Gifts Galore

I asked my friend Tina W. from now on this blog she will be referred to as "The Cooking Queen" for some recipes, she is a friend that ALWAYS cooks YUMMY meals for her family... I'm talkin' plans them and makes a menu... Anyway when my kids eat her food, they always come home and say "The Cooking Queen" made the best {fill in the blank}... Every year I raid her recipes and always find some super hits! Well I was in a cooking funk, felt like I was making the same things over and over... So once again I called upon her and her mad skills... Not only did she give me recipes she made me a BINDER, complete with dividers and filled with recipes, she even included a cute pen. Yes, she is one of those above and beyond friends too! She really needs a blog to share her YUMMY recipes, don't you agree??




Oh yeah and after that she stopped back by with ceramic acorns from Pier 1.
Thank you "Cooking Queen"

Since I hostessed both Thanksgiving and Christmas, my parents decided to buy me this AMAZING Spode platter it is simply the Platter of ALL Platters and...
I LOVE IT....

Ok, what some of you may not know about Jen is that SHE IS VERY GENEROUS!!! Always there with something special, a card with Bible verses to fit your situation when you need encouragement, a delicious dinner when "something" happens in your family, just the absolute best a friend a person could be blessed with. So Jen, THANK YOU for all you do all the time! ~TinaW
