New Year’s Eve Appetizers and Drinks

I always enjoy a gathering of appetizers where I can pick and choose my favorites, and pile them on a plate one by one.

I think there’s something in my brain that tells me that because they’re small the calories don’t count as much…so please don’t burst my bubble. After all, diet season is right around the corner so we can worry about those pesky additional pounds then.

Until then…Happy New Year! Let’s Party!!

Pumpkin Spice Martini

The first time I’d had a pumpkin spice martini was on vacation while we were spending a little time at the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, California.

After my initial sip, I knew it was something I wanted to recreate upon returning home. 

The result is my version of a Pumpkin Spice Martini, and it’s a good one.
