These are simply stunning. If I could make jewelry out of them I would. Seriously! Wait until you see what they look like in person. Cranberries that are cooked are just about the perfect Christmas Red in existence!
The older I get the more I think that the pairing of dark chocolate and mint are a way of life! I remember getting my dad a pack of Andes mints every Christmas. Now, I find myself checking out at the grocery store and seeing them in the conveyor belt. They seem to just jump into my cart!
I got 2 persimmons and was dying to use them. I did a little research on them (aka google) and found that there are 2 types. One is a french and the other japenese. The french kind you eat when it is soft and super ripe. The other commonly Fuyu is eaten firm. This is what the Boston School of Cooking said:
I was looking for a fun potato recipe, when I stumbled on a recipe called Mayflower Potatoes! What is more Thanksgiving than the Mayflower?!! We tried it. I have no idea why that is the name other than the fact that the half of potato could look like a boat? Em.
I myself am not a big fan of pumpkin pie, but I know many who are, so I thought it would be fun to check out the “old-school” way of the pie. Do you buy your pie? Really? Come on and try making it this year! Your loved ones will be so glad you did.
What would Thanksgiving be without an appetizer? Ok, I’ll admit that just snacking on the food is an appetizer to me, but I decided to help you more formal folks. I found a great recipe for stuffed mushrooms. I served these at a recent pot luck and got rave reviews! I have never had a stuffed mushroom quite like this but they were good!
