Yeah – I know. It’s December 10. Better late than never, right? Here’s the best from HTP in November 2011:
Packed with Puns: In the Oven, our corny but sweet baby announcement. Also – most commented on post, ever! Thank you so much for the well-wishes. It meant a lot to us.
Most Helpful: How to Open a Pomegranate (Without Ruining Your Shirt). If you’ve ever opened a pomegranate, you know how messy it can be! However, there’s a little trick that makes the entire process much more pleasant. Runner-up: Freezing Brown Rice 101
Most Emotional: All the Baby Details. I really loved sharing the clips of the video of breaking the news to the Husband. Whenever I am sad, I re-watch that video and smile so big!
Post that Encourages Online Shopping: My Favorite Things 2011. A complete list of my favorite holiday gifts, including a metal display, an indoor bike trainer, and a few great books.
Tastiest Recipe: Breakfast Scramble Quiche. I forgot all about this recipe! I need to make it again ASAP – it’s so tasty and perfect for chilly winter mornings.
Most Versatile: The Magic Soap. Describes many handy uses for Dr. Bronner’s, an all-natural soap.
Best for Balance: I Need a Training Plan, which introduces the idea of a ‘blank’ training plan – awesome for anyone who needs a lot of motivation but minimal pressure.
