Just the other day, I was thinking about how my view of the 21st century differed from what it actually became. I was convinced that we would all be wearing space suits and eating food similar to what astronauts consume on their space ships. Logical, right? The best part is that I was sure of these things in 1995, giving the world only 5 short years to get its act together and make these things happen.
I'm happy to report that I was completely wrong.
A lot happened this year. I turned 30; that was pretty big. I started Set the Table; that was awesome. A lot of other good things happened. Some sad things happened. All of them made me a very different person from what I was at the start of 2013 and I am grateful for that.
Another thing I am endlessly grateful for is the support and love you all have shown me through reading my posts, trying my recipes, and generally appreciating the work that goes into this blog. It's been absolutely wonderful in so many ways. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
To celebrate this past year, I wanted to share the top recipes from Set the Table. You people sure do love your cocktails! But thankfully there is also some food in there. You know, to even things out.
Perfect Roast Chicken
Cheers to you all, friends! And Happy New Year!
