Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Wednesday Whatsits.

And happy Thanksgiving week!


You guys.  There are like a million things coming to the blog soon, including SIX different giveaways!  I’m talking stand mixers and money and all kinds of cool stuff.  I’m so excited!!!!!  This December is going to kick butt.

Starting December 1st is my Christmas cookies series

12 Days of Christmas Cookies

All leading up to the big reveal of my annual Christmas Cookie Recipe Swap on December 13th

XMAS Cookie Recipe Swap

and that’s just to get things started.


I made you all some seriously good food this week, and Jenn rocked it out.


I usually only feed 4 adults and 2 (picky) kids on Thanksgiving.  Last year I skipped the whole bird and made a Bacon Roasted Turkey Breast with Sage Butter instead.  It was fabulous!

I’m spending the day baking pies!  Get my step-dad’s family recipe for the Perfect Pie Crust and grab a free pie printable while you’re there!

I have a love affair with cheesecake.  It’s been my birthday cake more often than not.  It’s been a while since I’ve had any, so I made some Dark Chocolate & Hazelnut Cheesecake Bars.  They’re a lightened version of the decadence I crave, but you’d never know the difference.

DIY contributor Jenn is showing you how to make a Land of Nod Inspired Wall Art.  This would make a fabulous custom Christmas present, and with Jenn’s step-by-step tutorial anyone can make it.


Since this Saturday is the most important football game of the season, I’m going full out!

    I laugh at all of the Michigan cracks. The Michigan Ohio rivalry is like being back in Oklahoma and going between Texas or Nebraska. My husbands family is die hard Michigan fans but my family all went to State. I am neutral because I didn’t grow up here or go to either and its like they try to make me choose. So funny!

    Have a great turkey day…gobble gobble
