Happy New Year’s Eve, pal! I took a little (well, pretty long) hiatus from blogging but I plan to be back with a vengeance in 2012. I wasn’t away for any particular reason…just got caught up in real life. You know how it goes. 2011 was another fabulous year in Los Angeles but I am really looking forward to 2012, especially because I think this is the year the Dodgers will dominate in the playoffs!
If you are looking for a quick treat to whip up for whatever New Year’s festivities you may have on tap tonight, I highly recommend these rum balls that I have made many times this holiday season. The recipe comes from this book but I saw it on Spabettie’s blog. I replaced the bourbon with rum and the honey with agave nectar.
These are very boozey so be alert–if you don’t want a super rum-y taste, you should cut back on the amount of liquor a tad. I sent a tin of these with my friends going to a 49ers game and they were devoured at the tail gate.
Happy New Years from me and the pup! See you in 2012!
