First and foremost....I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!  I hope that your holidays are filled with family, good food and spending time with friends.

I'm happy to co-host with Alex of A Moderate Life on "The 12 Days of Bloggiemas" a celebration of food and recipes.  Every day for 12 days there will be a different theme you can participate in....

Today's theme for the 12 Days of Bloggiemas is .....10 Bubbling Casseroles!  Pull out your favorite casserole recipes that you've linked up and share the love of good food this season!

I wanted to send you all a holiday blessing, no matter what holiday you celebrate because you are all a wonderful part of my life and sharing the foodie love with you has been a huge blessing in my life!

A Foodie Blessing
May your garlic always be pungent, may your greens always be bitter, may your goat cheese always be tart and may your bread always rise! No matter what ingredients you have on hand, may you always, through your love of food and creative spark, make a meal to remember, to nourish and share with those you love!

The 12 Days of Bloggie-mas is a celebration of foodie love and recipes! Each day for 12 days we will be sharing a theme loosely based on the 12 Days of Christmas song, just for the fun of it. The point of the daily roundup is to give you a break over the holidays if you are not writing new content, but still allow you to share your older recipes, posts and blogging memories, so folks will "leaf through" your older stuff, which is all wonderful and new to many folks! WE all tend to think we are only as good as our front pages, but there is a huge wealth of materials in our blog "back catalogs" that we should be sharing with others!

What you need to do to join in the 12 Days of Bloggie-Mas!

Please stop by daily for a few minutes, find out the theme, browse your "back catalog" of archived posts, find an appropriate one, link it to the daily linky (there is a new linky every day) and place a back link to the hop. Please link back with 12 Days of Bloggie-mas as the anchor text. One linked recipe per blog per day. It is that simple! You can participate daily or only on the days you have time. No pressure! It is the holidays after all!
