We were fortunate to spend this weekend with a bunch of friends in NY, especially after Friday’s tragedy. It’s nice to have a chance to see people before the craze of Christmas sets in.
On Saturday, we attended a baby naming / christening, which was followed by a fun party for family and friends. The hosts told us they wanted to make punch, which seemed weird to me, since there would be older . . . → Read More: Old Favorites
This salad normally wouldn’t be worth a post, but I’m posting it for two reasons.

Today is my favorite holiday all year – not surprising that I look forward to a holiday focused on food, huh? I LOVE the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, but before you dive head first into a plate of brown-ish, carb-y, gravy-soaked dinner, consider a colorful “pre-game” salad. This one comes together in a jiffy after the beets are roasted (which you could do a day or so ahead of time) and is jam-packed . . . → Read More: Pre-Thanksgiving Light Lunch: Peach and Roasted Beet Salad
