Friday Favorites from Camille Styles, Town & Country, Also the Crumbs Please, The Roasted Root and More

Good morning and a very happy Friday to you. I am ready for the weekend; it is funny because even though I have a busy, work filled weekend ahead it always feels like I have a little less stress because it is the weekend.

Here are a few of my favorite finds this week.

  1. Every year I say I'm going to make eggnog, but I never do. Can't get it in the supermarket here, so I have to make it myself. This recipe sounds particularly delicious.

  2. Chili looks delicious. I haven't made cornbread in months and I love it. Gonna have to make it. I just get eggnog at Braums. I think it's delicious.

  3. The pasta looks good.

    We had a topiary event here the last couple of years that I documented on several visits.
