Happy New Year and Things to Come in 2011!

Happy New Year Everybody!!

I can’t believe 2011 is already here. Where did 2010 go? Just wanted to kick things off this year with a few updates about what I have planned for 2011.

I have once again signed up for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. This year, I will be walking in New York City in October with two of my friends. If anyone would like to join our team, let me know. I will start up my weekly Avon Walk updates around May when we start our training. If you’d like to make a donation to my walk, you can do so by clicking on the pink Avon Walk logo to the left or here.

I plan to continue doing my “Week Of” features. I have a few ideas in mind, but if you have an ingredient you’d like to see featured, let me know!

A new project that I’m excited to announce will be a weekly feature called Friday Favs. I have solicited some of my favorite bloggers to provide guests posts right here on Beantown Baker every Friday of the year. I chose these bloggers because they’re the people that make the cut when my Google Reader gets out of control and I have to downsize. They’re favs of mine for a variety of reasons and they represent a variety of topics. Most are food bloggers, but there are some decorating bloggers, life bloggers, arts and craft bloggers in the mix as well. Be sure to check out the Friday Favs tag on the right –> or the Friday Favs page up top ^ for all the posts. And check back every Friday to get a glimpse at one of my favorite bloggers.

Other than that, I plan to keep providing posts about the foods I’m making in our Boston kitchen, random food related Boston events, updates on my 30-by-30 list, and of course plenty of giveaways. You can also find me on Twitter or Facebook.

    I love the pairing of pomegranate and white chocolate. I’ve never eaten that flavor combination before but I can how imagine how good it tastes!
