One of my favorite things about writing is being able to extend an idea onto paper, and then flesh it out, filling it with information that helps, teaches, and shows others how easy some things are to do with a little help. Above and beyond many of the posts I have written this last year, [...]

Welcoming Wednesday….Turkey To-Do’s, How to bake Stuffing Bread, and The Welcoming House’s Sausage Cranberry Stuffing…
