Baked Pumpkin-Cranberry Oatmeal Pudding

I was chatting over email with a friend the other day (seems to be the way so many of my chats go nowadays) about how we’re so busy, we sometimes buy stuff–stuff that we really intend to use, stuff that we actually really need–and then, because our schedules are packed tighter than Madison Avenue on […]

Plumberry Sauce (or Jam!), a New Favorite at Thanksgiving

I was chatting yesterday with some online buddies about Canadian-vs-American Thanksgiving (I’d say the tacit consensus was that Americans make more of a fuss about it) and I admitted that, in the home of my childhood, we never actually celebrated T-Day.  My memory about it is fuzzy (who am I kidding?  My memory about everything is fuzzy these […]

Reprise: Last Minute Thanksgiving Ideas

For those of you celebrating this weekend, Happy Thanksgiving!  I wasn’t going to post a list of Thanksgiving recipes this year since there are so many I wouldn’t be able to enjoy (never-ending ACD, and all)–but then I thought, why should the REST of you suffer starve miss out?
