Can you believe it…2015 is almost over!! I mentioned in my New Year’s Eve Party Foods post the other day, that 2015 will go down as the worst year ever, and I am more than happy to see it go! The bright side to this year has been you, my wonderful friends that have come back time and time again and keep Cooking with Curls going…Thank You so much!!

This Chicken au Champagne is a winner!! Not only is it delicious, but this post has been viewed over 165,000 times in 2015…and pinned over 225,000 times!! 🙂

Well I made it through the year. My mom battled breast cancer, I survived a nasty divorce, packed up my house with 3 month’s notice, moved to Arizona in August, survived the 115+ degree temperatures even after the A/C went out, my little buddy Arlo almost died from undiagnosed Diabetes and is now blind, and my dad was rushed to the hospital two weeks ago with congestive heart failure. When it rains, it pours!

My mom is cancer free, my dad will be back at work Monday, and I am pretty much allergy free here in AZ {damn ragweed}….so things could have been much worse…but I’m still glad it’s almost over! 😉

Here’s to a drama free and healthy 2016…Cheers!!
