Thanksgiving Favorites

• 20 November 2009

































A few of my favorite things about Thanksgiving...and the holidays in general for that matter! Last year I posted about these recipes and ideas a little too late, so this year I've vowed to share this information in a more timely manner :) Beginning top left and moving clockwise:

1. Spiced Pumpkin Cheesecake - a more scrumptious autumnal cheesecake could not exist; a wonderful addition to any Thankgiving table.

2. Make your own Pumpkin Puree - forget Libbys and go for the real thing; it's super easy and something that's fun to do at least once!

3. Store-Bought Egg Nog Taste Test - we love Egg Nog around here, but it's difficult to find it done right...and done well...and at the grocery store. Hands down this is our favorite!

4. Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe - bye bye yams, hello carrot souffle! This is now a Thanksgiving staple on both sides of the family and if you've ever tried it, you'll know why. It's delish.

5. Packing Leftovers (not pictured) - this is such a simple, sweet and easy way to package leftovers for guests. Locally you can find these containers at Xpedx or online here.

We enjoyed the carrot souffle last Sunday with some friends. It was a huge hit, like a carrot custard! We will definitely make it again, maybe even with half the sugar;)

I have celiac (a wheat allergy) and found the recipe for the pumpkin cheesecake. It is a favorite and no one can tell I use gluten free gingersnaps for the crust!!
