I adore homemade cranberry sauce and could not imagine my Thanksgiving meal without it! I understand how it gets a bad rap from the jellied canned version. It takes such a few minutes to make a delicious version from fresh cranberries! This is a favorite of mine http://whatmattersmostnow.typepad.com/my-blog/2014/11/5-thanksgiving-favorites-2014-edition.html Happy Holidays!

Hi Anastasia, Greek olives are honestly my favorite! They are often referred to as Kalamata olives in our area. I checked out your recipe and can't wait to try it as it looks delicious and something my olive-loving family would enjoy. Thank you so much for sharing the link and recipe!
Hi Marla, Thanks for your sweet feedback. I love reading posts such as yours that remind me even more how fleeting "those few short years" are passing! Yikes. I spent this summer away from the blog, just focusing on the fleeting day to day with the kids (and balancing the "day job" of course). I really appreciate readers like you.
Thanks for your feedback and I am so happy that you enjoyed the camping meal ideas.
I love getting comments like yours Jan! Thanks for posting your feedback!
So glad to hear it's your new favorite recipe Kathy! Thanks for your feedback!
