Well here we are toe to toe. It's been a crazy year in our house and a busy year in blog world too. I'm sitting here with a cup of dark hot chocolate munching on these yummy treats thinking about what's ahead.
It's been a year full of first experiences for me. I started exercising and ran my first race. I was published in the launch issue of a national magazine for the first time. I hand finished some furniture for our home. I started a new job that brings me immense joy. I volunteered in my community. I learned that putting yourself out there can be exhilarating and heartbreaking all at the same time.
I learned to truly appreciate you too, dear readers. The sheer love of good food connects us all over the world. Your comments and questions help this become a better place. Help me become a better baker, blogger, writer. Your patience with me through some long silences has really been appreciated.
Here's to you my friends. To a new year full of firsts. More joy, highlights and surprises. Be kind to one another. Step out of your comfort zone. Forgive someone.
I wish you all the best.
Happy New Year!
Note: The recipe that follows is for the marshmallows only. I piped the marshmallow kisses on a baking sheet for regular marshmallows as well as on top of shortbread cookies that I dipped in chocolate. A must try!
About Joshua Speaks
Can’t think of a day that that Josh didn’t have a beer or two. Be it a long day of work or of nothing. Sometimes, it is a few packs even. Especially when there are familiars over.
His fridge is packed with beers: Heineken, Corona, Guinness, Budweiser, and all other wierd brands in between. He had to get a secondary 30 cu. fridge off Craigslist for more beer storage.
Sometimes he wonders if a day truly starts only after the first sip of beer for the day. Enough talk about Josh and his passion; that’s the reason for this beer blog and related items. Feel free to hit on him. Start with something like: “hey beer head!” You got the idea!
