Double the Sweetness, Double the Fun!

Thanksgiving day is almost here and our pre-game wouldn’t be complete without a sweet ending! We’ve got a double whammy for ya, one dessert for the adults, and one for the little ones! Although, I REALLY enjoyed both and remember, sharing is caring. Homemade sweet potato pie is one of my favorite holiday desserts to…

Flipping the Bird!

You all were probably wondering when we would get to the turkey, it wouldn’t be a pre-Thanksgiving without one!  Well, here it is in all its glory.  Shiny, brown and full of flavor, a brined turkey is pretty amazing.  We love them because the flavors from the brine seep into the entire bird and are…

The Tale of Two Sides!

O Gratin! My Gratin!

We wanted to stick to a more traditional spread this week, while also experimenting and throwing in our…

Warm Pear and Goat Cheese Galette!

Hooray! We’ve made it to the final course of the first round of Turkey Day Pre-game! Never made or heard of a galette? Neither had I. Not to worry! It’s super simple, light, and loaded with warm pears, goat cheese and sweet spices. It’s a perfect end to a chaotic, but productive day of cooking and eating. If you…

Eat All the Sides!

We are about to conclude our non-traditional week!  Sorry for the delay, we had some cookery up our sleeves this weekend and our poor hands and minds were a bit too tired for posting!  But, with the weekend behind us, we are ready to keep on with the Thanksgiving craziness!  We went a little veggie/healthy…
