Thanks Giving 2007


This year we moved away from our normal tradition of only pumpkin and apple pie. Even though Thanksgiving only comes once a year, it can get a little boring if everything is the same each time. This year we wanted something new, different, fun.

This is one of the lightest desserts I have ever had (which is nice after a heavy Thanksgiving meal) A shaped meringue filled with whipped cream and topped with a sweet and tart cranberry sauce.
The cranberry desserts come from Martha Stewart's Living magazine.

What's Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie? I needed at least one dessert that I could use this awesome GF crust recipe I found!

A sweet lemon ricotta blended till smooth and layered with another amazing cranberry sauce!When it is served in wine glasses it shows off the cool layers of ricotta and cranberries.

Every year my sister makes her out-of-this-world pumpkin roll! It's made of a pumpkin sheet cake slathered with cream cheese icing and rolled into a log! YUMM!!

I realize my blog is at a loss for recipes...

A few days ago I was asked to print some recipes off my blog, and realized that I don't have very many. I have lots of stories and stuff. I realized that all the recipes that I thought were on my blog were in fact in my notebook. So what I am going to do is test them and then post them so all you, my readers, can indulge in some NEW food ideas!! I will test the recipes as soon as possible and then post them for you! In the mean time feel free to email me your questions, comments, advice or requests! Your fellow blogger and friend, Dylan
