Food Photography + {Buffalo Cranberry Grilled Cheese}

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! We spent ours up in the mountains at my inlaws' cabin.  A good time was had by all.  It was beautiful, mostly relaxing (because a meal with a two-year-old can NEVER be described as fully relaxing!!), and fun.  The cranberry relish and pie bites were a hit!  My father-in-law mentioned at the table as we were finishing up the lavish meal, just how much love (and effort!) goes into preparing such a feast, and how quickly it is gobbled up and over.  So true! But the good news is, the leftovers last for a few more days :) ... Read more » about Food Photography + {Buffalo Cranberry Grilled Cheese}

Thanksgiving Side: {Tangy Green Bean Casserole}

This is the last day in the healthier Thanksgiving series that I embarked on this week.  It sure was fun to create all these new healthy dishes for you and your families to enjoy!  Like I said at the beginning, you don't have to use all of them, but just subbing in one of these healthier versions instead of the traditional will help you not to overdo it on Turkey-day :)  I'd love to hear which ones you actually cook, so be sure to email me or leave a comment afterwards!  Before making this dish, I felt as though green bean casserole was only invited to the big meal because of its gr ...
