I am so happy that I am not cooking a huge meal today, (cook like a champion today, for those of you that are). My husband and I are headed to Thanksgiving dinner at his parents’ house.
My mother-in-law has her menu set. So, it makes it kind of hard to contribute something to the meal. I figured I would use this day to give some attention to the somewhat neglected courses: appetizers and dessert.
The first two ideas that popped in to my mind were from other food blogs.
For my appetizer, I am making Cranberry Salsa from the How Sweet It Is blog. I love this recipe because it allows you noshing and mingling time before the main event without filling you up.
For dessert, my Everest, a homemade cheesecake. This was my first attempt at cheesecake. As you all know, I am not a very confident baker, so having the fate of dessert in my hands is kind of scary. Luckily, it was a success. Joy the Baker’s Salted Caramel Cheesecake was so easy to make that I have no worries about this being a huge hit at dinner tonight.
I just want to take a moment and express my deepest thanks to all of you, friends, family, and fellow foodies who read this blog everyday. I am so happy and thankful to be able to share my passion and dumb stories with you all. From the bottom of my heart, thank you! I wish you all and your families nothing but happiness and gratitude on this Thanksgiving Day!

    This cheesecake is BY FAR one of the BEST desserts I’ve EVER had! Seriously, it was AMAZING! I brought it with to a Christmas party in Bloomington and everyone was humming while they ate it. Nothing but compliments all around… even from some guests who said they don’t like cheesecake! Well done Stefanie, well done!! :)
