When we got up the next morning, Brenda and Chris went to church after popping the seasoned turkey in the oven and starting the gravy. John...

We were able to round up this great little cost effective, and fun bucket of treat bags.  As well as some cute costume accessories too!  Nana is all set for Halloween, all under $18: –      ...

Tonight for my Women’s Study Group, my friend Julie and I took our turn to bring eats for everyone, while we also got “food for the soul.” After a quick catch up call with Julie (she is also an event planner from San Diego – (yes, I know…what are the chances that we would meet and be fast friends?) we decided on a fall theme for a fun yet simple buffet. Here’s what we whipped up to bring to the table: Brenda and Jessi: caramel apples tea...
