Thanksgiving is quickly approaching – do you have your menu all planned? Dinner is obviously the star of the show on Thanksgiving, but what about breakfast? No one talks about what to serve for breakfast on Thanksgiving! Well, I am going to change that – after all, you have to eat something in the morning to prepare your stomach for all the goodness that is to come later in the day. So it might as well be a festive and seasonal treat – like my Orange Pecan Cranberry Muffins! They are full of fall flavors and are absolutely delicious. Plus you can make them the day before and just reheat them before you serve, making this a quick and easy Thanksgiving breakfast.

Does anyone notice anything different today? Something new? Something fresh and clean? Yep, that’s right, Chez CateyLou got a makeover!! What do you think?

I am loving my new site design! A big thanks to the wonderful Katie at Twin Stripe for designing my logo. Didn’t she do an amazing job? Also a big thanks to TheBetterHalf for dealing with all the technical headaches that came along with this lovely new site. I’ll tell you what, all this blogging stuff is a lot harder than we thought it would be! But it is totally worth it.

So in honor of the first post on my newly designed site,  I made peanut butter chocolate chip muffins.  I obviously had to include peanut butter, my one true love (sorry TheBetterHalf, but that’s payback for when you wouldn’t say you loved me more than the Eagles).
