Holiday Hosting Tips

Hi, my name is Nichole and I have a holiday hosting problem. It’s true, ever since I got into cooking and baking I’ve started hosting holidays until I managed to take over all of them. I leave the summer months to my mom because she has a pool, but Thanksgiving, […]

2017 Thanksgiving Menu

It’s that time of year again! You know, the time where I invite 20+ family members over for the holiday, take off the day before to prep all of the food and then barely remember the holiday. ūüėŹ Kidding… Kind of. I usually remember most of it. This holiday is […]

Christmas Menu 2016

Christmas is less than three weeks away! Are you ready? Surprisingly, I’ve found myself pretty ready for this Christmas (except for a lack of recipes to share with you) and that’s probably because I managed to get my menu planned really early and my family really isn’t celebrating with gifts […]

Turkey Dumpling Soup

I had a grand plan to share two new recipes with you early last week in addition to a new one after Thanksgiving to use up all of those leftovers and none of it ended up happening. I’m not sure what is going on with my head, but I’ve had […]

The Thanksgiving Timeline

I had such high hopes of getting this posted and shared with you on Thanksgiving day, but a migraine the night before and family arriving earlier than anticipated set me back further than I intended. While this is much too late for any Thanksgiving celebration this year, you could use […]
