A big part of the Thanksgiving meal is dinner rolls.  These crescents are great as they are easy to do, and you can make them ahead of the event.  They are also pumpkin and very festive!  You can make these rolls a month in advance and freeze.  It saves a lot of time during the holidays, and you get homemade rolls rather than store-bought with your meal.

These pumpkin dinner crescents are absolutely fantastic!  Whenever I serve these to guests, they cannot say enough good things about them.  I got this wonderful recipe from the 2004 edition of the Betty Crocker: Holiday publication.  They are fun to make, and if you have never made homemade crescent rolls I encourage you to give these a try!  You will love the results.

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

As mentioned in the intro, you can prepare and bake these rolls in advance.  Place completely cooled rolls in gallon-sized freezer bags and freeze up to a month.  When ready to serve, place the roll filled freezer bags on the kitch...

The fourth Thursday of November is Thanksgiving.  I love this American holiday, because it is a time to pause in our busy lives and be thankful for what we have.  With any celebration, what makes it special is the friends and family that are there - sharing it with you.  The food, of course, is also an important tradition and aspect of the holiday.  It wouldn't be a proper Thanksgiving  without a pumpkin pie.  I decided to share my favorite pumpkin pie recipe with you.

This pie (to me) has the right amount of spice.  The four eggs make a nice custard filling too.  The brown sugar gives it a richness, and I always enjoy adding some whipped cream as a finishing touch.  I hope you give this delicious pumpkin custard pie a chance, and if you do, please let me know what you think of it!

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

The filling is made for a deep dish 9-inch pie.  If you do not have a 9-inch deep dish pie plate, don't worry!  I pour the extra filling in greased one-cup r...

Here is another fun Halloween recipe, adapted from an article in Good Housekeeping magazine, the October 2017 edition.  I made a slight change to the original recipe by adding fresh thyme, to enhance the pie's savory taste.  These roasted chicken pot pies are very tasty and easy to prepare too!  I think that the frozen puff pastry makes it especially simple.  The pumpkin and triangle cookie cutters also add an easy way to decorate for a fun Halloween meal.  Of course, you can skip the cookie cutters if you want to do this recipe on a regular day.  You just need to used a 3 1/2 inch biscuit cutter instead.  Either way, these pot pies are delicious!

Bon Appetit!

Autumn is here, and that means pumpkin!  These muffins are a real treat with your morning coffee.  They are loaded with fresh apples and flavored with pumpkin spice.  They also have a wonderful streusel topping that gives an added sweetness to these muffins.  This is a recipe that has been around in my collection for many years, so I have baked these muffins many times.  These pumpkin apple streusel muffins are a delight to eat, and I hope you and your family will enjoy!

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

When baking (unless otherwise noted) it's always good to rotate your baked goods halfway though the baking time.

Pumpkin lattes are one of the things I love about autumn.  American coffee lovers look forward to this seasonal treat each year.  I found this recipe in the September 26, 2016 issue of People magazine.  The recipe is by Jeni Brittan Bauer.  You can save some serious money by making these lattes at home as well as impress friends and family with your barista coffee house talent.  With the falling leaves and crisp autumn nip in the air, you now have a good excuse to indulge your sweet tooth with caramel pumpkin spice lattes.

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

If you live in a part of the world that does not have pumpkin flavored ice cream, you don't need to worry!  You can use a rich vanilla ice cream (or whatever you ice cream you think might work) and make your own pumpkin-pie spice by mixing the following spices together: 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves, and 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger.

Latte preparation time is 5 minutes.  Whip cream p...
