Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Feast! Enjoy eating your leftovers and getting creative for ways to reuse turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and those leftover veggies. I am thinking of concocting some sort of Turkey BBQ with shredded turkey heated up in a slathering of barbecue sauce served over mashed potatoes... mmmm....

I made this Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe from Martha Stewart for dessert-- it was a big hit! Try it for yourself: Pumpkin Cheesecake

I also made Colicchio & Sons version of the Parker House Roll which after a bit of stress over non-foaming yeast which took three tries to get right-- the rolls ended up coming out so delicious even my picky sister loved them! The recipe is very easy and requires very few ingredients BUT allow plenty of time for the dough to rise, about 4 total hours. 
The recipe was featured in the November issue of Saveur Magazine, get the recipe here: Colicchio & Sons Parker House Rolls

Have a great Holiday Weekend!
