  1. Thanksgiving will be here before you know it; you are right, it is never too early to start planning you menu. That is what I am doing. I really enjoyed looking at all of the recipes for desserts on your post. Dessert is the best part of any meal...especially Thanksgiving! I am going to try the pumpkin pie recipe; it seems awfully easy to make. I am always on the hunt for dessert recipes that are easy to make and of course, delicious. I work with Better; if you are in search for the same, check out their Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes

  2. Woof! Woof! Golden Thanks for following my blog. My mom LOVES to cook n bake. These are great recipes for the holiday. Will definitely follow your blog. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
