Lots of fun for New Year's Eve

I'm not big on New Year's Eve parties. I really enjoy being with close friends at one of our houses and by 10:30 I'm ready for bed!!! But that doesn't mean I can't have a great time and enjoy the night. This New Year's Eve I am making my famous duck recipe. It cooks overnight in the oven at 225 and then the next day we hang it to let all the fat drip out of it and then before it's served I brown in a hot oven for a few minutes. There is NO fat left in the duck when it is served. The sauce is all Cherries- frozen cherries processed in food processor with cherry juice and some Cherry liquor, it simmers for several hours and tastes like dessert!!! It's a great contrast with the duck. I will be making fresh spring rolls too. I got the recipe from Cindy, who does my nails and is from Viet Nam. I had her fresh rolls at a party and they were the best I've tasted. I will post the recipe on my website if they come out great. I hope everyone has a great New Year's! If anyone wants my recipe for the duck please contact me at
