A new blog to begin the upcoming new year. A warm welcome to those who have joined me. I'm looking forward to a day at home today. I have all the ingredients for a dinner of ham and jasmine rice. As well as an apple crisp for dessert. The apple crisp recipe comes from my new favorite cook book, "Clean Food" where I've learned I can enjoy really good food without any guilt (or getting sick, as I've food allergies). I enjoy cooking more-so when I have the time for it. I'll prepare The Purple Rose e-newsletter this morning until it's time to cook and of course watch the dolphins. Who knew they'd ever come this far again?!
