    Can’t decide on what to do with your Thanksgiving turkey leftovers? Try my Turkey Pesto Panini. It’s an absolute dream!     We’re only weeks away from one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. I don’t know about you, but I can’t stop thinking about turkey leftovers. Is it just me? I know it’s been a long year of waiting, but Thanksgiving leftovers are simply the best!  It’s been so bad that I actually been daydreaming about it. In my opinion, having leftover turkey ready to eat the day after Thanksgiving, gets my heart pumping! So that is why I couldn’t resist making a JENNIE-O® OVEN READY™ Boneless Turkey Breast. I just couldn’t wait for the big day to come and I was craving Turkey Pesto Panini sandwiches. It’s like having all the delicious flavors wrapped up in one sandwich. My family goes totally insane when I make these sandwiches. But what…

    A Special message of Thanksgiving Just the thought of the holidays arriving soon gets me so excited. Ekk! Can you tell?I can’t wait! I’m in love with this time of the year. It brings a smile to my face just thinking about my family sitting around the table together at Thanksgiving.   Like many, Thanksgiving is truly a time of gathering and giving thanks for all our loved ones and especially the food that we’re about to receive. As you guys might not have known, last Thanksgiving was the last holiday that I got to spend with my mom before she passed away. It was the last big holiday that my family and siblings spent together. Even although my family lived close by to our mother, I, however, did not. So on my end, it took some planning and saving to get my own family there for this special holiday.…

    Say goodbye to summer, say hello to my Sweet Potato Bread with Candied Pecans.   Okay, everyone, I’m taking the plunge. I’m officially saying goodbye to summer and hello to the season of Fall. I know that many of you are thinking, wait.. hold your breaks. The season of Fall hasn’t begun yet. I totally agree it hasn’t, but I couldn’t help myself. I’m craving sweet tasting recipes and that yummy aroma that fills your kitchen with love especially when you’re talking about baking. My children have been back to school for three weeks now and I’ve had the fever to start decorating my home for Fall ever since. -And, when I started to think about pulling all of my decorations out, I changed my mind real quick. I guess you can say, I’m not in the mood just yet for decorating. But I am in the mood for something…
