With Thanksgiving behind us, we’ll move on to the next holidays of the season. But we’d be smart to keep the spirit of thankfulness alive and well. I’ll offer being thankful for all of you. I thank you for stopping by, for the Likes, the comments, for popping over to my deLizious facebook page. Gracias, merci, takk, and danke.
As well, I thank you for teaching me so many things on your blogs. I won’t name names as I could never list everyone, but your posts have given me much food for thought. New dishes, old favorites, cool cocktails, musings, laughs–it’s all good.
Even better are the friendships that have formed and are forming and will form. The Interweb does a magnificent job of pulling people from all over the globe together in one spot. My life has been enriched because I know you.
Case in point: Let’s talk KerryCan. KC has commented here and while I try to keep up with all of you, I’m not great at visiting all of you all the time. But food is a big hook and when I got whiff that Kerry MADE CHOCOLATES, I dropped everything to chase down her etsy page. And hoo boy. A couple of swoons and a few drools later, I had a shopping cart with four items. Order placed.
The items shipped quickly and besides being wow-ed by Kerry’s immense talent as a candy-maker, it was just plain fun to connect with someone I had thus far only traded in blog comments and Likes. Her candy is crazy delicious. Imagine the best chocolates you can, then multiply that fifty-fold. That’s how good it is.
My plans were to post individual pictures of every dreamy item I’d purchased, but the photo shoot never happened. Instead I’ll offer you Kerry’s amazing photos from her site. Just be sure to have smelling salts at hand for swoons and a napkin nearby to wipe drool.
Artisan Candy Bar (think gourmet Snickers)
(I shared this with foodie friends and they were all over it.)
Chocolate Marshmallow Bark (I was unwilling to share this with anyone!)
In that Thanksgiving spirit, then, I thank KerryCan for sharing her passion with us. And I thank all of you for doing the same. Here’s to a crazy-good finish to 2014 and all sorts of fun in the coming year!
