Tomorrow is the last day of 2013.

Was it a good year for you?  I sure hope so; it was an amazing year for my family.

I love New Years Eve, not so much for the “party” aspect of it, but more I love looking back over the last 12 months and dreaming about what the next 12 might hold.

Party or not, food is a BIG part of our little family’s  NYE plans.


Buffalo BlueCheese Pinwheels


When I visited Pillsbury a few weeks ago, the first part of our kitchen time was spent making appetizers.  They were all quick, easy, of course delicious, and just begging to be made for NYE.

Sheryl and I made Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels, and my first thought was  “I bet these would be great buffalo style.” That is just what I did.
