It’s that time of year again when we look back with fond and sometimes not so fond memories of the year behind us. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of my followers a very happy and healthy New Year , looking forward to sharing my cooking with all of you in 2013. These are some of the moments I remember:
Sandy Hook -Newtown Tragedy. There are just no words that can express the level of sadness that this tragedy fills me with. Aurora, Colorado this past summer, senseless acts of violence. My hope is for a future that never has another tragedy like this, with some new gun reforms in place, please.
Superstorm Sandy. Unfortunately, I was in NY for this one. It was no fun and #sandysucks was my motto throughout. My heart goes out to all the families who lost so very much due to this storm. Shout out to Chris Christie for just being one hell of a guy during those days.
Our 44th President, Barack Obama.
Locking Jerry Sandusky up for good. Good riddance.
Say bye-bye to TomKat but Rhea and Danny??? Really???
My new TV loves: The Newsroom and Girls. And I finally got to catch up with Downton Abbey and can’t wait for the new season.
David Petraeus, are you kidding me?? You threw it all away for what???
Mazel tov to Princess Kate and Prince William on the pregnancy.
2012 Olympics – breakout stars Gabby Douglas and Ryan Lochte and how wonderful it was to watch them in action.
Psy and his Gangnam Style (how do they think this stuff up?).
Farewell to Andy Griffith, Larry Hagman, Ernest Borgnine, Donna Summer, Whitney Houston, Nora Ephron, Robin Gibb, Dick Clark, Neil Armstrong, Mike Wallace, Davy Jones, and Ben Gazzara. These were just some of the celebrity deaths that touched me.
Welcome Back to Broadway Annie!
My three most favorite movies of the year: The Intouchables, Lincoln and my personal favorite to win Best Picture, Zero Dark Thirty.
Lindsay is still a red hot mess, won’t someone help that girl clean up?
Linsanity, YOLO, and Fiscal Cliff , some new words to add to the vernacular.
Lance stripped of all his titles, so very sad for me and the sport, I loved that guy.
Giants winning the Superbowl.
A new wonderful James Bond movie with Adele singing the title song “Skyfall”.
Last but not least, my husband, Joel turning the big 60 – Happy Birthday to the love of my life.
