Week in Review

Can you believe it is only four days until Christmas? I have already planned my menu which is the same from year to year so, there is really nothing to plan. How about you, do you have a traditional menu?

Smoked Turkey takes front and center on our table along with stuffing, Broccoli Nut Casserole, Sweet Potato Souffle, mashed potatoes, creamed onions and Pumpkin Pies. We do have a Christmas birthday boy so birthday cake (Lazy Woman’s Cake) is also on the menu.

I am an early shopper and like to begin my shopping in the spring. I know it is early but this allows me to take advantage of sales throughout the year. Wrapping, though, is another subject. Often, I am up most of Christmas Eve wrapping – coffee works wonders!

Our second oldest son and daughter-in-law arrive for the festivities this afternoon and my mother and sister will arrive Christmas Eve. Are you staying home or travelling for the holidays?

Week in Review – November 23

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week?

I don’t know about you, but I am already getting prepared – my menu is ready (not that it changes that much from year to year) and groceries are bought.

I really enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday, a time set aside to remember all our blessings and what we have to be thankful for – not to mention the time spent together as a family. So, with the season in mind, this Week in Review will give seasonal links around the blogosphere.

But first, [Continue Reading]

So, if you are or if you are just wondering about my kitchen gadgets, here is another one that I am really enjoying.[Continue Reading]

Week In Review – October 26


le creuset spoon spatulas titled

This is the first in a weekly series entitled “Week in Review” which will be posted each Saturday. I want to share with you links to other food blogs that I found throughout the week containing recipes or ideas that I have found interesting and a kitchen gadget that I use and enjoy.

Sometimes I might think a kitchen utensil or gadget looks like it would be useful but is it really? Is it worth the money spent? For me, it helps to know someone that actually uses it and likes it! I thought some of you might be the same so, along with my review I am also linking to the exact gadget or utensil that I purchased from my affiliate partner and explaining why I like it.

For the first review, I present my Le Creuset Revolution Silicon Spoon Spatulas. Yes, that’s right, it is plural! I thought they were so wonderful that I bought 2 of them!
