We had a wonderful Thanksgiving… Not just good food, but amazing friends too! There is a new baby in our periferal world, and the kids just LOVE  him!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday as well!




 From a post a few years ago, this is my go to cranberry sauce:

Quite tart, but super tasty, this is the cranberry sauce I made for tonight’s feast.

Combine in a pot and simmer over medium heat until

cranberries are soft (about 10-12 minutes).

24 oz fresh cranberries washed and picked over

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup brandy

1/4 cup marmalade

1/4 teaspoon orange extract

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

November Colors

A real November day.

I wish I could do justice to all the golden orange leaves!

 I made butter cakes for the kids school’s annual craft fair.

 With a lemon sugar glaze.

 Its been cold enough that our uncarved pumpkins are still sitting pretty.

Happy Autumn EVERYONE!!!
