    These are all fantastic! The cinnamon sweet potato biscuits as well as the pineapple chicken quesadillas look amazing. You have quite a wonderful recipe collection from this past year.

    Would you consider linking some of these up to our “Best of 2011″ recipe party happening this week? We’ve done breakfasts, breads, soups & main dishes so far, with crockpot meals and desserts yet to come. We’d love to have your recipes be part of the party.

    These are all amazing as usual…need more than one pair of stretchy yoga pants apparently!

    • Jessica replied: — December 29th, 2011 @ 5:44 pm

      Yes you must have 3 pairs of stretchy yoga pants.

      The small ones for when you can actually still fit in your jeans, but would rather be comfortable.

      The large ones for when you are being bad. And a second pair for when the first pair are dirty! :-D
