a new year feast among friends

My lovely cheesemonger friend Kara loves to start the new year with a dinner party.  Here are some highlights from the night.  No recipes here, for I can't take credit for any of this deliciousness!

braised beef and Bayley Hazen Blue pie... tart and savory, enclosed in a buttery crust!

fresh ricotta sno-cone, anyone?

clementine in a glass-topped pedestal: adorbs

fried sage and fresh ricotta crostini

action photo...(why must I be such a dork?)

flourless chocolate-orange-bourbon cake- so boozy and decadent!

flannels and hoodies and sweaters, oh my!
