Recipe Recap – Thanksgiving Week 2014

As promised, below are the recipes that I made and/or re-shared the week of Thanksgiving. In my opinion, all of them can made throughout the Fall season leading into Christmas/New Years. If I remember any more I’ll be sure to add them to the list. 🙂

Pizza, Baseball, and Good Neighbors

TGIF everyone!!! I have been meaning to share this with you all day and finally just got everything ready to go. I promise to keep this short, sweet, and simple. Like me. Well, I’m not so short …

Last night was a very good night. I needed to use up some things in fridge, and I had plans to baptize the new ice cream machine with some peachy goodness. The menu ended up rounding out a little something like this:

We had homemade pizza — sauce and dough recipes.


We had homemade peach ice cream and homemade poundcake.


We had a visitor. Our neighbor, Miss Deborah Kaye, stopped by.


AND … the GIANTS WON last night!!! FINALLY!!! I am cautiously optimistic again. Life is good. Here’s hoping for another win tonight … and here’s to the weekend!
