Pate de Fruits recipe

What is it about ringing in a new year that makes everything seem so fresh, possible and…well, new? I mean, it’s not like the world just magically changed in the span of 24 short hours, at least not my world. All of the problems and issues in my life that existed on December 31 were still lurking there on January 1. Yet, when I woke up that morning, I felt different – lighter and “newer”. As I showered, it literally felt as though pounds of apathy and malaise were melting off of me I emerged energized and motivated for what 2010 has in store for me.

It’s not that I’d been feeling particularly BAD. I just hadn’t been feeling particularly GOOD. And, when I don’t feel good, I just can’t be very creative, and that includes writing scintillating blog posts and taking droolworthy photographs. So, now that I've got my mojo back, I want to share one of my new favorite things with you.
