Celebrating the New Year and Top 12 of 2012


It’s New Year’s Eve and while some of us will be popping bottles of expensive champagne to celebrate, the rest of us will be taking a much more affordable approach.  Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine and, in my opinion, is less dry and more delicious than your usual champagne anyway.  Mix it with a little pureed fruit or, for the lazier of us, peach nectar from a can, and you’ve got yourself what’s called a “bellini”.

Simple, delicious, bubbly.  Just like New Year’s Eve should be.

Making bellinis is super easy.  Just one part fruit juice or nectar to two parts prosecco.


  • 2 oz fruit juice or nectar
  • 4 oz Prosecco (the sommelier at our local grocer recommended La Marca brand)

Pour 2 oz fruit juice into champagne flute.

Add prosecco and let the bubbles mix it for you.

Drink, enjoy, pour another, drink more.

Happy New Year!

  1. i can personally attest to the fact that the “strawberry cupcakes and how to save a broken buttercream” post saved my butt more than once this year. Here’s to helpful posts and helpful friends who keep you from dissolving into tears on your kitchen floor. thanks, you. 🙂

    • I think we’ve all been there, and knowing that I’ve helped one person back from the verge of a mental kitchen breakdown lets me know that I’ve done my job 😉
