Lady’s New Site

Happy new year! Did you make any new year’s resolutions? I never have much luck sticking with mine, so I make year-end resolutions in December instead. With a tight deadline of New Year’s Eve, I find it easier to focus on getting things done. This time around my resolution was to build a new website dedicated to my consulting and freelance work. Here’s the finished product: http://juliefalconer.com.

Lady’s New Years Eve in San Francisco

This trip is no exception, and I find myself discovering all kinds of new restaurants and sightseeing attractions in San Francisco.

But this is no ordinary fruitcake; it’s my Glaswegian grandmother’s fruitcake, and my family makes it every Christmas. And that’s not the only British recipe we make this time of year. Here are a few of the best ones…
