I'd also like to take this space to briefly thank the people who voted for me for a Homie Cooking Award (sponsored by The Kitchn)! I'd tell you all to go and vote for me, but even I realized this too late. The first round of voting is in and I didn't make the final cut, but it was just really nice to see that people (even though they were only two people) gave me a vote. So thanks again! It means a TON to know I'm not just talking to myself out here. Trust me.
Anyway, I'm just relaxing here; prepping some food for a potluck New Years party this evening. (I'm making a Kale and Gorgonzola Gratin with a Panko crust.) So, as I sign off for the last time this year, I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year! Happy New Year, everyone!
