I just made my first ever pecan pies!! They are in the oven and they smell heavenly! Next up... making the double batch of cranberry sauce. Double batch because college-living brother wants some to take back to campus... It's the yummiest and super easy... chopped up cranberries, cranberry jelly stuff, orange marmalade, chopped walnuts... so tangy, so sweet... I'm in charge of appetizers and desserts this year. Dessert is the aforementioned pecan pies and I will make a Pumpkin Cake with Apple Cider Glaze at my mom's house tomorrow. Also doing a Tastefully Simple Key Lime Cheeseball and a Red Raspberry Cheeseball (served with graham crackers). Appetizers... an assortment of cheeses, dips, crackers, veggies. And sweet gherkins. It just seemed right. Back to the kitchen for me!
