Coconut Cranberry Scones with Lemon Curd

20 Nov

Thanksgiving is my favorite American holiday and I don’t think you need to guess why…it’s all about the FOOD! I love that I could fill my plate to the edges and still have to go back for seconds, or even thirds, to try everything on the table. Little hot dogs wrapped in puff pastry, stuffed mushrooms, duck, turkey, stuffing, sweet potato pie, green been casserole, cranberry sauce, and so many other tasty dishes! And let’s not forget dessert; all sorts of pies like pumpkin, pecan and apple and lots of cookies and pastries. Yum! Last year, I hosted Thanksgiving for around 30 people and had the time of my life cooking and baking for days on end. Since I won’t be hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, I figured I could still make at least one dessert to bring as a gift to my host’s. How could I NOT cook on such a special holiday, right?!? These Coconut Cranberry Scones will make the perfect gift and the lemon curd, served right along side the scones, will surprise everyone with its sweet and tart flavor.  Continue reading

Raspberry Plum Thanksgiving Duck

14 Nov

When most people hear the word “Thanksgiving”, they probably think about pumpkin, stuffing, pecan pie, and, of course, turkey. When I hear “Thanksgiving”, I immediately think of duck! Sure, my Auntie Ellen’s stuffing was epic, my Dad’s cranberry sauce was tart, and there was always a succulent roast turkey on the table, but when I picture the festive Thanksgiving table of my childhood, I see my Grandmother’s mouth-watering sweet and sour duck. With its crispy skin, tender flesh and sweet orange flavor, that duck was our centerpiece on Thanksgiving and I’ve tried to continue the tradition at my own families table.  Continue reading

Creamed Corn and Crab Pumpkin Soup

17 Oct

Sometimes, a delicious and unique recipe only needs a few simple and healthy ingredients. In this case, all of the items came right out of my pantry and freezer and I’ll bet you have similar inspiration in your own kitchen! While I do love to use fresh ingredients, sometimes I just need to open some cans and combine in a pot. This was one of those days! I took the red-eye from Seattle to New York with my husband and 2 children and while they slept the whole way, my chair wouldn’t recline so I was stuck with Zach’s legs in my lap and some very rude people in front of me talking loudly for 4.5 hours straight. Oh man, I could talk about that flight forever, but I would rather tell you all about the soup instead.  Continue reading

The Diner Thanksgiving Sandwich

25 Jan

I know it’s not Thanksgiving anymore but, to be honest, I could eat Thanksgiving dinner all year round! I certainly don’t need the turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce leftovers in my fridge for my taste buds to crave those delectable goodies. All it really takes is a rerun of Diners, Drive Ins and Dives on the Food Network. I watch a lot of unique, i.e. crazy, food being  cooked on this show, but one sandwich caught my eye and I just had to try making it in my own kitchen…a classic Thanksgiving Sandwich! I already had most of the ingredients in my house and it just seemed so simple and strange. Right up my alley!
