Blog Love ~ a few favorite posts from the past week

Since I've spent a lot of time this week recovering from our busy weekend and trying to get rid of a cold, I haven't had a lot of time to read a lot of blogs.  I do, however, have a few posts that I managed to take a quick peek at and I want to share those with you today. 

In helping us all prepare for the holiday season, Lisa shares some of her family's favorite holiday recipes from her 1996 Thanksgiving Dinner Menu.  I've never made homemade biscuits before, but her recipe for Sweet Potato Biscuits has me considering the attempt at biscuit making for the holidays.

Debbi, has several recipes posted this past week that I really want to try, but her recipe for Root Beer Baked Beans is at the top of my list!  I really look forward to making this recipe, since like Debbi, I've resorted to using the crock pot for my baked beans.  It's been a long time since I actually baked them in the oven.  Since I am still without a Crock Pot, it's the perfect time to mix up a batch of these and pop them in the oven! 

This week, Christy posted about a holiday tradition that she learned from a friend.  As I read her post, tears actually came to my eyes!  I could imagine all of the fun moments shared at the table every year as family members participated in this wonderful tradition.  I don't want to give too much of the idea away, I really want you to head over to Glitter and Gumdrops and read the actual post...reading about it while looking at the many detailed photos will make you want to start a new family tradition in your home! 

Don't forget to enter my giveaways!  You can find the links at the top of the page for my Vitalicious VitaTops Super Sampler Giveaway and my Butch's Smack Your Lips BBQ Giveaway!  Both of these end on 11/15.
