Happy Friday! What do you say we get together and have a party? I’ll bring some incredible features from the last party along with a place to link up your newest things. You bring the awesomesauce projects that you always share with us on Fridays. Sound like a deal? ;)

As I was getting ready for this link party, I realized that next week at this time, I’ll be out doing my annual Black Friday shopping? Do you go out? If you do, I have something you NEED before you hit the stores {click on the pic to check it out}.

Everything you need for a successful Black Friday shopping trip! This Black Friday survival kit is perfect before hitting the stores.

Easy Glitter Christmas Ornaments

We are really into Christmas and literally change the decorations in pretty much every part of our home for Christmas.  We have about five Christmas trees of different sizes around the house.  We even take down artwork and put up Christmas decorations instead.  I’d probably change out pieces of furniture too if Mathlete wouldn’t give me a hard time about it!  This year, I decided to add a little Christmas sparkle to our paper mache tree and made some super easy glitter Christmas ornaments to hang on it.

Cranberry Walnut Quinoa Stuffing

I am so excited to be participating in a great blog hop today where we are sharing ideas for Thanksgiving dishes. I have been experimenting with different stuffing recipes this year and am totally in love with this cranberry walnut quinoa stuffing.

A great gluten free replacement for regular stuffing! I love the idea of making a cranberry walnut quinoa stuffing for Thanskgiving!

Turkey Tacos with Cranberry Salsa

Thanksgiving always leaves a bunch of leftovers in our house. I know most people try to give them away so they don’t have to worry about the food going to waste or having to eat the same thing over and over again. I am just the opposite. I love leftovers and always look for a way to use them in different ways so no one says “turkey, again!” Being major lovers of Tex-Mex and Mexican food {my 4 year old eats orders a bowl of guacamole for himself at dinner}, I knew I wanted to put a little spice into my leftovers dish this year and make turkey tacos with cranberry salsa.

So, we’ve started adding getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas to our busy routine. It isn’t like I had a whole lot of spare time anyways so now we have even less time to get everything done. Of course, with the expenses of the holidays, I am working harder than ever to keep our eating out under control. It is times like these that recipes like this one for mushroom and red wine beef become so important!

Thanksgiving Quinoa Stuffing with Pancetta

We are ticking away the days until Thanksgiving at a fast pace. It is almost scary to think it will be here in just a few weeks. Now is the time when most of us are thinking about our menus, selecting recipes and finalizing shopping lists. As you work on yours, I have a great recipe that you should consider making a spot for on your table: quinoa stuffing with pancetta.
The dressing {or stuffing depending on where you are from} is my favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal. I like to try all different versions and you can sometimes find two or three on our table for the holiday. This quinoa version is perfect for anyone who wants or needs to be gluten free.

This is a great recipe with all the flavors of traditional Thanksgiving stuffing but made gluten free by using quinoa instead. Quinoa Stuffing with pancetta is an awesome gluten free option.

Bacon Macaroni and Cheese Bites

Every year, I host a Christmas party where we invite all of our family and friends to come and celebrate with us over drinks and food. I start planning the menu about 2 months in advance and am always looking for new things to add to it. I had been toying with the idea to recreate a favorite appetizer from a local Italian restaurant but that sort of morphed into this bacon macaroni and cheese bites the more I played around with it.

Beef Tips with Béarnaise Sauce

SoFab Disclosure

There are times when Mathlete and I plan to go out to a nice dinner alone and never end up making it because of schedules or babysitter problems or life in general getting in the way. It is those times that I like to have a few “fancy” dishes that look like they came from a fine restaurant but are really easy to to make at home. I recently make beef tips with béarnaise sauce, made with white wine vinegar, and roasted asparagus for just one of those nights.
