I've had a rough past two weeks. Sort of a rough year, really. Lots of amazing things happened in 2011, though! But honestly, food has been a wonderful constant throughout the year. Food, family and friends. Best things a person can have.

So back to food, (writing about my family & friends would take up several volumes of encyclopedias-24+ first cousins plus their children, not to mention aunts, uncles, high school friends, college soul mates, Hollins friends, friends I've made at various jobs....way too much to write), I reunited with my kitchen utensils Friday night when I made Avocado Salad for a potluck. (Are potlucks strictly an East-Coast thing, I wonder?) Sunday afternoon I made Coconut Cupcakes with Coconut Frosting for my friend Steve's birthday. Monday was all about Butternut Squash Soup, I devoted yesterday to Vegan Chili and this evening meant experimenting with Rum-Ball inspired Kahlua Cookie Bites.
