Hi friends! In addition to election cakes (#MakeAmericaCakeAgain!), this is as political as we're going to get around here. Vote for Clean Air and a Happy Earth with me and the Clean Air Moms Action this November! (You know I love all things environmentally friendly, including voting for clean air for my kids.) I know this election season has been kind of a drag, but I really am super excited about voting and love our country! :) #CleanAirMomsVote
It's time to vote! Why the environment is one of my top issues this November - I hope it will be for you, too! Let's not let the White Walkers take over...

Episode 11 of the podcast is with +Jane Mosbacher Morris from To the Market. She is delightful! Also, she shares the cutest Oreo snowmen you ever did see. http://thisweekfordinner.com/2015/12/03/oreo-snowmen-this-week-for-dinner-podcast-11-jane-mosbacher-morris/
Feel free to try different colors and add-ons to turn the snowmen into other characters! (Also, Jane will laugh that I put her as the author...lots of people make these, but I'm going to give her credit anyway.)

Thanksgiving is just days away, which probably means that many of you are on the cusp of baking a pie (or two…or three!). Lucky for us today's podcast guest is a pie expert! I was actually planning to buy my pies at the store this year (GASP!), but after talking with today's guest, I've decided ...

To support American Heart Month, I worked with the Salmon Council to create a recipe featuring heart-friendly salmon. This Southwestern Salmon Orzo Salad is SO GOOD. You can ask all my friends who ate it at a block party last week! http://thisweekfordinner.com/2016/02/24/southwestern-salmon-orzo-salad/
