Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!
Despite the radio silence over the last few months, we’ve been busy in the kitchen! Here’s a bit of what we’ve been up to…
We also started some Christmas crafting, which included a pillow tutorial with the wonderful Alexis over at Kreatelier. This was my first time sitting behind a sewing machine and I took home this masterpiece!
And of course, it wouldn’t be a holiday without some decorated sugar cookies! This year, I went with Sugarbelle’s brown sugar recipe and tried my hand at some turkey heads (inspired by the Bearfoot Baker). Ta-da!
Trying to catch up on blog posts can be a bit tricky, so I’m asking for your help. Which of the above recipes would you like me to post first? Leave your vote in the comments and I’ll push it to the top of the list!

These all look delic, Meg!
What recipe did you use for the cookies? I’ve been trying to find a good icing recipe but haven’t found one that I’m totally sold on yet…
I use cookie blogger The Adventures of Sweet Sugarbelle’s recipe, which uses meringue powder in lieu of egg whites. If you head on over to my Cookie Chemistry post, it will show you my scaled down version and bring you to her original recipe via a hyperlink. She also has a ton of icing tutorials. These were my best batch yet!
Those sugar cookies are super adorable!!!
Thanks a bunch! 🙂
Granola bars and apple-pumpkin risotto. I’m special – I get two votes! (Can I convince you that one of them is from Don?!?)
Ha! You ARE special, Colleen! 🙂 Sounds like granola bars are up next, friends!
I’m intrigued by the minimalist bars.
pear goat cheese of course! good to see you both yesterday!!!
