It’s Thanksgiving and I can’t wait for a few days of rest from all the harvest activity!
My good friend, Michelle Mazzara, gave me her new book, Dolce Vita USA Cook Book, and I wanted to share a side dish that I believe you will totally love having on your Thanksgiving table this year.
Thank you Michelle for the gift!!!

For those incredible bloggers out there, I commend you on your writing abilities. To be able to write something day in and day out is a gift. Today I am speechless…I actually have nothing to talk about. So when I am in this state I tend to think of all the things I am thankful for.
I am very thankful for you…my family, my friends, and my colleagues. Without you, where would I be? Your love and inspiration lift my spirits and set my feet moving forward. There are days when you just need to sit and reflect on what is really important…
When I think of you it makes me smile…thanks
