The year of 2012 was filled with chocolate, brown butter, coconut and caramel. This little blog went from Blogspot to self-hosted WordPress and from few followers to few thousand. I couldn't be more grateful for all of your comments and emails. It makes my day to hear that you loved my recipe and it inspired you to put your own twist on it. That's the goal: to get you into your kitchen and create fabulous treats!
The goals for 2013 are simple: share more delicious recipes and grow the friendships we've created.
May your wishes for the New Year come true!
