Thanksgiving is only a week away, so the elves in my kitchen are busily searching for recipes, collecting ingredients and creating some of the most delicious desserts, appetizers and side dishes you’ll ever taste. This year, Thanksgiving is being held at my Mother-in-laws house. She’ll cook the turkey and the kids are in charge of bring side dishes and desserts. With my sweet tooth, it is only too fitting that my family would opt to create a pie. Now when you think of Thanksgiving you normally think of apple pie or pumpkin pie, but in my in-laws house, Thanksgiving means grape pie. Unique, delicious and something we only make once a year, this pie is a real treat!
I love holidays. Spending time together, sharing great meals and participating in holiday festivities, but what I don’t like is the extra money that is associated with it.
