“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed”
~ Maya Angelou
I was raised in a family where cooking for others is an act of giving that is equated with love. We were always reminded to be grateful for what we receive, and more importantly, who we are blessed to have in our lives and around our table. At our house Thanksgiving is a holiday meant to Share.Laugh.Eat.Repeat!
I hope you enjoy the Thanksgiving dessert recipes featured here. They are just a few of my favorites. They range in the amount of effort required. I’ve done this intentionally with the knowledge that while we all want beautiful desserts for our celebrations, we have varying amounts of time to spend in the kitchen. You can find more of my harvest recipes in the November 2018 issue of Southwest Metro Magazine in the article titled Empty Nesters Kitchen Lives Fully. Included are a skillet apple crisp + wine pairing suggestion, a festive cocktail from J.Carver Distillery in Waconia and my tempting recipe for pumpkin bread pudding (this one is also included here).
