Have a safe Memorial day, all. If you’re not in the States, Memorial day is the day we honor those who’ve died serving our country. It’s also the day many visit the final resting places of loved ones, go to parades and have get togethers around the grill. Here, Memorial day is really the unofficial “official” start of summer.
Another pie? Why not!? Because
you can never have too much pie I already made my Fave Pumpkin Pie last week, and then a knockout Caramel Creme Pumpkin Pie. So for actual Thanksgiving? A Two-Layer Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie. The bottom layer is a lush cream cheese concoction & the top, a classic pumpkin pie layer. The best part of the pie, though, has to be the Dulce de Leche Whipped Cream that can be plopped or piped over the pie and a little drizzle of that caramelly Dulce de Leche topping. That Dulce de Leche whipped cream, though, literally stole the show.
This year I was looking for something a bit different to round out the Thanksgiving dessert table – and here it is. A two layer pumpkin pie, On the bottom, a rich caramel custard, and on the top a cinnamony pumpkin mousse. And it’s all topped off with an extravagant layer of toasted meringue.
We were in for a treat when my siblings visited this week. My sister and I found a recipe for Three Herb Chicken with Mushrooms in a little booklet called “Our Best Recipes” by Better Homes and Gardens. It was just kinda stuck into Pat’s (my Stepmom’s) recipe folder and who knows for how long.
I recently made the Stuffed Chicken Roast from Better Home & Garden’s December 2015 issue – I couldn’t help but be inspired by their Harvest Wild Rice Salad, served alongside. Gorgeous greens, wild rice and a citrus dressing caught my eye. Toss in a few apples, pears and toasted pecans and sprinkle on a few dried cranberries or cherries and you have a salad!
