New Years Celebration Free-For-All

Cheers to the New Year

2014 is almost here, and many of you are planning on ringing it in with friends and family gathered around you.  I am not a fan of New Year’s celebrations; I have spent way too many years regretting my companions and locations for celebrating the New Year.  I’ve been to Time’s Square, and refuse to even talk about that nightmare!  I’ve been to large parties, small gatherings, and just stayed at home sleeping through it all.  The one great thing about New Year’s though, is that calories don’t count.  It’s the last day of the year, things will change the next day…it’s a free-for-all day!  So here are some of Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck’s favorite recipes to ring in 2014, enjoy them before you start that life changing diet you’ve promised yourself you would go on after the New Year!
