A new year, and news for 2010!

This is how I entered the new year, with a smile and sound asleep in my bed. 2009 was an ok year and I have hopes that 2010 will be a better one. And I know it will be, not "just because", but because I decided that I will make it better!
I read a phrase the other day that I loved and which woke me up for many things: "Everything is a once-in-a-lifetime experience", and is it not? (the phrase came from the book "Life is good: simple words from Jake and Rocket")
Every minute is different than the next, what happens now won't happen the same a few seconds from now. So from now on I will try my best to make every minute count (more so than before).
I have been "rehearsing" a comeback to studying for a while and decided that now was the time, so I will be starting the new year with a new backpack and college classes to keep me young, yep blogfriends, I am back to school.
With my love for food, science, healthy eating, and all colorful fruits and veggies alike I decided to try a future in one my favorites subjects: nutrition!
I will take some basic nutrition and food science classes this semester, just so I can get myself back in the college rhythm (after 6 years out of school it seemed to be a good idea to take my time), and then apply for a masters later on.
I am totally psyched and excited to start my classes in a couple of weeks, so wish me luck and come visit me because I do plan to post more this year too, especially with the new cookbooks I have on hand!
I hope your 2010 is beginning as happy as mine is and that we will have lots of exciting news to share.
My wishes are for a more than Happy New Year to all my friends and family!
Love you all,

Ps: I just wanted to keep a little retrospect of 2009 here with two things I discovered and loved in my kitchen in the year that just ended, so here goes:
- My favorite find: almond butter!
- And my favorite recipe of the year: Roasted Squash Salad with Warm Cider Vinaigrette (the dressing of this salad is out-of-this-world good!)
That's it, 2009 is over and so am I with it. 2010 here I go!!
