I think Thanksgiving is a food blogger’s tax season.

It’s one of the only holidays that nearly all Americans are guaranteed to get into the kitchen and looking for your recipes! You are busy planning a dinner party for cyberspace and it all has to be done week’s before Thanksgiving! It turns out that this time of year often is “busy season” for my job. I got back from 2 weeks of work travel, just in time to catch up before taking a real break for Thanksgiving.

Meanwhile, I have been working to create new side dishes to cook, shoot, and share with all of you. After working two extra long days, it appears, I am just going to be behind. Hopefully all my new recipes make it out this year, but if not, I guess I am just super ahead for next year!
