Hi Zesty readers!
My name is Amy and I write a health and fitness blog over at Amy’s Quest to Skinny. When Zesty asked for guest posts, I jumped at the chance as I have a fabulous recipe to share that will be perfect for my favorite holiday that is just around the corner: THANKSGIVING. (Well for us Canadians anyway!!)

Zesty Commentary

Thanks Amy for such a great post.  I am sure this will be a huge hit on dinner tables around the globe.  I am back in Canada and I will be home very shortly.  Once I arrive at the airport – I will be off directly to the building site.  Lots of updates are in order for next week.  Have a great weekend!

Along the same lines, here is another post on stuffed baked potatoes.

Take care
