Make Lauren Conrad’s DIY Friendsgiving Recipe Book

Turkey Day any day! “Since leftovers only last so long, we thought it’d be fun idea to take all the recipes we serve at Friendsgiving and put them together in a little recipe book,” says Lauren Conrad, Us Weekly‘s guest entertaining editor. (Watch the step-by-step tutorial video above.)

The first step is to start by gathering everyone’s recipes ahead of time. After that, it’s just printing and assembling the book. “You can pick whatever color or texture you want — maybe something that coordinates with your tablescape,” suggests the Celebrate author, 31. Decorations add flair to the cover and help personalize the take-away gift. Conrad kept it simple with sticker labels that matched her butcher paper tablecloth. “It could be a dried leaf or a stamp,” she adds.

Inside the book, she included recipes for her mom’s Thanksgiving dressing, which she actually prefers stuffed inside the bird, and her friend Kate’s southern green bean casserole, among other contributions.

As far as what people are bringing that day, resist the urge to overcoordinate. “The basics are sort of decided, so it’s really just variations,” says the new mom, who welcomed son Liam with husband William Tell in July. “Typically how I’ve done it is while inviting everyone and put them all on an email and say I’ll be providing the turkey along with a few side dishes, if anyone has a favorite they’d like to contribute, please let me know. Then it’s first come, first serve basis — people call dibs.”

If a friend has a special favorite or something they’re known for, Conrad will specifically request it. “And nobody’s upset with two different kinds of mashed potatoes,” she says. She also notes that if someone has dietary restrictions, “they usually provide at least one dish themselves that they can enjoy.” Celebrity News

Lauren Bushnell Shares Pic of New Boyfriend Devin Antin After Ben Higgins Split

Lauren Bushnell shared a pic of her new boyfriend, Devin Antin, on Instagram on Friday, August 4.

“Ok cutie,” the Bachelor alum wrote on the pic posted on her Instagram Story that showed Antin leading her by the hand.

Bushnell, who split with fiancé Ben Higgins in May, has been quiet about the new relationship but shared a telling quote on Instagram before posting the pic of Antin.

“You can’t always wait for the perfect time,” the quote read. “Sometimes, you have to dare to do it because life is too short to wonder what could have been.”

As a source previously told Us Weekly, the reality TV star and Antin “have been dating for a while now,” and the blonde beauty has already met his family. “She was at a Golden State game with his sisters,” the source told Us in mid-July.

The former flight attendant — who got engaged to Higgins on season 20 of The Bachelor in March 2016 — was also spotted with Antin, a real estate investor from L.A., in Maui earlier this week, according to TMZ.

But while Bushnell has quickly moved on from her broken engagement, her ex-fiancé doesn’t seem quite so ready.

Higgins, 29, revealed during the July 17 installment of his Ben and Ashley I. Almost Famous Podcast that he finds it difficult to even think about being intimate with someone new since he and Bushnell called it quits.

“If I were to kiss somebody right now in my life, it would hold a lot of weight,” the business analyst told his cohost, Ashley Iaconetti. “It would be really hard for me. Right now, for me to kiss anybody … my chest kind of gets tight. I know that’s really difficult for me.”
