Look at these scrumptious features from last week…

 Mary’s PUMPKIN GRANOLA was the most viewed link last week. I made this yummy granola and my family loves it! Head over to HOME IS WHERE THE BOAT IS for this recipe.

These tasty INDIVIDUAL VEGGIE QUICHE CUPS TO GO are a wonderful breakfast. I make this same recipe and they are so delicious!  A big thanks to Tracey at THE KITCHEN IS MY PLAYGROUND for sharing.

There are just some foods that make me pay attention… and Stove Top Stuffing is one (no judging please!) Lynn at HAPPIER THAN A PIG IN MUD shared these STOVE TOP STUFFING MEATBALL APPETIZERS. What a yummy brilliant idea!

Tigahen at HALF BAKED HARVEST made these heavenly looking SOURDOUGH BREAD BOWLS. These are on my must-make list! Sooooooo good!

MEATLESS SOUTHWEST WONTON ROLL UPS… oh my stars!!! These looks delicious! Kim at LITTLE MOMMY, BIG APPETITE  shares the OLE’ flavor with us!!!

I am a cookie lover… and a coffee lover. Look at these luscious CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE STICKS… perfect for dunking in coffee or tea or milk or hot chocolate. You can get the recipe for these yummy cookies at BUTTER YUM. Thanks, Pat! I think they would make the perfect holiday hostess gift!

 I shared these fun and easy PUFF PASTRY LEAVES last week. I love to use them instead of croutons, and toppings. They can be made both savory and sweet!

This week’s menu feature is Kelly at SEMI HOMEMADE MOM. Doesn’t Pesto Ranch Pasta Bake sound scrumptious?

    Congratulations to your son and his darling fiancee. How exciting for you all!!! They make a beautiful couple.

    Love all your standouts!!! Every one of them look absolutely delicious and I’m dying to try them all!!! I’m making your beef barley soup this week. It just sounded so good. And the idea of adding a beef bone to the pot is pure genius. So much added flavor there!! Hope to hook with your party. Its always fun to participate!!

    Hi Yvonne,
    Wow, your baby is engaged? That’s a great news. Congrats… to both Chris & Abbey.

    My first time joining your meme… I have some simple menus that I served on Swedish Father’s Day yesterday.

    Thank you for hosting. And I see your players are all good cooks.

    BTW…
    I had made your recipe Egg on a crispy prosciutto and that was well appreciated. I will post next week.
    Thank you for your palatable recipes.

    My favorite Thanksgiving tip comes from my mom. She bakes the turkey the day before the holiday, carves it, and puts it in a wonderful herbed marinade. On Thanksgiving day, there is no turkey mess to clean up and the white meat is so moist and flavorful. It really takes a lot of the stress out of the holiday.
    xo,

    Congratulations Yvonne and thank you for hosting this wonderful blog hop!!
    This week I’m sharing a recipe for sugar free Pumpkin Cheesecake. It’s so sweet, creamy and delicious and sweetened with pure Stevia, so there’s nothing artificial in this cake. Perfect dessert for the holidays, so indulge without guilt and enjoy!!
