Top 10 Posts From My Kozy Kitchen for 2012

WOW 2012 is gone? It seems like just yesterday it was New Years Eve. How does time fly so fast? There have been so many things that have happened over the last year or so. Some good and some bad. 

We lost my father a little over a year ago and Kevin lost his father this year in September. 

My daughter moved to away from me for the first time and went to live with her father in California.

We moved from the only home I have known here in Washington, and at the same time the rest of our kids moved out on their own as well.

My little fur ball Angel developed SARDS and lost her eyesight.

But those are all things that have shown me the good things as well!!

My father is no longer sick and in pain.

Kevin's father has finally rejoined his one true love that passed away over 25 years before he did.

My daughter is learning a lot about growing up and I am very proud of her.

I learned (I know it's cliche) that home really is where the heart is. A house is just 4 walls.

I also learned that I am not just a daughter, Mom, girlfriend, I am me and it is OK to focus on what I want and need.

The #1 thing I have learned this year is a big one and it is thanks to all of you! I am a pretty OK person and I  have realized that I can make my dreams come true if I put my mind to it!!

You all are the greatest!!!

OK here are the top 10 recipes that you loved in 2012


  1. Hey Bobbi... HAPPY NEW YEAR! Thanks for this post. It seems a tough year, glad the year is over and looking forward to the next...

    Sorry I have not been around as much, I grew my list of blogs I wanted to follow until it became unmanageable. So, I just could not stomach looking at any. So, fresh from my first new year's resolution is to get back to basics and find only a handful of folks I want to check in on daily (or whenever a fresh post pops up. So I will be back regularly.

    i did "pin" your Pasta with Chicken and Garlic Cream Sauce. This is going to be my year of cooking Italian. That has me dreaming of using my pasta maker today.

  2. Hi Dave and Happy New Year! I know how easy it is to do when you find so many blogs but I had to do the same thing.
    I am soooo jealous of your pasta maker!!
