Sitting here at 11 p.m. trying to get all my recipes organized for the Thanksgiving bake-a-thon tomorrow in my very own kitchen. My sister is hosting Thanksgiving (thank you Christina!) but I'm bringing desserts and appetizers. Here's the plan:
By the way, all recipes will be adapted to be gluten-free since 6 out of 13 people present at Thanksgiving are currently gluten-free. Pie crust will be made using this recipe -- my favorite one!
Pear Cranberry Pie I'm going to use the recipe for this crisp and modify it to go into a pie crust. Haven't decided on a streusel topping or pastry top.
Cranberry Blueberry Pie I love this pie and have made it for two Thanksgivings so far. It fits the bill for a berry pie and also makes things festive with the cranberries.
Southern Living's Chocolate Pecan Chess Pie. Oh, I do love Southern Living magazine for recipes, especially their November and December issues.
Southern Living's Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake. Can't decide about the topping -- I'm thinking no caramel sauce on top, but maybe I will put the candied pecans.
Something along the lines of these baked olives (I'll be adding some garlic).
Cranberry Ginger sauce on top of baked Brie.
Lovella (via Pinterest) pointed me to this perfect veggie tray!!! I can't wait to make it. You can find it here.
Planning to make this sweet potato cranberry streusel, Chicken and Ham Pie (reinvented with turkey), for other meals this holiday.
I hope you are having fun in the kitchen!!!
