And a personal note of thanks

I received the most amazing book in the mail last week.  It was full of photos of friends, smiles, and memories.  It’s been a pleasure to bake alongside all of you for the past three and a half years.  It’s been my honor to be able to help out on the site for the last one and a half.  I can’t wait for our journey to continue with our next book.  Have a wonderful, sweet new year!

Small change for the week…

Since this week was a rewind meant to give you a chance to bake for Thanksgiving, we thought we’d give you the chance to post after Thanksgiving.  The LYL post will be up on Thursday for a Fridays with Dorie this week.

We’ll return to our regularly scheduled schedule next Tuesday.

Have a very happy, food-filled, and fun-filled Thanksgiving!

They’re here! Recipes for November!

We are getting really close to the end of the book.  In fact, there are only 13 recipes left.  I know!  To ensure that we get to all of them, we are doubling up on recipes this month.  We’ve left Thanksgiving week as a rewind because it was so popular last year.  If you can bake both of the recipes for a given week, that’s great!  If you can only handle one, we totally understand.

Without further ado… the recipes!
