Setting the Table for Thanksgiving

I love the excitement that begins to fill the house as we get ready to host and cook for the best meal of the year.  It's our turn to host Thanksgiving this year.  My husband helped expand our table over a week ago to fit everyone comfortably.  We have an extra table in our storage room that we bring up for family gatherings.   I ironed the tablecloths last week and today is the day that I get to set the table.  Here are a few ideas I found from blogging friends that have given me great inspiration...

Thanksgiving Desserts

Last week I shared a post of delicious Thanksgiving Side Dishes.  This week it's all about desserts! I always try to serve our main meal around 2:00 and then dessert around 5:00...just when we're getting hungry.  My favorite dessert for Thanksgiving is pumpkin pie, but pecan pie comes in a close second. My mom always makes the apple and pumpkin pies while my sister makes the pecan pie. This year I'm going to add a new dessert to our tradition and make Cheesecake with Caramel Apple Topping.

Here is a great collection of desserts that would be perfect for 
Thanksgiving Day for your family and friends.

How to Roast a Turkey...Kitchen Tip

Today for our Kitchen Tip we're going to talk Turkey.  Thanksgiving is next week and things are slowly coming together in our house.  It's our turn to host and I'm very excited.  It's my favorite holiday and I really do enjoy cooking and all the other work that's involved.  AND this year my Colonel is home!  Last year he was stationed in Afghanistan.  Roasting a turkey should be the easiest thing to prepare on your menu.
