Happy New Year!
It's 2019!  
The holidays are finally over. In a daze, you walk through the house, past the crushed party favors, champagne glasses, and that hard-as-a-rock fruitcake that somebody left. You welcome a return to normalcy; it's time to eat normal food again, and avoid retail stores for a while!

As fun as the holidays are, the peace and quiet afterwards is also pretty nice. You have some time to ponder over your new year's resolutions: Get more exercise. Manage your debt more responsibly. Cook at home more often.

We are looking forward to another great year full of fun experiences, new friends, and lots of cooking! We love when you all share photos of your cooking triumphs and your creative recipes. Keep 'em coming!

Penne Pasta with Ham & Cheese
Penne Pasta with Ham & Cheese  
Could you build a fort out of all the containers of leftovers in your fridge? Do not fret! We have a recipe here that features that leftover holiday ham, and it's warm and delicious--and the perfect comfort food for this cold season!   
* 1 lb uncooked penne pasta
* 1 tbsp butter
* 1 tbsp olive oil
* 1 small onion, chopped
* 2 cups cooked ham, chopped
* 1 cup chicken broth
* 1 cup heavy cream
* 1 tsp ChickenShit
* 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
* 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
* 3/4 cup frozen peas

1. Cook the pasta al dente according to package instructions.
2. In a large pot, melt the butter with the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and saute for about 5 minutes until the onion softens.
3. Add the ham to the pot and cook for about 8 minutes until the ham starts to brown slightly.
4. Stir in the chicken broth and heavy cream, then add the ChickenShit. Add the cheeses and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring, until the cheese melts.
5. Add the pasta, peas, stir and cook for a couple more minutes.

Tip: add a small can of mushrooms (drain it first) or cooked carrots for some extra oomph! 
Thanks to all of you for helping to make 2018 such a wonderful year. We are certainly looking forward to all the great things that 2019 has in store for us, and we hope you'll be there with us through it all. 
Happy New Year!
