How’s your Thanksgiving planning going?  Do you have the meal set?  Just looking for that knockout dessert?  Here are some fantastic ideas for you, including some which stay with the Thanksgivikkah theme.

I’ve been having a lot of fun this Fall making pies and galettes.  I had tried making a pie from scratch several years ago, but it turns out I’m a little pie impaired.  The crust wasn’t right, the rest of the pie seemed a little off, and most of my big effort went in the trash. After some remedial training from the nice people at Sur La Table, I’m back in action!  That being said, I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to try the amazing Sweet Potato Pie from Buzz Bakery.  Who knows, though – I still have a week to get my courage up.

Wishing you and yours the sweetest of Thanksgivings.  And join our Jewish friends with your own celebration of the Festival of Lights.  Enjoy!
