Oh, YUM! Did you have a delicious Thanksgiving? Mine was scrumptious! And I got my fill of stuffing and gravy. Now it’s time for gingerbread men and candy canes and some hearty cold-weather meals. I must admit I love the smell of a soup or stew simmering away on my cooktop. Here’s what’s on the menu this week…
Today on Decorating Tips And Tricks we are spilling the beans on our very best GIFTS FOR THE HOME DECORATOR! Lots of great ideas and all the links to go with them!!!! How about a trio of fabulous faux succulents or a monogrammed tape measurer or a set of really gorgeous small plates! LOTS of ideas!
Salmon is a delicious and easy meal to make. I like to make it at least once a week. I’m trying this great recipe from The Recipe Critic
I’m using my Thanksgiving Turkey carcass to make a flavorful turkey stock/broth for Fiesta Turkey Soup! I can’t wait to have it cooking in my kitchen! Don’t throw it away!!!!!! Make stock! So much better than the box! See a great tutorial for making stock HERE.

I can’t go too long without a spaghetti and meatball dinner. And I crave Grandma Lo Bianco’s scrumptious and easy to make meatballs! If you make one thing this week it should be these meatballs. But please read the story behind them… you just may be sitting outside of the pearly gates with me and my friend Fran!!!
Pinch Of Yum was one of the first foodie blogs I followed. This is such a gorgeous blog and a must read! Today I’m making my favorite chicken dish.

TREAT OF THE WEEK
Now is the time to start thinking about those Christmas Cookies. For most cookies, you can make the dough ahead and freeze it. My GROWN UP GINGERBREAD COOKIES are no exception. This is one of the first recipes I created when I started blogging. The pictures are dreadful but the recipes are one of the best!
Have a Scrumptious week, friends!
