  • Happy Thanksgiving friends up north :) Is it bad that I am counting down the days until our Thanksgiving so I can eat all of the yummy foods? I will for sure be checking back in here at this list. So many great recipes! Thanks so much for including my ice cream in there!

    Thanks Beth! You’re welcome, it was hard to choose just one of your recipes :)


  • I’m always a bit envious when you guys celebrate your Thankskgiving. It seems that it’s a perfect time and all by its own, rather than being lumped in with Christmas like ours is. ;-) Love this listing, Maggie, and so honored to have my Pumpkin Kahlua Maple Latte included! Folks have been enjoying it with Kahlua, with coffee, or both. :-)

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Thanks Shirley – I wonder, does our Thanksgiving give you a little nudge to start planning yours? It always sneaks up on me so a head’s up would be helpful :) xo
