Today's roundup has a smorgasbord of treats to tempt you! I don't know of a way to celebrate the gathering of family and friends around a bountiful Thanksgiving table, without sharing a few favorite recipes.
On Thanksgiving Day, at least in the United States, there's going to be talk of football, the weather and food. I firmly believe that's there's no better recipe in the world than one that's been shared by a friend or family member.
My name is Monika Wright and I apologize right now for any weight gain that might occur during the testing of the recipes I'm about to share!
Here's another layout by Donna telling the story of the bounty received from one small sugar pumpkin. Click on the layout for it to open in a new window so that you can read the journaling.
Still having pumpkin cravings? Penne with Creamy Pumpkin Sauceis part of the fall dinner cycle at Donna's house. "It is really good topped with crispy bacon or pancetta. Also, I like to make the overall meal a little more hearty and serve it topped with sliced grilled or sauteed chicken breast," says Donna.
Another Jannuzzi family favorite, Pumpkin Bread Pudding,is not just the best pumpkin bread pudding she's ever had, but the best bread pudding she's ever had (she strongly dislikes eggy bread pudding --> me too Donna). Donna says that this pudding is very creamy, yet dense and not too eggy. The recipe is great as-is, but here's her tip - if you can find it, use a dense-ish Challah type bread.
These next few layouts are by yet another talented team member, Celeste Smith, who has captured the essence of Autumn perfectly.
Can't you just see your fave family recipe in one photo frame with the journaling detailing what it is that makes that recipe a family favorite in the other? Perfect.
Now that you have a ton of new recipes to try out and some layouts for inspiration, what else could I possibly contribute? I know, how about a recipe of my own and a 6x4 recipe card download?
