    Great tips Kenley, my biggest obstacle every year is oven timing, having only one and it’s not super I have to time things and it is rarely seamless.

    I think your custom of having a day to give thanks is awesome!

  5. My friends made fun of me for my super organized cooking schedule when hosting brunch…but it’s the only way to offer a bunch of different delicious goodies at the same time!

    I love this, even if you’re only putting up 1 or 2, taking extra steps to make sure they’re comfortable (and obviously well fed) will make guests feel so special
