Cookie Recipe

So I am working on Christmas Decorating, and on my breaks, I am clearing up my inbox.  (It was insane at one point, I think I have 35 now… HUGE improvement!!!!)

I subscribed to the Cookie a day recipes from Betty Crocker, and here is one that made me want to save it!!

Thanksgiving Recipes!

new-recipes-added-1

Thanksgiving is often a time of eating… and eating!

For those of us that are cooks, we spend a lot of time in the kitchen making food.  One of the sad things I noticed a few years ago, is that the websites for food recipes get lagging.  And then, last year at Thanksgiving, my mom accidently threw away the turkey instructions.  Luckily, I was patient.  I ended up getting Butterball’s instructions after waiting for a half an hour.

Yes, half an hour to load a page that tonight took not even a full second.

So, when I dreamed up this idea of a food blog, I not only wanted to share recipes, as well as my family’s, but I also wanted a place that my ladies could store their most used recipes and not worry if half the United States was trying to use the Kraft site when they wanted to.

I went through my menu for Thanksgiving and I am presenting the recipe’s that I will be coming here to use.

And yes, I added the Butterball’s instructions in case the unthinkable happens.

Again.

Also, I did my first recipe off the top of my head, the Pan Gravy.  If you have any input to help me improve for next time, let me know.

Here is the Recipe’s (At the end I will also put the shopping list for if you do the same menu.  I didn’t add the simple things like Cranberry sauce, corn and so on.) :

Also, I use this app for shopping: OurGroceries.  If you click on the word, it will take you to the site.  You can add things to the site, and it will share it to your phone.  I love it especially since I took the time to put all the items in the same categories as the store I shop at all the time.  It may have taken me a little bit of time at the beginning, but it is quick and easy now.  Also, you can share the list with others, and if they pick it up and mark it off the list, it will come off yours.  Perfect if you are team shopping, or if you add things as you run out, and your significant other, or roomate picks them up later.

I am off to relax, I need to be elsewhere tomorrow morning, but I am planning on shopping as soon as possible tomorrow to avoid the rushes!
