We all know it is Election Day, and if you don't, well...we may have other issues to discuss.
Sure, I have a lot of opinions about the current state of our economy, foreign policy and rights, but, I'm not going to dive into those. What I will say, for now, is whoever wins needs to be diligently prayed for, as they have a job on their hands that most of us think we know everything about and yet we know very little. This last Sunday, I visited a new church and the Pastor spoke a lot about the election and respect. His challenge, among other things, was to pray for the candidates as much as we talk about them.

Now, since we are all on election over-load, I thought I'd steer us away from the political talk which tends to bring angst, frustration and, let's face it, sometimes complete ignorance. I'm sure we're all a bit tired out.

Instead, let's talk about something that makes everyone happy, shall we: FOOD.
It's the sure fire way to anyone's heart. I've been a cooking machine lately (I'll tell you why later this week), so I have recipes on the brain.
Thanksgiving is a few weeks away and I've been scouring the web attempting to find some desserts to bring to the parties. I've narrowed it down to four. Who wants to make them, taste test them and then tell me which is best :)

   Pumpkin- Cheesecake Truffle                                                  Mini- Pumpkin Pies

Pumpkin French Toast                                                 Mini Caramel Pumpkin Bites

See, don't you already feel a bit calmer and happier already?
Now, if you are really adamant about staying on the Election Train today...


  1. I would love to make these with you because pumpkin is one of my favorite ingredients in dessert, but I also know myself too well and I would need a serious intervention to recover! If I had to vote, I would say the pumpkin french toast for breakfast thanksgiving and for dessert pumpkin cheesecake truffles. Oh my, I love pumpkin.

  2. I love pumpkin too! I always want to make every dessert possible that includes pumpkin this time of year! Then I have 10 months to recover from pumpkin overload ;)
