And just like that - we're back....
It's funny how time miraculously moves at light-speed and in the blink of an eye the holiday season is greeting us with a warm embrace. Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday (next to my birthday), is typically a day where I rejoice in the warmth of my kitchen which has been transformed into an oasis of autumn aromas. This year, as we approach this glorious occasion I have feelings of anxiety and fear.
For the first ever, Mark and I are the brave souls who volunteered to host the "annual" feast at our home. As we finalize logistics for an intimate, but enjoyable evening with my immediate family, I have searched far and wide for dishes that are trudge the line of innovation, but still appeal to the pickiest of eaters (*cough* my mother).
As you curate your own menus for the BIG day, my pinterest board for "Holiday Dishes" may get your gears turning and mouths salivating. If you're looking for some easy items to add a little flare to your table, look no further as I have hand-picked these special (and might I add quite EASY to make) side-dishes just for you.
