Cauliflower-Cheddar Soup

Tonight I made a Rachael Ray recipe from her show a few weeks ago. Her recipes we tend to either love or hate, no in between for some reason.

Thanksgiving Favorites

A few of my favorite Thanksgiving related items. Some I have, some I just wish I had. We usually go to a buffet on Thanksgiving with a big group of friends and family, but I just found out our normal restaurant has closed.
