Next Week’s Scrumptious Pumpkin Menu As Decided By You…

It wasn’t even close.  The baked salmon and shepherd’s pie are the clear winners.  So look for those recipes next week… Thank you for choosing the shepherd’s pie.  I love this dish and was hoping to have it for dinner this weekend. I’ll definitely post the other recipes at a later date. …

What’s Up Next? The Choice Is Yours…

This has been a super-busy, hectic week for me, but I wanted to take a minute to send out a huge thank you for all of your thoughtful questions, insights, and comments!    I’ve loved hearing from each of you and hope to set aside the time to respond to your individual questions…
