Happy New Year!

Hello Everyone-

I am very much looking forward to my small New Years Eve get together this evening.    I’ve been puttering around my house, cleaning, organizing, vacuuming…I think I’m finally ready.

Here’s my final menu:

Crab cakes with roasted red pepper aioli-I bought a 1 lb. can of crab claw meat from Whole Foods..OMG, so good!
Fried calamari with marinara dipping sauce-This is pretty quick, only about a minute in the oil.  Serving with fresh lemon wedges.
Assorted olives and baguette-Straight foward, salty and delicious!
Parmesan and garlic stuffed mushrooms-These bake in a little beef broth for about 20 minutes.
Ham and gruyere swiss cheese in puff pastry.  Already baked, just needs a little warming and cut into squares.  Sort of an updated grilled cheese!

And for dessert….

Berries and mascarpone cream
Cinnamon streusel cheesecake squares
Chocolate chip cookies

I look forward to another year of cooking and experimenting with you!

Have a Happy New Year!
