Vegetarian Yam Pie Recipe

I was inspired by the holiday season to make this savory pie. I made my own yam-flavored pie crust and filled it with French green lentils, red onions, crème fraîche and yams and topped it with smoked Cheddar cheese.

To ensure the yams were fully cooked, I twice-baked them. This all-the-way yam pie could be a great highlight to your holiday table.

Maple syrup is a staple breakfast item in our pantry. We usually use it as is to drizzle over pancakes and waffles, but since we had extra pecans for Thanksgiving, the girls and I prepared pecan squares flavored with our favorite syrup.

The topping is made of a mixture of maple syrup, of course, orange zest, brown sugar and loads of pecans. I usually bake these squares during the Christmas season.

Everything You Can Cook with Your Thanksgiving Leftovers

11.26.14 by Jackie

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I have to admit, even though our grocery shopping chores are done, I haven't started prepping anything just yet. The reason is that I still don't know how many guests are going to attend our feast. The list keeps growing by the hour! What I know for sure is we're going to have Thanksgiving leftovers on Friday. Sunny's college roommate, M. K., is going to be staying with us so I hope she'll have a good appetite for all the food I prepare for her! 

If--like us--you're about to cook for a large crowd and fear you're going to have a lot of leftovers and don't want to waste all the food, look no further! I’ve put together a list of my favorite recipes that you can use to cut into that mountain of mashed potatoes, stuffing and more.

According to a recent article I read in the news, the average American consumes about 4,500 calories during the Thanksgiving celebrations!! I don't think our family members will reach that calorie count but I know we will enjoy the festivities and one another's company.

Pumpkin Banana Cupcake Recipe

Little Aria asked to see one of her favorite classmates, Colin, on a playdate. Aria can be very detail-oriented and asked if we could prepare mini cupcakes for the occasion. To make the sweet treat a lot more playful for the children, I topped the cupcakes with icing and sugar cookie letters.

The cake part is made with mashed bananas and pumpkin and I used an alphabet cookie cutter set. Aria helped out all through the baking process and she loved it. Colin loved the cupcakes too, and I was amazed to see he knew his alphabet as well. Isn't it impressive at only the tender age of three? It was so precious to watch them have so much fun!

I'm planning to bake the same larger-version cupcakes on Thursday
