As always, Thanksgiving 2017 was filled with good food, fond memories and lot’s of laughter with friends and families.  Across America retailers are in high gear to save us money as we enter the holiday season.  Because of the “food and too much fun” coma I’m still in, Black Friday sales hype can make me feel overwhelmed.  So years ago, we decided to pass on the sales and make today our Favorite Friday for another reason.

Cookbooks, and online recipes, do one thing very well.  They provide us with photos of food that allow us to eat the food first with our eyes.  Food blogs have taken the photography of food to a new level.  The love affair with good food grows stronger everyday.

This bowl of clam chowder looks like we could dip that spoon right in and pull out the chunks of potatoes, celery and onion.  We can almost smell the pepper on the creamy surface.  Close your eyes and see if you can envision what the kitchen looks like that got this meal ready for the family table.
