Hello Country Pulse Readers!

Can you all believe it's 2014!!!  Personally 2013 flew by so quickly for me.  It was a year of challenges, growth, lessons, change, and most of all GREAT TIMES teaching me just how precious life is.  I am sending you all lots of love and well wishes for this new year hoping it's a year full of growth, fun, and of course Simply Delicious food.
As always a HUGE THANK YOU to Doug Smith for providing such an AMAZING publication and to you the readers, without you all there would be none of this!!
Valentines Day will mark exactly one year for me here in NYC and again WHERE DID THE TIME GO?!  
I encourage you all to get into those kitchens with your family and friends and enjoy the art that is cooking.

Enjoy life to the fullest and let 2014 be a year of great moments, reflecting on all the blessings life has given you.

Lots of Love & Happy Cooking!! ❤️

~Andrew Michaelsen~
