Happy New Year everyone! I love the concept that new years are an opportunity to start the first page of a new diary. It’s a blank canvas waiting to be painted with your unique masterpiece. It belongs to you. You are in control and that is absolutely fantastic.
So, a few weeks ago I had a very intimate but incredible gathering in my home and was in complete awe of the beautiful energies exchanged in my own home. I just get really giddy and excited to have people over so I can cook for them. How cheesy am I? I mean, after all food and laughter are the ways to my heart so I love to share this with the people I love. The menu that night was really all about comforting yet sexy foods. For my meat eaters I made a delightful boeuf bourguignon a la Julia Childs with creamy herbed mashed potatoes. For my veggies I made a hearty pot pie. But really the piece de la resistance was the dessert. Sultry, sensual, decadent, melt in your mouth chocolate mousse. The best part? No one realized it was vegan. WINNING!
