Happy New Year and Welcome 2014



Happy New Year!


Happy New Year!

Thank you for making 2013 a great year!  I look forward to continuing to share my passion for great tasting food in the coming New Year.  Why?  ‘Cause few things in life beats a great tasting meal!

I’d like to share two rituals for the turning of the New Year:  The Burning Bowl and The Grape Ritual

The Burning Bowl:  Take a few minutes to think about the negatives of the past year.  What are the things that held you back?  What monkey have you carried on your back?  What grudges or resentments have kept you from happiness and joy?  Write them down on a piece of paper.  Then take that paper and all those items (in a safe place outside, please) and light it on fire.  As that paper burns, let go of the negatives of the past and release them.  Feel the freedom of that release.

The Grape Ritual:  Take 10 or 15 minutes before the start of the New Year to write down the things you want to bring into your life going into 2014.  What are the goals that you have for yourself and your life?  What are those resolutions that you have for the New Year?  Write them down.  After the ball drops and you have sipped your champagne (if you do that) and kissed your loved ones, take a few minutes to read each item you have written down.  And after you read each one, eat a grape to plant the seed inside yourself to bring these into being this year.

I’d like to wish each of you a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!  May it be filled with abundance and flavor.
