The Wedding Thank You Card Myth

Every year, I have the same conversation with friends about etiquette around the appropriate time frame for wedding thank you cards, so I am setting the record straight.  According to etiquette guru Emily Post, newlyweds do not have one year to send out thank you cards.  A bride and groom should send a thank you card upon receipt of the gift or shortly there after.  However, a guest has one year from the date of the wedding to give a couple their wedding gift. Although, I always recommend buying from the registry well in advance for optimal selection.

Addictive No-Knead Bread

The idea of making my own bread was far too daunting of a task until I came across this excellent recipe in Edible Vancouver Magazine. I made a loaf this past weekend for guests coming over and it was so delicious, I started another loaf the next morning. Trust me when I say this is one easy no-knead bread that will be met by rave reviews. Enjoy warm with a bit of butter.
