Pumpkin Roll

 Have I ever told you I love pumpkin?  Anything pumpkin.  Pies, cakes, cookies, you name it.  One of my particular pumpkin faves is this delightful little pumpkin roll.  It is easier than you think to make it, and the end result is SO good.

Santa Rosa Chicken Salad

This salad is my new all-time favorite salad.  My friend served it at book club and I couldn't get it out of my mind.  I have asked her for the recipe at least three times; so I'm finally putting it on my blog.  I could eat it every day of the week and want more.  It's so good I didn't even get a picture of the final dish.   (I have a hard time calling it a salad because it has no lettuce in it)  You'll have to trust me on this one.  Magnifique'!
Gather the following items:  Uncle Ben's Wild Rice, green onions, red bell pepper, Chinese pea pods, avocados and pecans.  The recipe calls for chicken breast too.  I have made it with and without.  Both are delicious.

Pumpkin Pie

I love pumpkin pie.  No, I really love it...to me it is the pinnacle of Thanksgiving Dinner. I can't wait until the leaves change and the fall crisp-ness is in the air so I can start cooking with pumpkin.  But let's face it...some pumpkin pies are WAY better than others.  I found a recipe that is my favorite.  Guess what?  It's the recipe on the back of the Libby's canned pumpkin can.

Chocolate Cream Pie

Once upon a time, I was preparing my first Thanksgiving meal and I had no idea where to order my pies.  My husband and I were living in Texas and we were having guests for Thanksgiving, so I wanted everything to be perfect.  I asked my new friends where they ordered their pies.   I guess ordering pies for Thanksgiving is not the Southern way of doing things because the night before the big feast, my friend brought over 3 made-from-scratch pies that were to die for.  Since then, I have always made homemade pies for Thanksgiving.
And we all lived happily ever after.  The End.

Halloween Party

It's that time again.  The second year my friend and her husband have hired me to throw a Halloween Customer Appreciation party for their company.  It is a blast to do and they are so, so fun to work with.  They hang black visqueen on all of the walls in their warehouse so it is the perfect canvas for a "thrilling" night.  This year we are working on a few fun additions.  A mechanical bull, DJ, drawings for amazing prizes, dinner, treat bar, and a little football. Take a look at the blast we had.

My Family.  This year we went as a little of everything.  A burglar, rock star, scarecrow, shadow and a mummy.  Let the fun begin.

Refreshing Lemonade

 This is my son.  He's is an artist.  He likes to take common objects and create a perfect masterpiece.  He wanted to make lemonade... not the powdery fake stuff but freshly squeezed, refreshing lemonade.
