It’s only 2 weeks until Thanksgiving, can you believe it? I’m glad it’s just going to be immediate family at my house this year. All the delicious food but much more casual.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, I told you about these incredible Chocolate Dipped Strawberries from Fannie May here. Fannie May has generously offered to give one of my readers the same sample box I received to one of my readers. And they are going to have it to you in time for Thanksgiving! Can you picture these delectable strawberries on your dessert table?

Now onto the party! As you know, Debi of Recipes for my Boys and I have been co-hosting for a while now. Debi and I both have a distinctive sweet tooth. We decided we needed to have someone join us to balance us a bit. I’d like to introduce you all to Christie of Food Done Light. She’s got a sweet tooth too but she’s more reasonable, always looking for great ways the healthify (yes, my word) what we eat. I’ve met Christie and she is warm, sweet (I know, I’m using the word too much today) and just as down home as Debi and me. Christie will also be hosting the party on her page and doing weekly features as well as features on Facebook and Pinning.

Now you’ll have 3 times the love.

Here’s what caught my eye last week

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins from Inside Brucrew Life 
Apple Praline Bread from Manila Spoon
Hot Cocoa Marshmallow and Poptart Fudge from Pint Sized Baker
