Tis the season of thankfulness. We are thankful for, celebrate and honor those we hold dear - our family and friends. Take a trip down memory lane as Betty Rauch narrates some of our TTNers “ Favorite Holiday and Memories.”  Let the Food Network SIG inspire the chef in you with “ Highly Recommended.” Interested in celebrating the holidays TTN style? Mark your calendar for two upcoming TTN events. Looking for a juicy read during your holiday travels? Dive into Nancy Gold's, “Responses to What Is In Your Pocketbook” and “3 Weddings and 1 Hissy Fit.” Or Sally Dougan’s “In Case You Missed These.” Finally, reflect on what matters most by enjoying a poem about thankfulness and gratitude in our " Writer’s Spotlight."
