Get out of that same ol’ recipe rut and try one of these delicious and easy recipes this week! This week I highly recommend making the Thanksgiving Gobbler Pizza and the Chunky Shrimp Burgers with Avocado Aioli sauce!

Happy Sunday and happy almost Thanksgiving TKW Family! So are you ready for turkey day? Have your menu planned?  Yeah, me neither! For those of you that are ready, want to come help me? So here’s the thing, even though Thanksgiving is only Mr. Fantabulous and I, I still go all out. Now granted I make things on a much smaller scale but regardless I still make a good bit of food. But I’m at least one up this time of year as I have my turkey already. Which reminds me I need to put it in the fridge to thaw and then brine it for 24 hours. Do you brine your turkey? OMG if not, you really should do it. The flavor is INCREDIBLE!

But that’s about all I have for Thanksgiving. I still haven’t made my cranberry relish. I haven’t made the rolls yet (seriously make THESE!). Heck, I don’t even have the bread for the stuffing or the potatoes!  I did, however, go to Walmart Saturday morning at 8am and OMG the place was a zoo! I mean you would have thought they were giving stuff away! I did get some stuff (like the cream cheese for his cheesecake and mushrooms for the green bean casserole stuffed mushrooms but that’s it. Please tell me I’m not the only one so far behind.

So today I have a TON of work to get done. Yesterday we had friends over which meant all of the TKW work I would get done on Saturday has to get done today leaving me only to worry about this post and the upcoming posts for the week, today. But today I have to try to cram and get everything done in one day. Oh yeah, and get to bed early as I have to head into the office tomorrow which means I’m up at 4am. Ugh… why can’t I be Oprah rich instead of so damn sexy? LOL

Which do you think is better, turkey on Thanksgiving or leftover turkey?

Oh hello Pittsburgh Summer and its 893% humidity. So for those of you that aren’t familiar with Pittsburgh Summers let me give it to you straight – they pretty much happen overnight (i.e., we skip Spring), they are hot but 85-92F is bearable BUT, yes but they are laden with rain and or severe humidity.  In a nut shell, it’s pretty terrible HOWEVER that’s pretty much the only negative thing about this city.  I’m a ‘burgh girl and love it.  I love the food, the people, the hometown pride. Now if I could just take Scottsdale, Arizona’s weather and bring it here I’d be set.

When the great folks from Outshine reached out to me to create something delicious and innovative featuring their Outshine Strawberry Yogurt bars I was pumped.  Have you tried them yet?  Okay seriously you need to stop reading this, head to Walmart and pick up a box of them.  While you’re there grab another box of their other flavors! Did you know that for more than 20 years, they’ve been making delicious fruit bars out of ingredients like sweet strawberries, ripe mangoes and juicy peaches? I know, right!  That’s awesome!  Today, America’s favorite fruit bar also offers an array of refreshing products like Fruit & Veggie, Coconut Waters™ and Simply Yogurt Bars.

Okay so let’s dish and by dish I mean the candy dish.  What’s in yours?  I grew up in a household that at least one candy dish had MARS M&M’s® in it.  This is something we fought over all the time. So now fast forward some X number of years to present day (yeah… it’s a lot of years; no like A LOT.  Like crypt-keeper a lot… LOL well okay not really).  What’s in my candy dish? MARS M&M’s® The amazing folks at MARS M&M’s® reached out again to discuss their awesome Flavor Campaign. In this campaign they have 3 flavors that you get to help select!  Well part of what they challenged me to do was show how any one of these amazing flavors M&M’s® Chili Nut, M&M’s® Honey Nut or M&M’s® Coffee Nut would rock your socks off either in a recipe or a tutorial. I mean how could I not do both?! EVERYONE loves M&M’s® so why not make some and share it with those I love?! So that’s exactly what I did in my Sweet & Sassy M&M’s® Chili Nut Chocolate Blueberry Bark!  Not only are you getting seriously one of the BEST bark recipes I think I’ve made but also you are able to create your own Sweet & Sassy gift jars with downloadable printable gift tags to decorate with!  I mean we all have those Sweet & Sassy moments!

Now what’s awesome is that many Walmarts are having in store demos featuring these 3 proposed flavors.
Make sure you cast your vote for your favorite flavor!
