Brandy and I want to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated. Your recipes were all spectacular! Everything was fabulous, festive, and looked delicious.
A quick announcement for our All Through the Year Cheer New Year’s Event: Due to the huge overlap between Christmas and New Year’s (wow, will it really be 2010 in less than 2 weeks?!), Brandy and I decided that instead of doing a recipe round-up, we’ll just be posting one (or two, if time permits!) New Year’s related recipes. The next event that we’ll be doing a regular round-up for is Valentine’s Day.
Brandy and I wish you and your families a safe, happy, and very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

A big congrats goes out to Tiffany for her beautiful Sugared Cranberry Clafoutis! Brandy and I chose this recipe as our winner because we felt like every aspect of it says Christmas…the cranberries themselves, plus the fact that they’re sugared (sugar plums, anyone?), as well as the lovely red and green from the cranberries and sage. Tiffany will be receiving a one-year subscription to Cooking Light magazine…please email us your address and we’ll have that sent out!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
