Happy New Year to all of you wonderful cooks. It has been a pleasure hosting Weekend Bites with Adelina from Home Maid Simple for the last two years, but it is time to say goodbye to our Friday food party. 

We both have new plans for the coming year.  I am going to seriously start working on a cookbook. I'm sure you understand, but I will miss checking out your recipes each week, though I'm certain I will click on your postings on other linky parties. I always do! 


May 2015 be a healthy and prosperous year for you and your family!!!!

Diane






Instead of features this week. I would like to say a special thank you to the bloggers who have been the most loyal to this party. I appreciate you being with us every week.




Winnie from Something Sweet


Annamaria from Bakewell Junction

Linda from With a Blast

Annie from Annie's Noms




Katherina from Culinary Flavors




Catherine from Living the Gourmet


This list doesn't look long enough, so I'm sure I've missed a few... but please know I have genuinely appreciated your visiting and contributing to this party each week.
