I know it's been ages since I've utilized my own kitchen for something other that a 5 min meal. Between feeling under the weather, vacations, social life and a just plain busy schedule, I have found little time and lack of motivation. As a result, I do apologize that I haven't had much to report.
But guess what - that's all about to change! With the holidays staring me straight in the face, I'm getting back into the swing of things - how could I not? Thanksgiving was definitely the spark that I needed to get me back into my kitchen. As you might have noticed from one of my previous posts, A Holiday Made for Me, Thanksgiving holds a soft spot in my heart. Besides making the standard Thanksgiving staples, I got back into the sweets.
Pumpkin Pie [11.25.2010]
This years pumpkin pie has the same butternut squash filling as last years, however, it is baked in a classic French tart mold. It's topped again with brown sugar creme fraiche (why mess with a good thing?) and the twist, homemade squash chips - fried and tossed in cinnamon sugar. Even dad loved it - and he's the harshest critic of them ALL!
Hope everyone had a tasty Thanksgiving!
