Just desserts

I was in charge of dessert for our Thanksgiving gathering so I made an apple crisp (a last-minute change as my pie crust did not turn out), Monica's award-winning pumpkin pie and this chocolate pie for my husband and other non-traditionalists. All delicious recipes!

Yesterday morning we had our first snowfall of the season. It was very light, and nothing stuck, but it still felt cozy. Today, I'll pack away the pumpkins and other fall decor and pull out my beloved Christmas and winter decorations! Have a wonderful weekend.

LOVE your new header - - corn on one side, beans on the other. =) Looks great!!

Your dessert recipes sound so yummy. Can you believe I've never made a chocolate pie? I made cheesecake and pumpkin pie for yesterday, and we'll have birthday cake for dessert tomorrow.

Glad you're getting an early start on your decorating. I wish someone would give me a shot of enthusiasm with regard to Christmas decorating. That's one thing I just don't enjoy too much.

I also made chocolate pie for the holiday. I ate way too much of it!!

Oh, that pumpkin pie recipe sounds great! I'll have to try it with the pie pumpkins I just received from our co-op.

And I echo the comments about the new header - did you take the photo?

Carrie- Hope you had a wonderful weekend and stayed warm! My mom always keeps me posted in the Iowa snowfall and weather. We've finally cooled down a lot here in Atlanta. We actually wore sweaters this weekend!

Yum! Carrie, your header is great and fitting to not only your blog, but life. Isn't it great that my little German village life touches yours in the cornfields and college town in Iowa.
