Sweet Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up

November 20, 2012

Can you believe we're just two days away from Thanksgiving? Time is such a slippery, shapeless entity. If it were palpable, I'd try to chase it down - although I'm sure it would elude my seeking eyes in some bustling airport near the equator. (I tend to lose important things in airports.)

If you're still scrabbling for dessert ideas, and you don't want to resort to anything store-bought, here are a few yummy suggestions to top off the gastronomic feast! Most are lavishly nontraditional -but I doubt anyone will complain about enjoying pumpkin cinnamon rolls for dessert, or a slice caramel layer cake instead of pumpkin pie. ;)

To all who celebrate, Have a scrumptiously Happy Thanksgiving! xo
