    Have you ever tried bread from freshly ground wheat? So many people think they can't have gluten but it's not actually what the issue is but the dead over processed flour we buy in the stores. I grind my own wheat which is so so easy and make all my own wheat products and my husband (who thought he couldn't have gluten) and lots of my friends have been able to switch over. Freshly ground wheat has the highest value of vitamin e then any other food and has so many other health benefit. Just an idea. 🥰

    This is a lovely video, in the UK obviously we don’t celebrate thanksgiving (although, my auntie does because her husband is from the US), but it was really interesting to watch, and your so lucky to have a husband that you can just send to the thrift store (or charity shop in the UK) to pick things up…if I sent my husband to get goblets he’d probably get distracted and end up coming home with something completely unrelated 😂🤦🏼‍♀️🤷‍♀️ xx

    My dau-in-law is gluten free. She won’t even take a bite in a home that have gluten cooking. No matter if you tell her it is gluten free, she won’t eat it because it was baked in a kitchen that gluten has been baked. She calls it cross contamination. Have you known about this?

    Hi Andrea. Everything from your home to your table and delicious food look so wonderful and cozy. It's such a blessing to be able to sit down with your family during this amazing Thanksgiving season. I'm wondering if you could answer a question for me. I have a bench that was made from 100 year old barnwood. It's 30 in long so probably a little short to use as a coffee table, although my living room is not very large. I love the way yours looks as a coffee table. The only large flea market near me is 3 hours away. And of course this time of year, there aren't a lot of vendors there. I'm thinking I will go next spring. I'm hoping you can give me some pointers. How long do you think it needs to be? Do you think I could use my 30 inch bench for the time being? Is there any way I might be able to style it to make it work? I do love my little bench. The old barn wood is beautiful. I would appreciate any suggestions you could give me. Thanks so much.

    I am gluten free, celiac disease. I love how you showed that gluten free can be incorporated with everything else. My granddaughter is also allergic to nuts. We just put the nuts to the side and everyone can put them in if wanted. Your apple pie looks delicious,I would love to have the recipe and your roll and pie crust recipe. I also appreciate the care you take in everything you do. I am loving your pictures you are sharing. Also, I saw a piece like the one you put in your bedroom. Same exact thing and it said it was a dry sink. But I love it where you moved it.

    I watched this video yesterday in its entirety and I want to tell this young woman what a profound effect it had upon me! Not only is she a lovely person she is also a talented cook (with a husband who pitches right in!! 😊) but her calm demeanor during the Thanksgiving prep she was doing helped me immensely. We never know how our actions will affect others. Sometimes it’s nice to share the good things about YouTube with those who put in all the work producing videos!😊 so many things you did in this video I decided to try myself. Yes, I have prepared MANY Thanksgiving dinners over my 72 years yet I found your video inspiring. I still make a nice dinner for myself though my children are grown, one married to military living far away. The other we won’t go into here. I love holiday so I put in the effort. THANK YOU for taking the time and trouble to record all you did. Bless you and yours. I hope your holidays are WONDERFUL!

    I enjoyed watching you bake and plan. I am also gluten free,celiac, and I am always looking for good recipes. I don't see the recipe for the cranberry relish, can you tell me where it is or where to find it? Oh and I love your kitchen!

    Bless you and your family. What a beautiful dinner you made with love!!! My husband helps me as well, we do the full meal also! I only have a partial kitchen and half a stove, lol, this year. So we are gonna try smoked turkey on the treiger. Maybe pumpkin pie in the ninja foodi. We shall see. Thank you for being an inspiration ✨️ 💛
