After Halloween and Election Day, we are all waiting for the next season to celebrate. As a kickoff to the holiday season, this November will be like no other November we’ve seen before, but there’s a lot to look forward to. One is spending time in the kitchen with family. It doesn’t have to be Thanksgiving Day to get ready for all the fun, and you’ll be prepared come Turkey Day.
In fact, you don’t even have to get a book dirty to get some fun recipes. Have you seen all the fun cookbooks that are available through Libby?
