Entertaining : Holidays : Thanksgiving

This is the pie my sister and I made... she did the crust and I did the filling. We followed Martha Stewart's recipe - was very good - it sat up nicely and did not run. (This photo is pre-oven) The pie took 75 minutes to bake - wow.

My sister, Jill, is rather crafty and made this wreath out of nuts. She had two of the wreaths hanging in front of mirrors in her dining room.

This is our turkey pre-roasting. I stuffed it with lemon, garlic, onion, thyme and sage. I'll have to track down a photo (Mom?) of the turkey post-roast... I was too busy drooling to take a photo.

Does anyone have any Thanksgiving photos to share?!

This is the turkey recipe I'll be following today... Martha Stewart's Turkey 101. This is the first year for me to be in charge of the turkey - I'll post later with photos of my own!

Entertaining | Recipes | Roasted Garlic & Goat Cheese Appetizer

On Halloween, we had some friends over for dinner, Monopoly, and help handing out candy.  We started our night with some roasted garlic, goat cheese with toasted french bread.  I also added a store bought roasted red pepper pesto to the platter for some festive orange color.   

1 large head of garlic

1/4 cup of olive oil

12 ounces of soft goat cheese

1 baguette, sliced

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut top 1/4 inch off heads of garlic to expose cloves. Place garlic in small baking dish. Add oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Turn garlic cut side up. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake until garlic skins are golden brown and cloves are tender, about 55 minutes. Cool. Squeeze garlic cloves from skins.  In an oven proof dish,   place goat cheese.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Searve with sliced baguettes.
