Hello hello!

Happy Saturday to you! I hope that you’re staying warm in your neck of the woods, and if you’re in the south you stay safe with the storm that’s passing through. After power outages, Thanksgiving, and a round of colds here, I’m gearing up for an all-day kitchen work day today for some new things I hope to bring your way in the new year. Fingers crossed for success!

What are you doing this weekend? Do you have any holiday parties? Shopping? Looking at lights? I hope it’s something wonderful!

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!
