Thanksgiving 2018

Thanksgiving 2018

Thanksgiving is almost here! This is one of my very favorite holidays. Gathering around the table with close friends and family to eat yummy food and reflect on our blessings.  This year is especially special because my husband and I will be hosting our first Thanksgiving in our new home. As you may know by now, I am obsessed with cooking and entertaining ... so, I am in overdrive with excitement for making this years Thanksgiving one for the books! Growing up my mother has always hosted the most delicious Thanksgiving meals. She is the world's best cook! I used to laugh as she would run through every store in town to find the freshest, all-natural ingredients.  I truly believe this is what makes each of her dishes shine. Fast forward in time and I am now finding myself doing the same thing! As some would say: "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree." In case your wondering by now, yes... I snagged a few recipes from her and have linked them here. Cheers!!
