Yarnderwoman Podcast (video)
This wondeful podcast is hosted by Melinda who is Yarnderwoman on Ravelry.  I love listening to Melinda's Australian accent.  Melinda is easy to listen to and fun to watch.  If you're not one of the over 800 members watching her head over to YouTube or the Yarnderwoman Ravelry group and check her out.

BookishStitcher Podcast (video)
This awesome video podcast is hosted by Jeanette, who is BookishStitcher on Ravelry, whom I've met "in real life" at Knittin in the Mitten 2014.  Jeanette is just as fabulous in person as she is on her podcast.  Very well spoken this is another podcast that I love to watch.  Check her out on YouTube or you can also check out her Ravelry group.

JABAK Podcast (audio)
This is hosted by Heather, TopHat on Ravelry, and is podcasted from the Bay Area in California.  (My grandparents lived in Menlo Park, Ca and I loved visiting them frequently.)  I love hearing about Heathers knitting, her biking excursions and the different areas her and her family go.  It's like taking a tour of the Bay Area without having to get on a plane or even leave your house.

Cafe Menu
Fruit Pizza - Recipe found on All Recipes.  Sugar cookie crust, cream cheese spread with fruit on top.  This is now going to be a Christmas dessert every year.

Creamy Horseradish Dipping Sauce
(Think Tiger Dill Sauce from Outback Steakhouse)
All of these ingrediants are added to your preferred taste

Sour Cream
Dill (dried)
Garlic (minced)
fresh ground black pepper
Heavy Cream

Scoop some Sour Cream into serving dish and add Horseradish, Garlic, Dill and Pepper to taste.  Mix everything well.  Add some Heavy Cream to thin out the sauce.  You can refrigeratge or enjoy immediately.  This sauce goes really well with beef but can also be used for pork or poultry.

Drive Through
Gaylord Knitters every Thursday at the Biggby coffee shop in Gaylord, MI from 4 - 8 pm.  Come and knit (or crochet or spin) and sip as well as enjoy free wifi.  Open to both the fiber and non-fiber enthusiasts.

Cynthia's Too Open Knit
Saturday January 3, 2015 from 11 am - 3 pm at Cynthia's Too Yarn shop located at 320 East Mitchell Street Petoskey, MI.  This is free and open to anyone who would like to attend.
