We Have A Winner! And Some Thanksgiving Recipes

   Happy Thanksgiving week. For those of you eating at relatives.. I feel you, and watch your blood pressure! For those of you who are cooking at home, I salute you! I'm not going to be cooking this Thanksgiving as my parents decided that we're all going out to a restaurant this holiday. This is also the time of year when I'd be trawling the cooking magazines looking at friends' blogs, and perusing  my cookbooks searching for something interesting to put on this very traditional table. Over the years I've come up with a lot of good stuff, so In the spirit of wishful cooking I thought I'd pass along some recipes that we've loved.

Thanksgiving Recipes

Buttermilk Biscuits


Pumpkin Pie

Brussels Sprouts

Flourless Chocolate Cake, Gluten Free

Indonesian Spice Cake

Cinnamon Spice Cupcakes, Vegan

Baby Roast Potatoes In The Bag

Pear and Arugula Salad
Baked Samosas

Spinach and Corn

And Now For the Winner!

   I held a drawing this morning to give one person a chance to try some vegan palm shortening courtesy of the folks at Tropical Traditions  . They were nice enough to let me sample their product which arrived just in time as I was doing some cooking for a friend who was on a medically enforced vegan diet. Believe me, it really came in handy.

The winner drawn by is Monique!

   I really like this shortening and I hope you do too, I'll be sending our winner Monique an email and will get this shortening right out to her just in time for holiday baking. Thanks to everybody who entered and to those of you celebrating, have a great Thanksgiving week.

  Coming up next..a dip in the cocktail pool and we go goat again. Follow along on Twitter @kathygori


  1. Oh wow - what time is dinner. I am doing my menu planning today (I know, a little late) - could I make the spice cake in a normal cake pan??

  2. @Belinda@zomppa,
    I wish I were cooking! My parents want to go out so I'm just going to do a friends Thanksgiving on Saturday night..I don;t see why it can't be baked in a regular pan..I make bundt cake recipes in regular may need two pans however as it's a lot of batter. might be good with a cream cheese frosting..though I haven't tried that yet

  3. Oh those pictures just make my mouth water (especially the brussel sprouts....I know I'm weird).
    Sorry you won't be cooking, but I am sure you will have a very enjoyable time at the restaurant.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you.
