Weekend links

…as is usually the case this time of year, we’ll be reheating some delicious blog post leftovers for the next week or so, so that we can enjoy the holiday season with our families. They’ll be yummy, I promise. Thank you so much for your loyalty here at AoS, and we look forward to preparing for the new year with you soon!

May the week of Christmas be full of simple pleasures for you, however you celebrate the season.
