Tabletop Tuesdays:
A Trio of Desserts

How can you resist??
Pumpkin cheesecake
Maple Cream Pie with gluten free crust
Cranberry Raisin Pie

What I love about this arrangement is the desserts are three different heights so it adds interest to what everyone already knows will be a sweet sensory overload. It also begs the question are they in height order of deliciousness? Only my Thanksgiving guests know the answer. But, really, isn't it a matter of taste?

Thanksgiving Themed

What can I say, I am a sucker for cute and sometimes borderline tacky table accoutrement!! These suit my fancy and are fun for a day or two to set the stage for the real tabletop decor - the FOOD!!

How many times have you lifted a pot lid to peak or check on the progress of your dish to find you've scorched your fingers?  Granted some of the All-Clad pots now have heat-resistant lid and pot handles, but many don't.

Two wine corks - how simple!!  Love you Mom grin
