Cranberry Curd Bars with Walnut Shortbread Crust

I made these Cranberry Curd Bars with Walnut Shortbread Crust last Thanksgiving. They're not as pretty as the ones on The Kitchn, but they sure tasted good. If you like lemon bars, you'll gobble these up.

Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Glara and Rick, this recipe is for you. It was borrowed from Simply Recipes.

K used chicken sausage only because I requested it. With hot dogs and Spam on the menu, it only seemed right to have another protein. You're more than welcome to follow the original recipe. What follows is just how K made it for our camping trip. 

Gift Pop-Up Card

Another card based on one of the templates from Playful Pop-Up Cards, by Takami Suzuki. This card was for my old friend Heather's birthday.

Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday

Looking forward to Thanksgiving tomorrow. The above photos were taken last year by K and the food prepared by my dad. I'm lucky to have a dad who not only loves to cook, but does it well. He is the one who taught me how to make an omelette when I could barely see over the stove. He also influenced my taste buds—explaining my affinity for condiments, stinky cheese, and tamales, to name a few. Thank you, dad, for teaching me to appreciate good food and how to recreate it at home.
