Throw a stress-free, festive holiday gathering for your family of friends! This unique and beautifully packaged Friendsgiving guide is filled with inspired menus, twenty-five creative recipes, tips, and more. Friendsgiving is everything you love about Thanksgiving-- think memorable Turkey Day feast-- without the things you dread, like nagging family members and awkward conversations. This epic Friendsgiving guide includes everything you need to throw a memorable occasion-- minus the tension and stress. In Friendsgiving, you'll find: Handy timelines, shopping tips, and advice for planning ahead Leftovers strategies, wine pairings, and music suggestions Twenty-five easy, delicious recipes, such as Stuffing with Italian Sausage and Caramelized Fennel, Southern Tomato Pudding, and Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Arugula-Walnut Pesto Convenient options for variations, as well as suggestions for what to make and what to ask guests to bring-- because good friends want to pitch in too! You won't need to be a perfect host or slave over a stove for days. Instead, Friendsgiving will give you the insight and advice for creating a fun, unforgettable occasion to eat and drink with friends. Tap into your own creativity with an offering of diverse menus, including a Southern Feast, Cuban Fiesta, and a Modern vegan, gluten-free menu. While Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for family, Friendsgiving gives us an opportunity to be thankful for friends. Whether you want to catch up before the holiday craze, throw a rager with old college buddies, or just get together with those closest to you, this practical and essential handbook will provide you with the tools you need to start an annual Friendsgiving tradition.

Thank you for the card Lynn!!! BFC was a great idea and has given me a lot.

Thank you Rachel! What a wonderful surprise! It's 94 days until the next #readingretreat 😁 I'm looking forward to it too.
Can I open the present today or should I wait for Christmas Day?

This is what it looks like when friends get you and give you one of the best early Christmas presents.

I am honestly happy about this gift and I laughed until I had tears in my eyes when my friend gave them to me.

What a lovely surprise today!! Thanks so much, Helen, for the gorgeous Christmas card of your hometown in all its snowy wonder!! Also much thanks for the adorable #LitsyLove stickers...I‘m already making use of them as you can see! 😂😘

You asked about snow in Alabama in your card. We actually had about 1/2” overnight, but it has since disappeared with the ☀️. It is fairly rare here so we treasure it when it visits us. 😊☃️❤️

Oh look what came today! Thank you so much lovely Lynn. I know life has been crazy for you this fall and I‘m so honoured to have been in your thoughts. The print is gorgeous ..... I‘m opening the rest after work ( I know - extreme patience required!) Thanks sweet friend 😘

wanderinglynn I‘m so happy it *finally* arrived! 😘🎁 I had almost given up hope. I mailed it on Dec. 17 & thought it might arrive a day or two after Christmas (U.S. post office said 6-10 days). I didn‘t expect it to take over 3 weeks! It sat at Heathrow (probably with Customs) from the 23rd until Jan 3rd. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Next year I know to mail it at Thanksgiving! 😂 Or better yet, just deliver it in person! ✈️ 13mo
