Happy Thanksgiving!

We've had a great few days celebrating Thanksgiving with my family in town. Will especially loves having his Meme and Aunt B here to give him LOTS of attention!

Mom got in Tuesday night and we immediately went to work baking. We made peanut butter cookies and pumpkin bread! We used Pamela's gluten free baking and pancake mix to make the pumpkin bread, and it turned out fantastic! I was kind of shocked at how good it turned out. And then this morning we made pumpkin pancakes, again with Pamela's mix...


We made my cousin Sarah's apple cranberry brie for an appetizer. It's awesome. Here is the recipe:

Caramel Apple Baked Brie
1 T butter
1/2 cup chopped and peeled apple
1/4 cup craisens
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 T chopped pecans
2 T apple juice
8 oz brie

Melt butter over low, and add apple, craisens, sugar, pecans, and juice. Cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Cut brie in half horizontally and put on a 9 inch pie plate. Spoon half of mixture over the top. Top with the other half of brie and top with remaining sauce. Secure with 3 toothpicks and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Serve with bread, crackers, or apple slices.

Matt's turkey turned out amazing! This was the first Thanksgiving Matt and I have hosted, and it was also our first gluten-free Thanksgiving. We had turkey, cornbread stuffing, acorn squash, brussels sprouts, cranberry relish, rolls from Rose's, and Mary Beth's strawberry pretzel salad. It was all so delicious.

Will enjoyed it too!
He begged for "more" from Aunt B
I made a pumpkin pie for desert. We got a gluten free pie crust from Whole Foods, which was really good.
