With the end of the year coming ever closer, now is the time I usually start to anticipate the happy time of Thanksgiving and Christmas. I look forward to the turkey and stuffing and all the fixins’ like making chitterlings (chitlins), greens, sweet potatoes, dessert and more!

It’s the time of year when I like to explore new recipes to try, impress friends and family with my “new-found” cooking skills and just let all the unimportant things slip through my fingers. It’s a time to reflect on the past year, your triumphs, your disasters and everything else in between.

So, I’d like to share some great recipes with you in the spirit of sharing and love of food, family and a better New Year. Some are mine, most are not, but I hope you love them all as much as I do and will either share or try some of them yourself!
