Cream cheesie corn by Glenn

I was given the chore of coming up with a new side dish for Thanksgiving. I like corn--particularly when I am eating. I like cream cheese--only when I am eating. Voila, an idea is born. It is easy to make and was rated OMG by my very picky family. There may be ways to improve it but here is an instant classic.

Grandma Koehler's Pumpkin Pie

Grandma Koehler's Pumpkin Pie by Glenn

Grandma Koehler preferred the long neck green stripe pumpkin (actually a gourd) for her pies. The result was that in addition to the unique taste the filling was stringy, much like spaghetti. If you are not that venturesome, any good pumpkin will work just fine with this recipe. It is not an easy recipe but it includes a number of…

Chocolate Truffle Tartlets

Chocolate Truffle Tartlets by Hina Gujral

Chocolate Truffle Tart is oh-so-decadent tart, made with chocolate and cream well worth the calorie splurge.

Bottom line, if you don't have an ingredient just leave it out or substitute something else. Have fun and be surprised, like I was, that this came out tasting…
