    Sweet Potatoes are always my favorite!

    For the first time ever, I’m trying to make a vegan Thanksgiving. Lucky for me it’s just the hubby and I as the lab rats this year. Oh, I mean taste testers. 🙂

    Looking at your list sure makes me logn for a more traditional meal!

    Our menu this year –

    * Turkey , Cornish Hen , Ham
    * Cornbread Dressing, Black-eyed Peas, Rice, Macaroni & Cheese
    * Homemade Rolls, Cranberry Sauce
    * Peach Cobbler, 7-Up Cake, Sweet Potato Pie, Ambrosia Salad

    Only unique recipes is the adaptations to the Peach Cobbler & Ambrosia Salad recipes. The cornbread dressing recipe & 7-up cake have been in the family for years.

    This is the closest to our dressing recipe – the only change is some of the seasonings & addition of butter. http://divascancook.blogspot.com/2009/11/homemade-southern-cornbread-dressing.html

    Oh, I love love love Ambrosia. Now I’m wishing I’d thought of making that! I haven’t had it in ages.

    And 7-up cake sounds interesting!

    You must be cooking for a ton of people.

    Angela – It’s gonna be between 12 and 15 people. The 7-Up cake is basically a really lemony pound cake.

    I love seven-up cake. I remember my mama making that at Thanksgiving when I was a girl.

    We ate out this year. Mama went out of town, Daddy didn’t want to leave his lazy boy and my brother went camping. My in-laws celebrate Thanksgiving at their church and I’m always uncomfortable in big crowds of people I don’t know. I wish I had made a meal for the two of us because the restaurant’s dressing wasn’t very good. I love my cornbread dressing.

    Cute picture Brianna made. It’s her hands, right? Fun idea!

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
