Congratulations on making it mostly through the second straight year of March, 2020. We’re off for the winter break and will return in early January. This has been a roller coaster of a year for our community for so many reasons, and we wanted to take a minute to thank all of you readers and guest authors for all the kind words and support. This year we’re closing in on 1.9M views (our most-read year ever). We’ll take a full look back at 2021 in The Scholarly Kitchen upon our return. In the meantime, I thought I’d leave you with a brief Winter playlist of songs for the cold days ahead. I couldn’t resist throwing in a Christmas song at the end for those who celebrate the holiday — I always say that you should put a star at the top of your Christmas tree, and there ain’t no bigger star than Dolly.

Be well, see you on the other side.
