The Christmas holidays are over and finally I come to you to write here again. Hopefully you have beautiful and relaxing days spent with your loved ones and have only found rants under the Christmas tree. For my part I can not complain in this regard.
Hardly Christmas is behind us, preparations begin for New Year's Eve. We spend this day this year, not as usual with the family, but with friends take part in an organized event, including New Year's Eve buffet and everything that goes in part. This saves quite a bit of pre-planning and stress, which is thus always connected. Finally, you do not want to dish out the usual New Year's Eve – at least that's always the case with us.
A finishing touch on your menu could you achieve with today's dessert: crepes Suzette. This dessert not only tastes delicious idolatrous, but makes for great “Aahs” and “Ohhs” your guests when you flambéed crêpes only at the table.
