Head on over and check some of these links out! I can't wait to try some of them myself!
Meanwhile, here are a couple more of my own favorites:
Cranberry Relish--not your usual cranberry sauce
Sweet Potato Souffle--not your typical marshmallow topping, this casserole is covered with a yummy pecan praline topping
Pumpkin Pie--completely traditional, with a made-from-scratch crust
And for something totally out of left field--how about this Navy Bean Pie--not only will no one be able to guess what's in it, they'll rave for the recipe, too--it not only tastes good, it smells out-of-this-world.
Until next time--good cooking, and good eating!

I can't believe it's already November--the countdown to the holidays has begun, and I don't know where the year has gone. One of my favorite holidays is coming up on us quickly--I am keeping my fingers crossed that my son and I will be able to join my husband in Colorado for Thanksgiving. If we do, I probably won't be doing a lot of cooking, since it'll be just the three of us, but I want to share some of my tried-and-true recipes that are great for Thanksgiving or any long, dark, fall or winter evening. It's quick and easy to make, as always, and tastes (and smells!) like the perfect fall dessert.
In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin, evaporated milk, sugar, eggs, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Pour into a greased or Pam-sprayed 9 x 13 pan.
Sprinkle the entire box of cake mix on top
Cover with chopped nuts
(I think I used more than 1 cup--I just eyeballed it until I thought it looked right--I like lots of nuts)
