Post Thanksgiving Slump

It’s that time of year. You know what I’m talking about. The Post Thanksgiving Slump. Too much turkey. Too much rich food. Too much house cleaning. Black Friday. Cyber Monday. It’s like the week leading up to Thanksgiving is spent preparing for family and friends and food comas, and the week after is spent jumping right into the next holiday by shopping all these ‘special days of discount’ WHILE going through your turkey coma.

Buttery Homemade Dinner Rolls

So, this recipe came out of the November 2010 issue of Food Network Magazine and I did this recipe and loved it SO MUCH that I still have the magazine to this day. This recipe is credit to Alex Guarnaschelli who was the host of Alex’s Day Off TV show and they were called ‘Parker House Rolls’. I guarantee you that if you have a big family get together, you’ll want to make this recipe twice.

Tough Love

Sometimes we need outlets, non judgemental ones, and I know for certain my computer isn’t going to say something witty or rhetorical or what not when I sit down and start typing, so it’s easier to let things just flow from my fingertips. I wanted to talk a little about my experiences of being a parent.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

If you saved your pumpkin seeds from our delicious roasted pumpkins we did, we get to eat them to. Waste not, want not, right? So we’re going to toast these delicious little seeds for a snack the whole family can enjoy.

Oh My! Sweet Potato Pie!

For those of you who absolutely loathe sweet potatoes, I beg you to give this a try. I have never, at any point in my life, appreciated sweet potatoes. I don’t even remember why I baked a pie for the first time, years ago, using these orange fleshed tubers. But I can tell you that I don’t regret it and I make it every year, without fail because my mother might never forgive me if I didn’t.
