I returned from a week in London yesterday, and I had the most incredible time filled with good food, laughs and making memories with my family.

I wanted to ring in the New Year by giving thanks to all of you for reading and supporting the creative outlet that is Satisfy My Sweet Tooth.  What better way to do that than by sharing some of my favorite things?

First up are two of the most beautifully photographed and creative cookbooks that I have had the pleasure of reviewing.

Sprinkles by Jackie Alpers

    The most memorable part of my year was seeing my daughter off to her first year of college. Sad time for me but exciting for her in this new stage of life. She is a beautiful girl inside and out and will make a fabulous nurse.
