A 2013 Wish and a competition to kick start the year!

So I have been a little quiet blogwise over the last month but I expect you were all as busy as I was! December was hectic - lots of events to attend, friends to see, baking to do and helping to send my sister, nephew and her partner off to Australia. They are being missed already!! I love New Years though and the promise and potential that each year brings with it

2012 was a fantastic year in which I made the leap and decided to go all out with blogging. It has been a wonderful experience so far and not just in areas that I thought it would be - such as writing about what I love, improving my IT skills, trying out new restaurants and attending new events. Along the way there have been other fantastic outcomes. I have met some wonderful people along the way, been inspired countless times by the imagination and creativity of the food blogging community and been blown away by the sheer volume of events that took place in Ireland during the year. Blogging has also helped me settle into a brand new life in Meath by meeting people who live here and who have offered me great advice throughout the year.

I hope your 2012 was just as much fun but if it wasn't 2013 holds within it the promise of being great. So here's to a wonderful 2013, may all your wishes and dreams come true and remember life is always a work in progress!!

And to kick off 2013 in style here's a little competition for you all. Up for grabs are a copy of Rachel's Favourite Food at Home and Gordon Ramsay's Great Escape. Hopefully it will provide someone with the inspiration needed to get cooking!

Congratulations Deborah McCaffrey you are the lucky winner. Debbie said her New Year's resolution is 'to take all of my kitchen gadgets out from their hiding place in my utility room and start using them regularly...already dreaming of the breads, ice creams, casseroles and fresh pasta I'm going to enjoy in 2013!'. I hope the cookbooks help in putting those gadgets to good use!
