It’s that time of year. The hard work of local Farmers all spring and summer, have paved the way to a bountiful crop of delicious, fresh, Canadian foods. Now that the work is done, its time to gather our friends and family close and celebrate a plentiful season. This weekend, many of you will travel near and far to celebrate Thanksgiving with your family and friends. In my family, my Mom use to cook a huge Thanksgiving meal every year. My sisters and myself would return home from school, jobs and homes of our own, to celebrate the love we hold for each other. A few years ago, my sister and I decided that it was time to give mom a break and cook this delicious meal ourselves. We rotate back and forth to who’s turn it is to cook the golden bird. This year it’s mine (cough, cough, I mean DH’s)!
I remember a few years back, DH was basting a beautiful turkey and I was preparing a lip smacking dessert. When we both turned to the single oven at the same time, I realized we had a problem. How were we going to cook the turkey and pie at the same time? We ended up cooking the bird first, then having a late, late dessert. This year, I want to be more prepared. I know pumpkin cheesecake is always a big hit in my family, so I searched the internet for a non bake cheesecake recipe. What I came up with amazing!
