Brooke is amazing and so easy to work with! I wanted to create an art room for my son, and even though I was leaving for vacation, she was able to see it throug...h to completion while I was away. She's smart and I am so grateful she can handle my projects so I have time to focus on more important areas! Thanks so much Brooke! See More

Attacking my basement had been on my To Do List for a long time. Initially it was a playroom for my kids, chock full of toys and games and books. It then became... home to all of the miscellaneous "stuff" that needed a home. The idea was to transform the space into a TV room/bar/workout area that everyone could enjoy. The problem was that I just didn't know how or where to begin. Every attempted start ended quickly and with little or no actual dent being made...Enter Brooke...organized, calm, cool, efficient...what we did in the first hour alone amazed me. Garbage. Recycle. Donate. Keep. We flew through it all. All together it took The Suburban Concierge 4 hours to help me purge, organize, let go and give back. My basement is practically empty. It's like a clean slate that I can't wait to decorate and enjoy! See More

Brooke was absolutely fantastic to work with. She ordered and wrapped my son's party favors and saved me a ton of time in the planning process. She was pleasant, quick and more than accommodating and I cannot wait to use her services again!!! Thanks Brooke!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving! So, what went right and what went wrong?
Take a moment to write down what you served, with a copy of the recipes and stick them in a folder for next year. For me, the Winter Sangria recipe I posted was a huge success. Roasted carrots? Maybe not a re-do for my crowd. Our biggest obstacle was that our oven would not start! FYI, unplug it and plug it back in before you panic...worked for us!

Remember Small Business Saturday! Help keep your money local!

“There’s a direct correlation between supporting local independent businesses and having your dollars recirculate to create a multiplier effect,”

The holiday season offers plenty of reminders about why it pays to shop locally. One of the most persuasive is the economic boost communities get from locally owned independent businesses.

Day 14! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope you are surrounded by laughter and great food and drink today.
You have done a lot of work at this point, go the extra mile and carve that beautiful bird the right way! Presentation makes a great impression and, quite frankly, will make you feel good.
So sharpen your knives and have some warm stock ready to drizzle over the top to keep that meat warm and juicy.
Enjoy! Thank you for following The Suburban Concierge's Thanksgiving series!

A few tips for tomorrow that I have found in the last 13 days:
1. Anyone who did not cook should be invited to clear the table and do the dishes.
2. Make it a device-free DAY.
3. Talk to the old folks. That will be us one day if we are lucky.
4. Send everyone home with leftovers.

Day 13! Unfortunately, many people don't enjoy cranberry sauce, or cranberry anything for that matter. (For the record, I love it!) If you are feeling guilty for using the canned stuff or not using cranberry at all, use this AWESOME recipe by Nigella Lawson on ribs or wings as your appetizer--or on Saturday when you are sick of leftovers!

Day 12! Here is an easy gravy recipe that I have used by Martha Stewart. Go ahead and make fun of me now, Jenn Lessieu!. She also have a variation with fresh herbs (Google Martha Stewart and Turkey Gravy with Fresh Herbs) that looks great.
***Tip: Make your gravy today or tomorrow. Great timesaver!
