It is only a few short weeks until Christmas and as I ponder about how to make this year’s event merry and bright, I thought I would share my ideas with you.

Clearly, the gifts under the tree with the eye-catching wrapping paper and bows were the focus of Christmas morning.
There’s one family member on your Christmas shopping list who will love whatever gift they get. Shopping for pets for the holidays is especially easy in Ahwatukee Foothills.
After a long day of cooking on Thanksgiving, the last thing you want to do is cook more for the rest of the year’s holidays. This Turkey Divan Casserole is easy to prepare, fast broiling time, and can be easily changed up. If your family is a fan of cheese, add shredded cheese prior to sprinkling with Parmesan cheese. Serve with rice or over buttered noodles, or can be served alone.
My assignment: In 700 words or less, I’m supposed to keep you and your money safe while you’re out buying for the holidays. How about I do it in 17 words and two punctuation points: do not buy gift cards, do not shop online, and do not get talked into extended warranties!
It’s a meeting of holidays so rare it will be tens of thousands of years before it happens again. Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah — the Jewish Festival of Lights — fall on the same day this year, creating what many celebrants have dubbed “Thanksgivukkah.” And it’s opened up a whole new world of culinary opportunities.
Here’s another reason to be thankful this holiday season — the cost of putting Thanksgiving dinner on the table is down slightly from last year.
Some area kids have band together to raise funds for the Philippines, which was ravaged by a typhoon a week ago, by having a lemonade stand/bake sale tomorrow afternoon.
November comes along and minds are on travel, turkey and family gatherings. This classic slider provides an autumn twist. This Bacon and Bleu Cheese Slider will fast become a family favorite and change up the typical “hamburger night.” The dish is fun, and uses a slight shortcut with cornbread mix and it’s easy to get the kids involved (buttering the pan, mixing the ingredients, what kid doesn’t want to crack an egg?). If you aren’t a bleu cheese fan, easily substitute equal amount of goat or gorgonzola cheese. For an extra kick, add one jalapeno (seeded) to the cornbread mix. Prefer a moister cornbread muffin? Replace 1 cup of the milk with one can creamed corn. Kids typically prefer a toned down version of the mayo, use more or less of the chipotle depending upon your families taste. These sliders make great appetizers for your holiday parties or a great main dish for family meals. Enjoy!

An inexpensive grooming for your dog can mean a better life for a homeless boxer at the Fourth Annual Boxer Luv Rescue dog wash this Sunday, Nov. 3, at Malinda’s Pampered Pets in Ahwatukee.
New York City has a zillion charms, but it may not be the ideal place to celebrate Halloween. Here’s the problem — where do you display your jack-o’-lantern if you live in an apartment building with no porch?
There are three killer insults on the body: oxidation, autoimmunity and inflammation. We need some level of inflammation to stay healthy so tissue and wounds heal from infections and injuries, however, when the inflammatory response becomes chronic problems occur. Chronic inflammation is unseen by the eye and a silent killer that accelerates aging, prevents fat loss and increases risk of disease.
The smell of roasted chicken, baked beans and homemade raisin bread will again fill the air near the Superstitions.
So maybe the chance to taste the flaky spawn of a doughnut and croissant won't get you lining up at the crack of dawn. Maybe you're holding out for a burger nestled between fried ramen noodles. Or perhaps it's the elusive McRib that moves you.

This soup is a stick-to-your ribs flexitarian special. Make it with chicken broth and prosciutto and you end up with a carnivore’s delight. Make it with vegetable stock and no prosciutto and you’ve got a vegetarian’s delight. Either way, it’s plenty hearty. The potatoes give it body and creaminess. The spinach and kale give it earthiness and a bright green color.
Like many Jewish holidays, Rosh Hashana — the Jewish new year — is rich with delicious, symbolic foods. Rounds of challah bread, for example, signify continuity, while apples and honey represent wishes for a sweet year to come. Of course, just as important is spending time with loved ones.
