We had a fabulous Thanksgiving and now we are working hard to get ready for Christmas. I love to make special dishes for the season and decorate for the festivities. This week I will be attending a ladies luncheon where I will be taking one of my favortie salads. I am trying to get my meal plans made ahead of time for the month so I can enjoy the parties and my family who is here with us.

One of my favorite breakfast is a plain yogurt with a topping of granola or fresh fruit.If I can combine the granola and fruit all the better. My Spicy Cranberry Granola is one of my favorite recipes, and can be used on yogurt, ice cream or just a bowl of fruit, I have even sprinkled some on a salad and it was fantastic! In addition to being a great granola mix, it makes a great gift for a friend or family member. My friends and family just love getting a lovely jar of this granola for a hostess, birthday or christmas gift.

One of the things that my husband and I have enjoyed since we were very young is Apple Butter. We love Apple Butter as a condiment on meat and the very best is Apple Butter and Biscuits. Since we love Apple Butter so much, why not put it in a cake and we did. It is frosted with a maple flavored butter cream frosting that is a perfect topping for this awesome cake. This cake is so moist is almost cuts like a pie and is just delicious and a recipe that we will make over and over. We love this cake and I am so happy to share it with all of you today!

Thanksgiving was great here at the cottage and I sure hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Of course we have some left overs that we will be using on the meal plan this week. We are busy already starting to decorate for Christmas, my favorite time of the year. We always wait until Thanksgiving is over before we start on Christmas. This week we will be planning some easy recipes that don't take a lot of attention.

I just love the new baked tacos shells that we find at the super market, they have come a long way from the taco shell that we had to fry then hang upside down on a rack. Another plus to these tacos, you can make a few or enough for a crowd. Just load them on a baking sheet pour in the filling and they are ready to bake. I am using left over Turkey today to make this awesome recipe. No matter how well we plan there is always a little left over turkey or chicken and what better way to make a left over come to life than a great Tex Mex Taco.
