Another Year and the 2013 Yada Yada Awards

Hey, do you believe I got happy New Year today? It's February
Elaine Benes (Seinfeld episode “The Dinner Party”)

I can’t believe another year is gone. I truly wish all of you a great 2014, and as I usually do I will leave the year with a recap of the highlights on 2012.

Fat Duck Eggs and Bacon Dessert
