How was your 2011? I feel so blessed to be able to share my year with you. I did a lot of flirting in 2011… with the places I visited (Capri, St. Barths, St Tropez, Paris, Provence, Miami and more), with the extraordinary people I met, and of course, with the meals I ate and the food I touched, tasted, smelled and cooked. Among the highlights were outrageous cooking parties for extraordinary groups of men and women, teaching a Sensual Cooking Class to a group of beautiful women in lingerie, planning events for several outstanding charities that make a real difference in people’s lives, instructing two 13-year-old-boys on how to properly use a Chef’s knife, partnering with Blend TV to make cooking videos and much more. It was a creative and successful year.
I look forward to seeing what 2012 has in store for all of us! Here’s a little treat to help you plan your New Years menu. Be sure to watch this video on Amazing Hors d’oeuvres before you do your shopping. A couple of weeks ago, Fabulous at 60 host Andrea Warshaw-Wernick stopped by my home to chat about cocktail parties and fabulous hors d’oeuvres for any season. We had a great time together as you can see!!
Tomorrow night, as I will welcome in 2012, I will have this Holiday Flirtini Cocktail in my hand. It is delicious and festive at any time of year but perfect for New Years Eve.. Cheers!!
2 cups Vodka
1 cup Triple Sec
1 cup pomegranate juice
1 cup white cranberry juice
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
Fresh pomegranate seeds and lime for garnish
Combine the Vodka, Triple Sec, pomegranate juice, cranberry juice, and lime juice in a pitcher and refrigerate until ready to use. Pour into martini glasses and serve immediately. Garnish each glass with a few pomegranate seeds and a sliver of lime or lime zest.
I have a lot going on in 2012, so let’s keep in touch!! After the Holidays, you’ll need my recipes for a Healthy New Year class on Jan 17th and 18th. . As always, my upcoming cooking classes are posted on my website, Pamela Morgan’s Flavors.
Wishing you health, happiness, and deliciousness in 2012!
