The Communal Table & What We’re Bringing

In celebration of Thanksgiving, we’ve joined up with the entire food community for a Virtual Thanksgiving called, The Communal Table!

Organized by the Food Network, many well-known and respected food experts will be gathering together and sharing their favorite holiday dishes with all of us! Wahoo!

They kindly gave us the chance to participate and link up with their great recipes! How neat is that? 😉

So, we chose 3 of our very favorite holiday treats to bring to the Communal Table, #pullupachair, Thanksgiving Event!
