so wish you and your family (mine also) a blessed and healthy New Year!

Thank you, Philip. I love the smell of fresh zest and if you hang around here awhile, you'll see I can't live without lemons, always a filled basket in my kitchen (limes also).

This sounds so good. I love anything with cranberries and/or citrus. I put some cranberries in my orange nut recipe and it turned out good.

Not surprised, Marnie ~ great combos are always good. My dream is for all who wish to cook, to 'step out of the box' and simply cook! How bad can it be? This is how all great recipes come about. ((Hugs))
