Hello hello and happy weekend to you!

I’m hoping (fingers crossed!) it’s a healthy one for our crew and after pre-Thanksgiving prep then Christmas decorating, we’re looking forward to a low key couple of days before holiday mania starts. What are your plans for the weekend? Are you doing any holiday baking? Tell me what you’re making!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!
