Wow! What just flew by my head? Oh, that was 2021…wait a minute, 2021 was supposed to be better than 2020! What do you think? Was it better? It’s all a blur to me and it sure seemed like more of the same but in reality, 2021 was a bit of an improvement over 2020. I always feel optimistic this time of year and look forward to 2022 being healthy, happy, and prosperous for all of us. That, of course, starts with eating the right stuff on New Year's Day. Check out these New Year Recipes recommended by Sweet Daddy D!
