How to Roast a Turkey Breast {Technically half a turkey breast}

Hi Folks, I haven’t disappeared off the face of the earth. Life has happened, and I am treading water for the moment, but here is a re-run of my all-time most popular post, and it’s rather appropriate for serving at this time of year. After re-reading this post, I decided I had better roast a turkey breast today and follow some of my own advice for picking oneself out of a slump. Take care and I hope you are well. Enjoy some turkey!

Where is your happy place? What is the one thing in the world that can pick you up out of a slump and place you on solid ground? It’s important that you know yours and that you can summon it up on any given day when life is more than a little topsy turvy. There are too many moments that can throw you for a loop so please, if there is one take away from this post, research your happy place and know how to reach it at a moment’s notice. It is essential.

Leftover Cranberry Sauce Streusel Topped Muffins

I hate to be alone in the mornings. It’s boring. When I was a little girl, and wanted my brother to wake up and get crackin’ so that we could play a game or watch Saturday cartoons together, I would throw a couple of dog biscuits onto his bed and our two Cocker Spaniels would jump on top of him and run all over the bed looking for the treats. When he would emerge from his room, I would be sitting on the couch, pretending to look uninterested in his arrival, and  I would try not to smile. Unfortunately, I have the worst Poker face known to man. The worst.

This Maple Roasted Pumpkin Salad would be a tantalizing and bright way to start off your holiday meal. Add some dried cranberries or make a cranberry vinaigrette to give it that extra festive flare.

A Thanksgiving Round-Up

Hi All,

I am so very grateful. My family is healthy, I live in a country where I have a multitude of freedoms, and I, and those that I love, are safe, well fed, have a roof over our heads and have little to truly worry about. My hope would be that people everywhere could experience these things and as tomorrow approaches, I do know how very lucky I am and have so much to be thankful for.

Here are some recipes from posts past that might fit the bill for tomorrow.

Peace and love…Geni

Of course, Plain and Simple Pumpkin pie
