Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday – I love cooking and I love eating, so it really is the perfect day. For most items served on this wonderful November Thursday, I am all about the traditional dishes. I now make the stuffing for our family’s Thanksgiving because my mom kept trying to make weird ones with wild rice or apricots. While still good, those wacky varieties were just not the same as the classic cornbread stuffing that I love so much.
However when it comes to the desserts, I like experimenting and serving unique creations as well. I mean, there are so many fun choices of pie, why stick with the same ones every year? Sometimes that works out well – like the incredibly decadent Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie. And sometimes it just doesn’t work out so well – like last year’s Ginger Pumpkin Pie which no one was a fan of, and I was told this year I have to stick with Classic Pumpkin Pie, no alterations.
