Have you checked the calendar lately? We blinked and suddenly found ourselves with less than one week left until Thanksgiving! If you, too, feel blindsided, check out some of the quick tips and easy recipes we shared with Huffington Post for staying calm and organized this holiday season, all with a high priority on fun in mind!

Somehow, the holidays have once again snuck up on us. For a season marked by indulgence and excess, it's easy to get carried away and feel overwhelmed.
