Beef Stout Pie

I’m a big believer in keeping to the seasons.  I have my favorite foods that I like to prepare as well as my favorite activities associated with each season.  During Autumn, I always look forward to making Beef Stout Pie.  I stumbled across the recipe years ago in one of my Williams Sonoma catalogs.  It’s part of the Gastro-Pub collection, since it’s a favorite in pubs across the world.  Since it was a moody Autumn day where I’d be indoors, I thought it would be the perfect time to make…

Second Annual Thanksgiving Centerpiece Challenge

November 2018 Calendar

November 2018 Calendar It’s so hard to believe that the year is coming to a close.  We’re coming up on the last two months of the year, and it will be a mad dash through the holiday season.  The November 2018 calendar is the first of the holiday calendars.  When I was a young girl, I used to love the art of Joan Walsh Anglund, and especially her paper dolls.  I remember seeing them in magazines and collecting them.  The pilgrims you see above pay tribute to her paper dolls…
