Do you like the taste of garlic but don’t like to bite into pieces of garlic? By roasting the garlic you will get the subtle flavor of garlic with a creamy paste after the garlic has roasted in the oven and it’s so easy! I use this roasted garlic in my mashed potatoes for thanksgiving.
Do you have to make a turkey this Thanksgiving for your family and friends? Follow these easy steps to make a moist and delicious turkey every time! For this recipe I used a 10 pound turkey and it cooked for approximately 3-1/2 hours.
I have for you the most delicious homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream recipe. I bet you didn’t know that you could make your own Bailey’s?! This is the easiest, creamiest recipe to make. You will want to make a batch up to have in your refrigerator for the upcoming holiday season. This will keep in the fridge if sealed for up to 2 months.
1-1/2 cups light cream
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Irish whiskey (I used Jameson’s)
1 tsp instant coffee
3 Tbsp chocolate syrup
2 teaspoon vanilla
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and set on high for 30 seconds. Keep in a sealed container and refrigerate. Shake before serving.
I am a huge fan of Spinach pie or Spanikopita. If it is on a menu anytime we go out (not that we do that often) I have to order It. I decided to try and make an individual serving size that I could serve at our thanksgiving dinner. I like the idea of everyone having their own little dish of Spinach Pie. For this recipe I used Puff Pastry Shells which you can find in any grocery or mass market chain store in the freezer section.

I love caramel apples but totally hate the mess. Making the caramel apples with the caramel on the INSIDE makes for a much neater way to eat the delicious creation and it is super easy to make.
It is fall and time for soups and stews! My favorite time of year. There is nothing more comforting than sitting on the back deck with jeans and a sweater with a bowl of delicious hot, hearty soup and a glass of wine. Perfection! Here is one of my favorite recipes for Split Pea Soup with Ham. This would be perfect if you have a ham bone left over from Sunday dinner.
