Happy New Year 2013!

Just a quick note, wanting to wish you all a 

*~*~ Happy New Year 2013 *~* !!!

 Hopefully you won't feel like this cat after the holidays! ;)

To finish this year off, just a few pics of dishes I've been making these past weeks! (Some are repeat recipes I've blogged about before.)

'Hearty Vegan Meals for Monster Appetites'

 My own 'creation' (cooking 1 c lentils & 1 c rice w/4 c water in my rice cooker, steaming some carrots at the same time. Adding some peas, salt & pepper, done!)

From 'Oh She Glows'

I honestly can't remember right now from which cookbook that recipe was! *eek*
I hope I'll remember as it was darn tasty too!!!

 My veganized version of Cleo Coyle's Doughnut Muffins 

And of course, for today on New Year's Eve, a black-eyed peas dish , thanks to Susan from Fat Free Vegan (click link).

Merry Christmas!

I know, I know... it's been too long since I've blogged the last time.. for Thanksgiving as a matter of fact.. and here we are, at the next holiday!

Life was very busy & stressful these past months and I just had no extra spare time or better say not the right calmness to blog.. Mea culpa!!!
I won't promise to get better -yet!- since we're about to face a big avalanche of action within those next upcoming months!  End of February we're [finally!] leaving Sicily, after almost 5 years of having lived here then, and return to PA with a short stop-over in VA. 
Before we're sitting in the plane for the USA we'll have quite a bit to do though, with our move etc. so please forgive me if this blog will be 'dormant' for a while! ;-)
[I will try to blog a few more times before that though! I'm just not promising anything, just in case... ;) ]

For now, let me wish you all a very 

and a wonderful & happy New Year 2013!!!
