Happy Thanksgiving all! Thanksgiving has become my favorite holiday over the last couple years. It is a holiday where food and family are the focus and that is the way it should be. It’s not about gifts or decorations or crazy traditions. Its about being thankful for all the wonderful things in life and enjoying life with family.

I couldn’t feel more blessed or thankful this Thanksgiving. I am excited for the coming year and happy to be where I am today.

We are heading to my grandma’s house for Thanksgiving. This year we are all bringing a dish or two to lighten the load on grams. I’m bringing a cranberry tart, an asparagus & parmesan tart and if I get time this morning pecan pie cookies.

I started reading a book recently called Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist. It is a wonderful book focused on a love letter to life around the table with recipes. In the book she and her friends have a cooking club where they get together once per month at each others’ house and have dinner. Everyone brings a dish and share a meal around the table sharing recipes and life stories. I plan to start one of these clubs very soon…

I hope you all have a wonderful day with friends, family and amazing food. Enjoy!
