Happy Thanksgiving!


I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Sorry about the lack of recipes lately but I’m still in the states enjoying time with my family. I’ll be back in my own kitchen by the beginning of December so keep checking back!

If you still have a can of pumpkin left in your pantry, try making this yummy Pumpkin Roll! It’s basically a pumpkin sponge cake rolled up with sweetened cream cheese. The one in the photo was made by my friend Ruby and has some chopped pecans mixed in with the filling, which is an optional but recommended addition! There are tons of pumpkin roll recipes out there but Ruby recommends the basic Libby’s recipe found here.

    That looks totally yummy! I can almost smell it all the way from Saskatchewan.

  14. Sounds delicious and the photo is fantastic! Bravo!

    Who makes the plate your pumpkin roll is sitting on?

  15. I hope you had a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving! I know you returned to the US under sad circumstances, but I’m happy for you that you’re getting to spend so much time with your loved ones.

    This looks terrific–but I’m a sucker for anything pumpkin flavored.

    Hey Nicole,

    You and Ruby did an awesome job on this recipe and picture! I loved it. I plan to use it for the Christmas meal with the inlaws:)
    And…it was great having you home. We have all missed you a lot. And feeling a bit sad to know that we will not have the privilege of you up for a gathering or a very large meal at a restaurant in Kingsburg:) heehee…well for another year anyways. 🙂 Ok I should not get so sappy on your food website. WE WILL MISS YOU! Safe trip home this week.
    Love~Chris and Steph

    Your photos improve with each post I think. Any secret?
    I have a question not concerning food. I’m left the US to move to Switzerland, giving up the plan of getting a masters in Educ. I noticed on your profile that you are doing distance learning. would you mind if we chatted via email one time about that experience…how you chose school/find the program etc?

  23. Yum, what a lovely lovely looking-roll! Happy holidays to you!
