Favorite Things Thursday

Ok. I know..I have recieved your emails.

I slacked on Favorite Things Thursday last week.

Sorry my lovelies, I was traveling.

And this week, I am prepping for our Halloween party.

So guess what? I’m a slacker today too. Next week, I’ll be back….pinky promise.

But you want to know what my Favorite Things are this week????

It’s YOU!

You all are my favorite things.

Without all of you who come here to my little site to read my rantings and recipes, I wouldn’t have the motivation to continue!!

So thank you to all of you, my favorite things!

Too much?


I thought I would leave you with a scrumptious little recipe of mine that was just featured by the Southern Living Blog.

It’s an oldie but a goodie. (excuse the 2009 photo)
