Starbucks Let's Merry!

Hello Everyone! 

To me there is nothing better than walking into Starbucks and seeing the holiday decorations while Christmas music is playing. So I thought I would spread the cheer and let you know that Starbucks has a great BOGO sale going on until Sunday. Starbucks Let's Merry! From 2-5pm each day there are Buy One Get One holiday drinks!

Thanksgiving "Must Have" & "Must Try"

I can't explain how excited I am for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season. Not only is there amazing food during the holidays, but everyone is in the happiest mood too. You get to see family and friends as everyone is brought together by a hearty meal. I am looking forward to this holiday season more than ever because I have not seen my family in… too long. I decided I would compile a Must Have list for Thanksgiving: list of dishes I love and look forward to making and having each year. I also put together a Must Try list of recipes I have come across that I am hoping to try making this year.

Must Have:

- Classic Green Bean Casserole
- My Grandma’s Homemade Cranberry Sauce
- Sweet Potato Bake with Marshmallow, brown sugar and pecans
- Pumpkin Pie
- Apple Crisp
- My Mom’s 7-layer Salad
- Candied Bacon
- Apple Snicker Salad
- Homemade Stuffing

Must Try:

- Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip
- Squash Soup
- Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting
- Homemade Jalapeno Poppers with Croissants
- Sliced Baked Apples
- Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella
- Butternut Squash Soup

I’ll let you all know what I end up making and what turns out the best!
