Hi Everyone! We’re wrapping up our first year at Engineer Blogs and I’d like to say how much fun I’ve been having so far. After writing for nearly a year with all these other great engineers, I am glad we’re still enjoying what we’re doing and we hope you’re enjoying it as well!

Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday because I love to cook.  (Washing dishes is a different story, and my husband has been officially designated as chief dish-cleaning engineer.)  Since I reached adulthood, I’ve been searching for the perfect combination of dishes for Thanksgiving.  Of course, even the perfect dish takes time to perfect.
