The biggest meal of the year is just around the corner. I don’t know how it shakes down at your house, but with all the “once-a-year” kind of recipes that we serve on Thanksgiving, it can be a pretty big to do around here.

And, while I’ve been trying to cut our sweets, you must know that we are a Dessert Family. Every night one child or another will inquire about dessert. It’s just what we do. Sometimes dessert is a grand affair; sometimes it is a piece of buttered toast and honey masquerading as a dessert.

    I would pick the Mixed Berry Pie, Pretzel Berry Dessert, and Streusel Topped Pumpkin Custard

    This year I am making Pecan Pie, Pecan Candy, Chocolate Mousse, and Sweet Potato Crunch

    I think I would like to try one of everyone’s desserts, but lean towards pies of all kinds too!
    Cheers! Joanne
