I have several more recipes to share with you that I created over the Thanksgiving weekend. I was quite excited that everything turned out so fabulous. It makes me realize that yes I can cook!I always doubt whether or not I can cook, even though I know that this is a God given gift and love that he has given me.

Here's a tidbit for ya

If you love to cook, don't be afraid to share your love with others. They enjoy your yummy treats, just as much as you enjoy making them! This is a great way to spread the love during the holidays and make gift baskets for those around you. Not only do you put lots of time and thought into the gift, but homemade says to someone “You are important to me.”

So what have you been making lately? Are you scared to try something new? Get in the kitchen and get to cooking!
