Bourbon Ginger Pecan Pie

Bourbon Ginger Pecan Pie

Bourbon. Ginger. Pecan. Pie. I’ll let that sink in for a hot minute. Anytime I can throw a drink into my desserts I’m all for it! Tis THE dessert season and I, just like everyone else, will be baking and whipping up a storm of treats. Although, I’m still not sure who came up with the idea to make all the sweet, delicious, irresistible things during party season where we’re expected to wear cute little party dresses. Must have been a guy who decided on that, or seriously skinny people. Both good contenders. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars with Whiskey Caramel Sauce

 

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars with Whiskey Caramel Sauce
If pumpkin pie and cheesecake went on a hot date, fell deeply deliciously madly in love and eventually had a baby they would name her Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars. How can that combination of deliciousness be a bad thing? It’s not. Not at all. It’s a very very good thing. One that I think you’re going to love. I didn’t even mention yet that it’s topped with pecans and a liberal dousing of whiskey caramel sauce. I know, you really didn’t need more motivation to make these but that should seal the deal.

Savory Baked Brie with Crispy Mushrooms

Savory Baked Brie with Crispy Mushrooms

Not all baked bries are sweet y’all. If you’ve never had a savory baked brie you’re in for a treat. This one is SENSATIONAL, if I do say so myself. I’ve made it no less than 4 times already this week. That should give you some idea of how obsessed I am with this recipe. I think it’s the perfect holiday appetizer for anything from Thanksgiving to New Years Eve or who am I kidding, just because you want some melty cheese goodness topped with a smattering of crispy mushrooms for lunch, brunch, dinner or snack time. Research people, the things I do for y’all.

Sausage Apple and Herb Stuffing

Sausage Apple and Herb StuffingThis post is sponsored by REAL® Seal.

We’re down to a week before Thanksgiving. I’m not sure where this year has gone. It’s Thanksgiving y’all. Insert slight panic attack. I’d like to re-wind to spring but we all know that can’t happen. SO I guess I’ll get myself pulled together and start prepping for Thanksgiving. We all know that the Turkey is the main man of the big bust your pants open day but I’m all about that stuffing y’all. True story. Carbs have my heart. Always will so I’m sharing a super simple but flavorful stuffing recipe as part of REAL® SEAL’s Virtual Thanksgiving Dinner Party. Each day this week a blogger will showcase a different course to this dinner party. Today it’s my day. I’m putting on my oven mitts, and pulling this Sausage, Apple and Herb Stuffing out of the oven.

Roasted Turkey Breast

Roasted Turkey Breast

Thanksgiving is in two weeks. TWO weeks. Is anyone freaking out about it yet? No? Just me? Tell me I’m not the only one. Let’s be honest, there’s a lot of pressure we put on ourselves when it comes to Thanksgiving. So many side dishes. So little time. So many pies and rolls (and the rolls that will come after from eating all said desserts). And then there’s the main event. The bird. Que the dramatic stress inducing music. If you’ve never cooked a full turkey that can be a potentially a daunting task. Although, not difficult, it is incredibly time consuming. Especially if you brine it beforehand.

Pumpkin Butter

Pumpkin Butter
I was recently introduced to Pumpkin Butter at a local coffee house and I might have embarrassed myself just a little (okay a lot, I’m going to be honest) over licking the small container clean. It was GOOD. Really really good. Up until now I was all about the apple butter, I still love it, but it’s not a distant second. Bring on the pumpkin, princess, and biscuits. Lots of biscuits. Besides just eating it with a spoon (which is totally acceptable by the way) I think the best way is on fresh, hot, homemade biscuits. I could be wrong, so I’ll continue to do the research for y’all. Because I’m a giver at heart. Truth. I love y’all.
