Hello hello!

Did you have a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday? We had a great day with family, along with tons of amazing food! I’ll be sharing lots of pictures on Monday, so be sure to stop back to take a peek! I’d love to hear about the amazing things you ate… also, did you go black Friday shopping? We hung out at home and got our Christmas tree up and the lights outside… hoping to finish decorating today!

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!

What I Bookmarked This Week

Recipes and posts from other blogs that I thought looked especially delicious and that I thought you would like, too:

I made this cranberry cider punch as a last-minute decision for Thanksgiving and it was a massive, massive hit. I made a triple batch and ended up replenishing the pitcher; everyone loved it. It’s non-alcoholic, but some folks added their liquor of choice to their glass… perfect for any holiday parties you have coming up, including Christmas and New Year’s!

This is GORGEOUS! >> Salted Caramel Gingerbread Cake with Orange Buttercream

Peppermint Puppy Chow is calling my name!

Christmas morning breakfast? >> Gingerbread French Toast with Cinnamon Honey Sauce

How beautiful is this gingerbread swirl fudge?!

Have a delicious weekend!
