What’s Thanksgiving without Turkey?

Well at least for me. EVERY year on Thanksgiving I base my meal AROUND the turkey. I eat tons of turkey + cranberry sauce and then whatever else I can have room for AFTER I get my 4-5 servings (at least) in of this delicious bird. I. LOVE. ROAST. TURKEY. My mom makes it amazing with scallions and all that stuffed inside. And the next day we always make turkey congee with the bones and shredded meat (I’ll get to that another time)  

My parents always throw a HUGE Thanksgiving party. It’s what we do.

I started Tuesday with my Pumpkin Gingersnap Tiramisu…

I made my custard with hemp milk and yummmie mascarpone!!!:D

Layers of YUMMY Ginger Snaps

I brushed on APPLE BRANDY (I used Apple Jack) on the cookies for a little kick…

Repeat 3x

More booze…

Sprinkle with crushed cookies on top and freeze :D

Wednesday night, I made my Shortbread Hazelnut Strudel CRANBERRY Bars!!!


The result:

Thursday came and in the afternoon I started preparing my appetizers… and helping my mommy cook…

Puff pastries with smoked salmon, horseradish topping and different toppings of red onion, capers and scallions…. 

Roasted Chestnuts

Mommy frying homemade spring rolls and shrimp rolls
