    Hi Mary, I love these long posts of yours with links because I can just get lost looking back and then clicking on more links! It’s all so interesting and the food looks delicious!!! So tempting too! The shrimp and artichoke sounds wonderful–I had been planning to make it when you first posted but other things came up. Now it’s on the definite list for next week. Wishing you a happy and healthy 2013 and looking forward to many more posts from you! Linda

    Everything is so pretty as well as mouth watering. I am hungry just scrolling through. Hope your new year is off to a great start.

    My husband and I have had a little bout with the stomach virus after Christmas. Don’t want to go there anytime again soon!

  24. January 2, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    Mary, Your photos are so gorgeous! I am finally sitting down to see what I’ve missed in the last few weeks of Christmas preparation and celebration. All of this food looks amazing, but I think I will be holding off on doing too much cooking until I recover from over-indulgence!
    Happy New Year!

  25. January 3, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    I could live in your potting shed, it’s so darned cute!
