What I ate for Thanksgiving Dinner

Pin It!

My Thanksgiving dinner plate: Macaroni and cheese is better than turkey any day. Chandler Bing would agree :).

5 Minute Microwave Chocolate Truffles

Pin It!

Chocolate truffles you can make in minutes… They can even be made in the microwave. For some reason, I’d always been under the impression that preparing homemade truffles is difficult and time-consuming.
