The S&C Annual, “These Are a Few of My Favorite Postings”

This is my FOURTH year of blogging and time for my now annual “These Are A Few of My Favorite Postings” (for my previous attempts, click here or here).

I have a strange obsession with The Sound of Music so I urge you to sing along as you read this and please forgive the rather crude missteps in my unpoetic rhythm and rhyme.

Peppermint Cupcakes And Quaint Cookie Mittens
Crisp Scottish Shortbread, I’m totally smitten.
Homemade Chai Spice Mix tied up in strings
These are a few of my favorite postings!

Tart Chocolate Orange Cakes and Crisp Apple Strudels
Gingerbread Spice Loaves  and Brodo with Noodles
Cranberries tucked into Spiked Bread Puddings
These are a few of my favorite postings!

Gorgeous Stuffed Grape leaves inhaled by the masses
Hazlenut Martinis make us fall on our a**es
Golden, soft Challah with fancy braidings
These are a few of my favorite postings!

When the Pie Burns!
When Souffles Flop!
When I’m Feeling Sad…
I simply remember my favorite postings,
And then I don’t feel so bad!

Happy New Year to all and may 2014 bring a quieter earth, a more peaceful existence and much happiness.
