Old and new

So here it is five years later and I'm back. A lot of things have happened in the time since I last wrote here. I moved. I was laid off from my job and am now basically self-employed. But most importantly I believe that I have finally found some peace and happiness. While it may not always be easy, I like where I am most of the time. But there are some things that never change.
I still make my tray for New Year's Eve but this year I decided to also make a dessert.
Profiteroles! The recipe called for coffee ice cream. I decided to mix it up and do half with vanilla bean ice cream. Tasty but a bit of work. Not sure if I will repeat the recipe. Who am I kidding? I will because one day I will conveniently forget the true amount of work involved. In the meantime, Happy New Year's!
