Thanksgiving 2013

Hey guys! Well I hope you all are doing well after a night of feasting. I think the tryptophan in the turkey is still working on me, I am about as tired and lazy as they come today. We had such a great holiday though, and I thought I would share some of it with you. We have all of our family gatherings at my mother's house. I live about an hour and a half away from my family and I never get to see them as often as I'd like to. It was so nice preparing food for them to enjoy, and then spending the evening together.

I spent the first half of my day in the kitchen baking. I love to cook, but I don't really bake all that often. I decided to make 2 desserts and 1 side: Pumpkin Cheesecake with Sour Cream Topping, Caramel Pecan Apple Pie, and Baked Ziti. As far as the Baked Ziti goes, I wanted to bring a side that was a little different. Something aside from the usual turkey/dressing/sweet potatoes/etc. Luckily everything seemed to turn out great! Oh yeah, I also baked some Oatmeal Cranberry Walnut cookies (in a pack from the grocery store that you break apart and bake, not handmade).

Is it just me or do you prefer things be labeled so you know what they are??? My aunt thought it was just hilarious that I labeled everything I made....I think she was just jealous I thought of it and she didn't! Love you, Timber Sue!!! Hehe.

My sidekick in the kitchen. A constant companion.

On my way to my mom's. So excited!
