HAPPY THANKSGIVING and a blogging break!


I want to wish each of you a HAPPY THANKSGIVING tomorrow!

Above all of the delicious food we will stuff ourselves with, I hope you will all enjoy your time with family and friends!

I'm so excited to be hosting our family's Thanksgiving this year! Preparations have been going on for days!

Because I'll be busy mashing potatoes, gabbing with my sisters, eating leftover turkey on homemade rolls, and shopping on Black Friday, I'm taking a little blogging break!

I've got several recipes that I want to share...and a few book reviews as well. I'll be back when I'm a few pounds heavier and several dollars lighter... ;-)

So... to give you something to read in my absence - here's a list of
