Halloween is NOT a Religious Holiday

Halloween is probably my favorite holiday. Each year as it approaches, I find myself getting more excited, happy and more creative as Halloween crafts and costume ideas come to mind.I also find myself getting more annoyed by people who don't understand the holiday.

It wasn’t the most hilarious Fangsgiving we’ve had—some years are more subdued than others—but it was good eats and family. I swear by Alton Brown’s brining recipe. Every year we get moist turkey.

Also Mr. J says my orange cinnamon cranberry sauce is like crack.I’m completely exhausted now and probably just missed the window on that glass of wine. No matter, there’s PIE!...more
