Are you cooking or baking for the holidays?  What are you making? I’ll be taking the sweet potato casserole to my Gran’s house, and I baked a bunch of these cookies and the fudge.

Are you hosting friends or family at your home?  Or, if you’re traveling…where are you going?  We’re visiting family in TN and then heading to the beach!

Happy Christmas Eve!! #choosejoy

    I’m so hungry right now…HA! Thank you so much for all of your fabulous recipes, Jen; as you know, the Sweet Potato Pomegranate Salad was a huge hit at our Christmas Eve brunch earlier today and I’m actually going to have the little bit that was left over this evening. I hope you have a great time with family AND at the beach – woo hoo!

    We’re headed to the beach too! Not until New Year’s Eve though, hanging out with family in Birmingham before then. I know you’re a 30-A gal, if that’s where you’re headed and you’d like some running company (and our time there overlaps) let me know!

        Oops, just saw this! And as you probably figured out, unfortunately no! Though we would’ve been right there, staying at Seaside! Hope your trip was great, was going to try to make it to track in the AM but have an 8AM meeting :( Cruel!!
