Happy Thanksgiving

I would like to wish everybody out there a happy, healthy and "stuff your face" awesome Thanksgiving.

You can be sure I'll be using lots of margarine in my recipes to help reduce the amount of saturated fat without skimping on taste. It will be used to hold the spices onto the skin of my turkey, to make my whipped potatoes delightfully indulgent, to thicken my sweet potato pie and to add just the creamy touch to my apple crisp.

This year, I am truly thankful for all of the love in my life. I am surrounded by good people every day - my family, my friends, my boyfriend, my neighbors, my co-workers. Also, there's the sweet old man at the grocery store, the maintenance guy with the huge grin at my apartment, the security cop at work, etc.

Never underestimate the power of a smile. If you do one thing today, take the time to smile, genuinely smile, at someone you don't know. It really could make all the difference in their life.

Happy Thanksgiving, Internet friends.
