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!
What is the one food that has to be on your Thanksgiving table? Who makes it? Was there also one on the table that had you shaking your head? (I’m looking at you Snickers Salad!)
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!
Like the end to the group, the brownies are bittersweet.
I’ve never had this kind of pie before! What do I need to know?
Sounds just like a cereal I know!
Which is better? Near Breton or Far Breton?
So, what did you think? How did yours turn out?
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!
