Humble Contribution to the Feast

We are headed to North Carolina tomorrow to celebrate Thanksgiving with my husband's family. We can't wait for some good old fashioned family fun and feasting.

Since my sister-in-law is hosting the meal (thank you M and T!), and we're traveling from a fair distance, there isn't a ton we can do to contribute to the effort. Of course we'll help with cooking and cleaning as much as our hosts will allow but we always wish we could do more. (Dear family - you're welcome to come to Chicago for a holiday any time if you'd like a break!)

The last time we went to my sister-in-law's for Turkey Day, I brought along some white chocolate bark. I borrowed the recipe from my good friend Corey (Thanks C!) The bark was a HUGE hit. I knew that I'd have to bring some again this year. I'm getting hungry just looking at this.

Recipe is soooo simple! Melt two packages of white chocolate chips in a double boiler and throw in stick pretzels and peanuts. Spread melted concoction onto parchment-lined cookie sheet and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to set. Break apart and start chowing.

Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving. I am thankful for you! xoxo.


  1. My name is Judy Kelley, and I am the very proud mother of Erin. She has always been creative, but all her sewing, tutorials and fabulous photos have put her over the top. But the icing on the cake is her wonderful family. Dan is the best husband, and Madalyn and Daniel are the most delightful grandchildren. My husband and I are very thankful for these blessings.
