Thanksgiving Baking & Forgetting Rule #2

Thanksgiving Baking & Forgetting Rule #2

I’m totally laughing at myself right now, so I just HAD to come over here and leave a quick note!  Remember those basic rules of cooking that my mom taught me?  Yep.  I just went and totally blew #2: read the recipe all the way through BEFORE you begin!


I’m making Southern Living’s Ambrosia Pudding Pie for Thanksgiving.  My pumpkin pies are already baked and cooling on a rack, so I started in on the ambrosia pudding pie.  First step:  make lemon curd.  COOL!  I’ve never made that before!  I work through those steps and then read, “Chill for 4 hours or up to 3 days.”  WHOOPSIE!  Thankfully I have plenty of time this afternoon, so it’s all good, but this could have been quite the tragedy!

I’ll just let the curd cool whilst I move on to making Texas Sheet Cake Cookies.  I won’t make them too big this time.



If you still need a quick, delicious pumpkin pie recipe, I shared Grandma’s recipe here!



Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  Let’s count our blessings whilst we prep for this great holiday!

  1. Keeping it real and simple this year – 2 loaves of french bread for dressing, apple cobbler and (of course) sweet potato casserole (my kids would skewer me if I forgot that one!) – not to mention the poor turkey. Like I said – real and simple! Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂

    1. Sounds lovely! (I’m a cornbread dressing girl, but who am I to argue with homemade French bread!) Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Yum yum and more yum! Thanks so much for sharing! I missed your blog that mentioned the Texas Sheet Cake cookies before. My goodness they look AH-mazing!!! How have I never heard of?!

    1. You’re welcome, Jen! Thanks for stopping by! Texas Sheet Cake cookies are new to me too, and BOY are they yummy! Give them a try, and let me know what you think! Any special food treats on your table tomorrow?
