Yahoo! It’s Friday! Oh, and it’s also December… when did that happen?! After settling back in Brooklyn I swiftly made my way to the grocery, eager to get back in the kitchen. That’s when I spotted a basket full of kumquats, the little citrus gems that always lure me in. I mean, come on, they’re mini and that’s just cute. So today I welcome December with a lovely little kumquat screwdriver. Yes, I said screwdriver… I think this month is going to require a few of these puppies.

Cheers! To the last month of the year, to getting back in the kitchen and of course, to getting things done!
