Dear Friends, Happy Thanksgiving to you. May the day be filled with everything good and wonderful. Thanksgiving is simply the best holiday of the year when family and friends gather together to relax without the stress and strain of “the holidays.” So enjoy your time with loved ones now. Next week, life will swing into high gear with the Holiday Season rolling down the tracks!
We generally don’t get too excited by Black Friday preferring to shop online in our comfy clothes eating a turkey sandwich, rather than fight the crowds in the stores and boutiques. Literally every retail establishment has amazing sales online. Our advice is to stick to the stylish sites that you know and love, and that make returning items easy. Please remember when you click through our site to shop, a portion of our commission from sales will be donated to our Charity of the Month. For November, we are proud to feature Boys’ Club New York, and then in December, we will partner with our long-time friends at Help USA.
I would like to share this recipe with you that is simply called, Klopps’ Best Apple Pie. I have been making this Apple Pie every Thanksgiving for a long, long time, because friends and family will not let me stop! Hope you enjoy it.
