Halloween's over...Time for Thanksgiving!

So the Halloween festivities are now over and done with...time to throw away those rotting pumpkins, finish off that stale candy corn, and get ready for Thanksgiving! So besides the fact that we all get to go home for a long weekend and get a mini-break from studying, the best part of "Turkey Day", is of course the Turkey! Food is what makes the world go 'round...(or is that money...) and so I thought I'd share with you a few recipes to make this year the best Thanksgiving ever!

I'm assuming you'll probably leave the turkey cooking to your parents and I'm sure they don't trust you with an electric carving knife...so let's focus on dessert. A really simple dessert that you can make and impress all of your guests with is easy pumpkin cream pie. It's so delicious and barely takes any time to make, even if you've never baked a thing in your life. The following link is from Cooks.com and contains the ingredients and directions to easily make a scrumptious pumpkin cream pie: http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1737,149188-245200,00.html

Looks easy enough, right? I highly recommend trying the recipe out, you'll definitely impress you parents. They'll ask, "where did you learn to bake a pie!" and you can respond "in my business information technology class, of course!"...ok so maybe you don't want to say that because they might re-think all of the tuition money they're paying...

If you're a bit more of an expert when it comes to baking you might want to try baking a homemade berry pie. Here's a very helpful video that leads you step by step through the process of making the crust, creating the berry mixture, and how to serve this mouth-watering creation:

If all goes well, your final masterpiece should look something like this:

Well I hope I inspired you to try out some of these fun recipes for Thanksgiving this year. You'll impress your family and friends and better yet, you'll have a delicious pie to eat for dessert! Just imagine, this could be you:

Happy Baking,
