Dashing Through A Winter Wonderland: Yule Log Recipe

Good Afternoon and hello to you!!

Thank you so very much reading
 the blog and visiting my posts... 
If I haven't told you how much I 
appreciate you and your readership...
I do.

I am so grateful and beyond thrilled
 that you are loving
the recipes and finding
 little bits of inspiration
 for your own home
here on the
Blue Ribbon Kitchen blog.

I'm touched and overjoyed
you are here... truly.

(It used to be only my mom reading all these posts...thanks mom)
(My sweet husband was quizzed regularly to see if he was actually reading
--not skimming, every word I lovingly typed —sorry honey)


This week...

Dashing through a winter wonderland...
It snowed... which was wonderful...
It was bitterly cold, which was not so wonderful...
and I'm finding, the faster I go...the further behind I seem to be.

After a busy few days with the very exciting, 
and very live, Hometalk Home Tour on Facebook,
with a whopping
 122k visitors...
Yes, that's right...
(I did a double take too...)
One hundred twenty-two thousand views...and counting.

How does someone make sure to have 
enough appetizers for a crowd like that?!
Luckily it was online... so we had enough of everything!!

The Hometalk Video is in this post!!
 If you want to watch... it's all here!

As far as the rest of the week...
I had hoped things would start to slow down...

Well, they have not...
