It’s no wonder that everyone’s New Year resolution is to lose weight considering that one gorges themselves for a month straight starting with Thanksgiving through Christmas!
Of course, it’s quite hard to resist all of the wonderful foods this time of year especially all of the sweets and baked goods. Dancing in my head are pies, cakes, tarts, cookies and many other warm, feel good treats. One is not even safe at work. So without further ado, start the baking, grab the elastic waistband pants and let the feasting begin!Pecan Pumpkin Butter Pie with Butterscotch Cream
Frozen Pumpkin Mousse w/ Walnut Toffee Crunch“With no pastry crust to wrangle, these luscious parfaits of pumpkin mousse and cream are easier to make than pumpkin pie.”Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle“I am a huge fan of trifles, and this is so easy and so delicious. It has the right ingredients for the holidays to bring in all the warm fuzzies of past years.”
– Linda, Food NetworkPumpkin Cake w/ Caramel-Cream Cheese Frosting“In this fun variation on traditional pumpkin pie, pumpkin cake spiced
with ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves gets frosted with a slightly
tangy, super-caramelly frosting. It’s delicious served cold or at room
temperature.”Olive Oil & Sauternes Cake w/ Roasted Pears
“Because Neil Perry has a passion for wine, he uses Sauternes in every
component of this dessert, from the cake to the sauce. He also adds
olive oil to the batter, which creates a delightfully moist crumb. Pair w/ Riesling.
