A STROLL DOWN THANKSGIVING MEMORY LANE

Wingfield Thanksgiving Dinner, 1956. Dad is carving the turkey. Mom is smiling, but exhausted (and by the way, cooked the turkey.) Please notice the 1950s version of the sippy cup and my cowgirl costume. Clearly something distracted me from looking at the camera but that would be classic Vera, right? Hope your day is filled with friends, family, and fabulous

  Sunday, May 15th is National Chocolate Chip Day, and we at VeryVera can’t pass up the opportunity to celebrate such a classic ingredient. There are certainly countless uses for chocolate chips, but I’m all for the old standby: chocolate. chip. cookies. I feel like everyone has a go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies, and mine is

With Week 3 of VeryVera Camp, we are officially at the halfway mark for 2016!
