Mix It Up...Day 1 of a new blog hop and a Giveaway



Hi everyone!
 Welcome to Day 1 of a blog/social media hop for Martingale's newest compilation book, 
MIX IT UP.

 16 quilts from 16 designers. Compiled by Lissa Alexander.





Here is my quilt, Step it Up

...in the book


...with Cake Mix Recipe 8

...on the guest bed

 ...sideways, the way I think I will hang it.

For my quilt I used one Cake Mix Recipe 8 and a total of 26 - 10" squares of assorted cream prints  and a total of 26 - 10" squares of red, indigo, and brown prints from all my collections for Moda.
My best tip for sewing...put the light fabric on top under the cake mix paper.  After cutting the parts apart, press to the dark print with the paper on. 
This keeps your half square triangles nice and square. Then, remove the paper.

I really enjoyed selecting the fabrics for this quilt and equally enjoyed sewing the cream prints to the dark prints with the papers.  Arranging the rows was fun and I think you can see that substituting other colors or, including more colors would be just at good looking.  I will be using this quilt a lot throughout the year, as it fits in perfectly with my decorating scheme. I LOVE this quilt.


I hope you like  Step it Up and the others in the MIX IT UP book! Each and every one is wonderful, designed by very talented quilters.

  1. I love to mix up a Cherry Berry salad for our holiday meals. I’m guessing your least favorite is yams (that’s mine)!?!

    1. Love the book and your quilt! I love to mix up dressing for the holidays and im guessing yams aren't your favorite!

      Delete
  2. This is cutest quilt! I love making sweet potatoes/candies yams for Thanksgiving, but I know not everyone is a fan!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I love mixing up a tangy spicey cranberry salsa to go with our turkey, also experimenting with various add-ins to the stuffing. Im guessing you might not care for green bean casserole?

    ReplyDelete
  4. I think my favorite to make (and to eat!) is cranberry salad! I’m going to guess your least favorite is candied yams, the kind with marshmallows. �� I like sweet potato casserole but not candied yams!

    ReplyDelete
  5. My favorite dish to whip up for Thanksgiving dinner is Raw Cranberry Salad. I take two bags of fresh cranberries and shred them in my food processor , I add sugar and let set over night in refrigerator. On Thanksgiving Morn I add drained crushed pineapple , and stir in Fresh whipping cream I whipped with my mixer. This salad always has a place at our table. I do not care for making candied yams, I can guess that maybe they are a dish you are not fond of either. Your fabric collections are beautiful and I cannot wait to get my hands on your book. Blessed Holidays to you ��

    ReplyDelete
  6. Favorite thing to mix up is yummy salads -- they are always family favorites for their variety ... and your least favorite could be sweet potatoes! What an awesome giveaway and Happy Holidays to you and yours.

    ReplyDelete
  7. My favorite thing to mix up is Broccoli Orange Salad. Yum!! I am guessing your least favorite is creamed spinach.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Beautiful quilt! I would love to make this quilt. I always bake my pecan pie recipe that my husband loves. I guess getting up early to start the turkey and all the meal preparation is is your least favorite part of Thanksgiving.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I usually bake leg of lamb instead of turkey or ham. Everyone loves it and easy to cook. I'm going to guess your least favorite dish is green bean casserole. Happy Thanksgiving!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love mixing up the pies. Obviously pumpkin is on the menu (Husband request) and then something else -- cherry, apple, pecan, lemon meringue ... you name it. I'm thinking your least might be the gravy????

    ReplyDelete
  11. My favorite thing to mix up for Thanksgiving is the dressing �� I’m guessing your least favorite is cranberries ��‍♀️ I love recipe 8 ❤️

    ReplyDelete
  12. My favorite thing to mixup is sweet potato casserole! My mom was one to open a can of yams..pour in some maple syrup and add some marshmallows. It took an awful long time for me to like a starch that was orange in color! So for family that still likes a little sweet with that potato...I give some cinnamon, brown sugar, other spices, pecans and toast those on top. I am going to guess that maybe the least favorite dish would be corn casserole (creamed corn with crackers, eggs, milk, bread crumbs on top). Happy (Gobble Gobble Day) Thanksgiving! Many Thankful Blessings!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I like baking a pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving. I'm guessing you don't like mixing up dressing?? Your quilt is wonderful with all those small hst's :0)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I make lemon self saucing pudding which can be served hot or cold. Love the HST`s in this lovely quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Mixing up pumpkin & pecan pies are my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love my stepmoms fruit salad. It has all kinds of fruit along with cottage cheese, cream cheese and whipped topping. It's best after it sets overnight. Definitely not for the calorie conscious.�� But it is delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  26. My favorite mto mix up at Thanksgiving is dressing (turkey and gravy)! I think your least favorite is sweet potatoes. At any rate, I can't wait to stuff myself.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love your quilt and your fabric. So beautiful

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's been fun to read all of the replies! I never once have had sweet potato pie or casserole. I guess it isn't a Canadian thing?!? I love to make the turkey because I love to EAT the turkey! I'm guessing that your least favourite thing to make is the turkey and you make your hubby take care of it! Thanks for this chance and your quilt is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love making dressing. Actually I love everything about making Thanksgiving dinner. What I don’t love is the bag of ugh they stuff into the bird. Could that be what you don’t love?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love mixing the turkey, dressing and gravy together after Thanksgiving to make hot, open faced sandwiches. Fabrics are beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love making cornbread stuffing with sausage and apples in it. I'm betting you don't like that jellied cranberry sauce out of a can.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love mixing up the mashed potatoes and gravy most likely because it is my favorite thing to eat! I am guessing g your least favorite thing to make is the stuffing. Love your beautiful collaboration. Best wishes!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love mixing up the pies- apple,pumpkin, pecan, as well as the cheesy corn that my nieces and nephew love. I’m guessing that you don’t like the traditional green bean casserole much! We don’t serve that at our house:)

    ReplyDelete
  34. My favorite thing to whip up used to be the pumpkin pies, but since I discovered the huge ones at Costco, why bother? Leaves me more time to sew! I'm guessing your least favorite is the green bean casserole!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I had a Thanksgiving baby so that is my all time favorite thing to have "mixed up". My dad fed him pumpkin pie the next day so that is my next favorite. Pumpkin pie is Turkey Boy's favorite part of Thanksgiving also. I imagine you take great pride in your sweet potatoes, maybe mashed with pecans, coconut, and maple syrup. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love to make candied yams from scratch rather than just opening a can. Not sure what to guess for you, maybe making the gravy. That always seems like a challenge to get right at our house.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I whip up my grandma's cranberry jello salad each Thanksgiving. It's full of chunky cranberries, pineapple, apples, and pecans--tastes like autumn! I'm guessing you don't care for Stuffing inside the turkey. That was our family tradition until I became the cook. ;) Now, that stuffing is baked in its own casserole dish. Happy Thanksgiving!

    ReplyDelete
  38. My favourite is home backed beans. I suspect your least favourite might be pumpkin pie? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  39. My favorite thing to mix up is fresh cranberry relish. The turkey just isn't the same without it. I'm going to guess you don't like stuffing which I like to eat all year long.

    ReplyDelete
  40. My favorite thing is getting the Turkey ready for my husband to do on the Weber Charcoal grill. It turns out every time he makes it. It has a great Smokey taste, and browns up so nice. Doing this leaves me more room for the oven fixings...and yes I do make the green bean casserole because my oldest son loves it...me..not so much. Everyone have a Blessed Thanksgiving! We all have so much to be thankful for.

    ReplyDelete
  41. My favorite thing is dressing. My home recipe. Guessing what you don't care about - green beans casserole (that is my least favorite item).

    ReplyDelete
  42. My favorite thing to mix up is Spicy Chex Mix snack!! I think your least favorite is candied yams!
    Susie

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love everything you do, and this quilt is just perfect. I look forward to making one just like it, and would love to win the giveaway. I bet it's the green bean casserole that is your least favorite...it is my least favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love to mix up my mother's cranberry salad for Thanksgiving -- simple ingredients, fresh cranberries, sugar, pecans, marshmallows and Cool Whip! I'll bet you don't like sweet potatoes -- my husband hates them!

    ReplyDelete
  45. My favorite thing to mix up for Thanksgiving are desserts! I always make something they normally like, like cherry cheesecake tarts and i like to try something new. Last year i made a pumpkin trifle and they loved it. I am guessing your least favorite is sweet potato pie!

    ReplyDelete
  46. For Thanksgiving, cranberries are a must. A very elegant twist that is a favorite of mine and the family is poached pears in cranberries. I used bosc pears, cook the cranberries as usual. The pears are peeled and halved. Sautee the pears gently on low is the cranberry sauce. I arrange them on a fancy plate, pouring the cranberry sauce over the pears. The whole family just thinks it's wonderful.
    But, I imagine you like don't like the clean up.

    ReplyDelete
  47. You can't beat Turkey and Cheesecake - but not on the same plate! Not sure about your least favorite

    ReplyDelete
  48. Your quilt is beautiful. My favorite mix-up for Thanksgiving is pecan pie. I'm guessing that your least favorite is deviled egg.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My favorite thing to mix up is our family tradition ——oyster dressing! But I’ll bet your least favorite if green bean casserole—also a Thanksgiving favorite in many families.

    ReplyDelete
  50. My face thing to mix up is an apple crumb pie, either regular or gluten free, depending on whether my daughter who has Celuac Disease will be eating it. Gorgeous quilt!

    ReplyDelete

  52. My favorite and very easy item that is so quick to prepare is spiced pecans...they are great for a quick fix of protein and sugar if the family is having to wait for dinner to be ready and at the table. My guess is you may not be a deviled egg fan....many people are not, but once they taste mine they change their minds. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. We all have so very much for which we are grateful.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Betsy, my favorite thing to mix up for Thanksgiving dinner are my pecan pies!! My guess for your least favorite is all that chopping for homemade stuffing.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love to make carrot casserole! It is similar to sweet potato casserole but a bit lighter. When we first tried it, everyone loved it and we haven't had a family holiday meal without it. I'm guessing that you aren't a fan of brussel sprouts.....My daughter in law makes the best brussel sprout dish with bacon, cranberries, pine nuts....it is sooo good!!! My birthday is tomorrow---I'd LOVE to win this bundle!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. My fave is chopping up a cranberry fruit relish vs the canned cranberry sauce. I'm guessing yours is stuffing the turkey.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thanksgiving dinner always includes these favorites—pumpkin pie from fresh pumpkin, homemade cranberry sauce, and candied sweet potatoes. Sometimes homemade hot rolls. I am guessing you don’t like to make pie crust.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I LOVE your Step it Up quilt! I can't wait to get my hands on the book and make it!
    My favorite things to make for Thanksgiving are cranberry jello salad and cheese cake. Not sure what your least favorite might be, maybe sweet potato casserole?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thanksgiving means turkey, mashed spuds, yams, cranberry sauce, whatever veggie most of the people there like, slad, and pies - pecan and coconut creme. And if the coconut cream doesn't turn out like it should have, there is always pumpkin pie. My guess is you don't like pumpkin pie.

    ReplyDelete
  59. My favorite thing to make for Thanksgiving is candied yams - plenty of brown sugar and butter, and no marshmallows involved! Also pumpkin pie (I do cheat and use pre-made pie crusts). I don't know what your least favorite thing would be - green bean casserole?

    ReplyDelete
  60. My favorite thing to mix up for Thanksgiving is a bread pudding recipe I have been using for a long time- its just gives another dessert to choice from along with pumpkin and mince pies

    ReplyDelete
  61. My favorite mix it up is my family stuffing/dressing recipe. Even if I just make it for a small group it's so worth all the effort and the wonderful fragrance in the house. I LOVE your pattern....it's been on my mind for sometime!

    ReplyDelete
  62. My family's "must have" fix-it-up is left over wild rice and left over stuffing. We eat early afternoon and the aforesaid combo is mandatory for the evening meal. Stumped on what may not be on your favorite list - maybe brussel sprouts? Would love to get that gorgeous fabric - a guaranteed winner no matter what quilt it would bevused in!

    ReplyDelete
  63. My favorite thing to mix up is stuffing, bread cubes, seasoning, lots of butter, then baked in a pan, not in the bird. My husband doesn’t like it, so Thanksgiving is the only time I have it. I’m guessing that pie crust is your least favorite thing to make. (Love your new fabric line.)

    ReplyDelete
  64. My favorite thing is a casserole using rice, broccoli and cheese whiz. I only get it on Thanksgiving, so calories are forgiven! Love the book and your fabrics! Thanks for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  65. This comment has been removed by the author.

  66. My favorite is a seven layer salad! Never the same seven ingredients!

    ReplyDelete
  67. My favorite part is making pies. We live on an apple orchard so there are a great variety! Perhaps you don’t like Cream corn? My grandmother’s was the best!
    I collect your fabric & love this new line.

    ReplyDelete
  68. First, love your quilt! I love making Candied Sweet Potatoes! Your least favorite might be squash!

    ReplyDelete
  69. My favorite is great mashed potatoes and wonderful fresh cranberry-orange sauce. Your least favorite might be candied sweet potatoes.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love mixing up my chocolate merengue pies and I bet you dread all the prep work for your dressing!! I hate all that chopping myself. Great giveaway!!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. My favorite thing to make is sweet potato souffle. I'm guessing your least favorite is making pie crust.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love using the cake mixes. I was given some last year and fell in love.

    ReplyDelete
  73. My favorite Thanksgiving “mix” is food and family! Your least favorite might be the dressing!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. My thing is the decorating the table, I have learned to do a pretty good pineapple upside down cake, baked in a cast iron pan. I imagine you might not be fond of clean up.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I love to mix up either pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting or pumpkin cheesecake. I'm going to guess your least favorite is sweet potatoes, because that's what I like the least.

    ReplyDelete
  76. My favorite thing to mix up is sweet potato casserole with pecan topping! I'm going to guess that your least favorite dish is stuffing.

    ReplyDelete
  77. My favorite is Orange Jello Pretzel Salad. I'm thinking your least favorite is green bean casserole. Love your Step It Up quilt. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I absolutely love your Step it Up quilt - it's a winner! My favorite thing to mix up is my mom's Sticky Cinnamon Buns. Not sure all the relatives would come without them. I'm guessing your least favorite is the mess left in the kitchen at the end!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Love your new book!! My favorite thing to mix up is homemade egg noodles. A great side to the turkey, gravy, and potatoes. I'm guessing your least favorite is fruitcake (?) Thanks for the fun giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  80. My favorite thing to mix up is the gravy and I'm guessing that your least favorite is candied yams. This is a very generous giveaway, thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Your quilt is gorgeous! I enjoy mixin' up a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dinner. I'm guessing you don't like Brussels sprouts.

    ReplyDelete
  82. A favorite at our Thanksgiving is rice pilaf made with turkey broth. So rich and so good! I think green bean casseroles have had their day and thats one you don't like.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I love Thanksgiving! The smells and food. I love making a safe dressing with giblets, mashed rutabegas with bacon, pecan pie and, of course, traditional pumpkin. PLUS next day leftovers. My guess is you probably don't like making the gravy. That is always the last minute challenge. Have not used Cake Mix Recipe, love the idea and your quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I don't know that I have a favorite to make. But my Gram, who still makes a great feast at 99, was determined to put a chicken, in a duck, in a turkey about 6 years ago! It's our favorite Thanksgiving story!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Your quilt is beautiful. Thank you for your giveaway.
    My favorite thing to mix up is the Pumpkin Pie and I think your least favorite is Dressing.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I like to bake, but do not like to cook, so I make lots of goodies for Thanksgiving, my favorite being a cherry cobbler. I think your least favorite thing to make is turkey.

  87. Half square triangles! They have so many great uses. Love LOVE that sky blue in the upcoming collection. Favorite to make--dessert! Your least favorite? Stuffing?

    ReplyDelete
  88. I like to mix up a pineapple cake. I'm guessing your least favorite is squash.

    ReplyDelete
  89. We don't have Thanksgiving in the UK so i will tell you my favourite part of the Christmas dinner which is pigs in blankets, i.e. sausages wrapped in bacon. I am guessing that your least favourite part could be sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows. Thank you for a great giveaway. x

    ReplyDelete
  90. I love to make my grandmother's pumpkin pie recipe. It's more like a pumpkin custard and is really yummy. I also like to set the table with things that belonged to my mother and grandmothers. It makes me feel as if they're there with us. Maybe your least
    favorite is the stuffing?

    ReplyDelete
  91. I love your quilt and fabrics, it looks so cozy. My favorite thing to mix up are my pumpkin pies. I use very special pie plates that have been in the family for at least 100 years. I think your least favorite thing to mix up is the cranberry sauce.

    ReplyDelete
  92. My favorite and expected contribution is Pecan Pie, a family recipe from Tanta Anna. I actually tried to bring a very delicious store-bought replacement one very busy year and still have not been able to live it down. Perhaps yours is something like the main ingredient, the Turkey, due to all the prep time that takes us away from our quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  93. We have been invited to a friends house for Thanksgiving for years and they always ask that I bring deviled eggs. Somehow mine taste different from anyone else's. My least favorite dinner side is green bean casserole. I believe it's an acquired taste.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I love to make an apple cranberry salad using the recipe my husband's grandma gave me many years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I love the smell of cornbread dressing. It's the one side dish that seems to pull the dinner together.

    ReplyDelete
  96. We’ve embraced a “new” tradition of making a mix up of veggies, fruits, meats and cheese platter in the shape of a turkey. This is typically made just before dinner time with the grandchildren who’ll gladly participate. Family, food, memories to savor - just like quilts. Yours is rich and tastefully done. Thank you for sharing and the chance.

    Happy Thanksgiving too!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I enjoy making the pies and the stuffing for Thanksgiving. To me, the turkey can be one of the most problematic parts, so I am guessing it might be yours as well. The other possibility would be mashed potatoes -- so much peeling, large steaming pot, and last minute mashing!

    ReplyDelete
  98. A pumpkin cake is my favorite, maybe because a favorite aunt brought the recipe into our family. Perhaps your least favorite is cleaning closely followed by sweet potatoes (which is my guess because I don't like them).
    Your quilt is appealing. I used my first cake mix this summer and am in the process of assembling the blocks.
    Connie

    ReplyDelete
  99. I just enjoy the process of making yeast rolls for the feast. My new twist on them is using sweet potatoes in the mix. It gives such a pretty soft color. I'm betting you don't like making gravy.

    ReplyDelete
  100. If I’m cooking it’s a pecan pie as that’s the hubby’s favorite pie. If we are guests it’s whatever is requested. I have 2 guesses for your least favorite. 1 is prepping the turkey. Getting that bag of innards out & any last pieces of ice plus the rinsing. Suddenly that turkey can be a slippery fellow. 2nd is cleaning & picking up the house for company above what is normally done & ironing that tablecloth.

    ReplyDelete
  101. My favorite is planning and getting ready for the day our family gets together. Then it is always over so quickly, oh no! I'll let someone else make the pumpkin pie--not my favorite. Your least favorite thing is most likely the pumpkin pie also!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I make my mother's recipe for pumpkin pie, my favorite with whipped cream! Maybe your least favorite is the green bean casserole, I know that is my least favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  103. My fave to mix-up is my mom's sweet potato casserole--always a hit. I'm thinking your least fave mix-up is the stuffing/dressing? Looks like a great book and a beautiful quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I enjoy eating homemade coleslaw with apple in it-one of my favourites. I will guess that your least favourite thing to make is dressing for the turkey-not my favourite.

    ReplyDelete
  105. My mix it up is ....Cole slaw. From my MIL, my husband is not sure a turkey dinner is good without it. My guess for your least fave......sweet potato casserole.

    ReplyDelete
  106. My favorite mix it up is Cranberries in the Snow. I don't normally care for cranberries, but this recipe is made with jello and has a cream cheese, marshmallow creme topping...to die for!! I'm guessing your least favorite is green been casserole!!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Absolutely love Step It Up! I enjoy mixing up Apple and Pecan Dressing and everyone in the fam seems to enjoy it. It is a lot of work however - lots of chopping, etc. - so perhaps you don't enjoy mixing up dressing? Happy Thanksgiving to you!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Love the cake mix papers! I've got a great recipe for a chocolate bundt cake stuffed with cream cheese & icing sugar in the middle, drizzled with cherries all around. I would guess stuffing the turkey is your least favorite - it certainly is mine!

  109. Love all parts of thanksgiving. Hope not to eat too much

    ReplyDelete
  110. I love your quilt! And this is such a generous giveaway offer - wow! For years, our family has enjoyed making Savannah Casserole -- a mix of steamed broccoli, carrots, and onions, topped with a cream cheese sauce and pecans. So good : ) Is peeling all the butternut squash your least favorite thing to do?

    ReplyDelete
  111. I love your quilt! My favorite thing to make ( please don't gag!) is the giblet gravy. It brings back memories of my sweet mom and her Thanksgiving dinners. She was a great cook. Could your least favorite thing to do be cleaning house for the holiday? I know it's mine. I could be sewing!

    ReplyDelete
  113. I love your quilt and especially your beautiful fabric lines!!! We don't celebrate Thanksgiving like you do over there but what I really like this time of the year is a creamy pumpkin soup with carrots and ginger, served with a little grape seed oil! Mmmmmh delicious! I can't imagine what your least favorite is - well, my least favorite thing to do is doing the dishes! Maybe you agree 😂😂😂! Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I love to make sweet & savory stuffing for our turkey. My mix includes apples and a bit of mild Italian sausage. Can't wait to get my hands on a supply of your new fabric when it becomes available in my LQS. It's GORGEOUS!

    ReplyDelete
  115. Hi Betsy, my favorite dish to make at Thanksgiving is the stuffing for the turkey. I use my dad's recipe and everyone loves it. This may be your least favorite dish, only you know!!! I love your quilt, red, blue and backgrounds are one of my favorite combinations. This one will be on my to do list for sure. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  116. I love your quilt, Betsy! Dramatic finish, but easy enough to work on a bit at a time. My favorite thing to mix up at Thanksgiving is the dressing/stuffing. One year I made a recipe using White Castle sliders, and last year I made some chipotle concoction that everyone loved (but now I can’t remember how I did it!). I’m going to guess that cooking is your least favorite part of Thanksgiving.

  119. My favorite thing to mix up at Thanksgiving is the fresh cranberry sauce. I found a recipe a few years ago and it is now a favorite. Hmmm, your least favorite. Maybe the job of picking the turkey carcass clean? Or the need to rise extra early to get the turkey cooking?

  120. I love to mix up stuffing or dressing depending on where you are from in the country. Just ripping the bread and adding spices to it is just fun to me. Your least favorite to eat, scalloped oysters?

  126. One of my favorite things to make is the stuffing - love the smell of the seasoning simmering in the melted butter.
    A wild guess as to your least favorite - cleaning and getting the turkey ready?

  127. I have a wonderful recipe that I found in a Better Homes & Garden magazine several years ago for Vegetarian Cornbread Dressing. My family loves it and we always make a double batch so there is plenty for the day after. Of course who doesn't love the mashed potatoes and gravy. Thanksgiving dinner is such a wonderful treat and I am thankful to be blessed with my beautiful family.

I love making pumpkin pies and the dressing but my oldest daughter is a vegetarian and she fills up on the casserole and mashed potatoes (no turkey gravy for her either). I try to make the veggie casserole as best as I can. I would guess you might not like making the dressing...or stuffing for the turkey...(my first thought was "you love it all-there's nothing you don't like to mix up"...lol). Thanks for a chance to win!
