Happy Thanksgiving

Lets be thankful for the creativity of cooks and chefs everywhere on this Thanksgiving day.  We are trying three new desserts today.


Brûléed Bourbon-Maple Pumpkin Pie



The appearance and ingredients got our attention. This chocolate and pumpkin mashup is surprising yet delicious. It’s so good that you don’t have to brûlée the top, though that effect surely makes the pie a showstopper. Can’t wait to get some of this pie.

You can find the recipe on Bon Appetit

One of the two recipes we are trying from Smitten Kitchen.  This just had all the ingredients that said yes, yes, yes.  The process for making the pie dough was different than any other method we had tried before but it worked.

Another decadent pie from Smitten Kitchen.  No it does not come with a gym membership.  Oats is a new twist on a pie so it will be interesting to see how the textures all blend together on this one.  The ingredients speak for themselves and are pure sweet bliss.

I hope your Thanksgiving is full of good food and good times.

    Hi Heather – My friend’s mother owned a small truck stop in Guelph in the 60s/70s. Her menu was a combination of family recipes and 3 Meals A Day (1949 edition). My friend and I are putting together a small recipe book/memory book, we will probably print about 200 copies for sale at local craft shows. In the historical “blurb” that I’m writing, I will be referencing 3 Meals A Day, and wanted to touch base with you to see if there are any problems/permissions/copyright issues we need to be aware of. We were planning on reproducing some pages of the tattered, torn and heavily annotated Jessie Read book for interest, as well as the recipe as Grace (who owned the diner) had prepared the dish.
