I won’t be spending  a lot of time in the kitchen this year  because we will be spending the day at my in-laws and I believe she’s having the food catered. However, I’m thinking  of making a dessert item but that’s not set in stone yet. How about you, what are your plans for Thanksgiving? Are you cooking?

    I never, ever, ever would have thought to make sweet potatoes with raspberry… but now, I can’t stop thinking about it! Several others are calling out to me, too. I am pinning this for later.
