Don't Be Mad

I was gonna do it. I promise I was...if for no other reason than to make you, Kindred Spirits, proud.
"Where are you going?", the Hubster inquired.
" To Williams Sonoma to buy a springform pan, so I can make this!" said I, proudly displaying the pumpkin cheesecake recipe.
"So you are going to spend $40 on a special pan and another $50 worth of ingredients on a recipe that may or may not turn out?"
"Why don't you just buy a cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory?"
The man is a genius. That is what a post graduate degree from Baylor University will do for you. It will give you cheesecake clarity.
So while I had every intention of making a pumpkin cheesecake with a gingersnap crust in my new springform pan (what road is paved with good intentions?) this is what I bought.

Yes, Kindred Spirits, you can make pumpkin cheesecake on the phone. The perfect pumpkin cheesecake is 1 phone call away.

Cute story! I can cook and I can bake, but I tried this "I am going to make a cheesecake" for Christmas a few years back...I should have called the Cheesecake Factory too.

Dear Miss Lisa-
I am sitting here 'resting' before I head into the kitchen to tackle pies.
When I clicked on your blog and it opened up I just signed and relaxed. It is so beautiful.

I don't blame you about the cheesecake-
I am tackling the Pioneer Woman's Flat Apple Pie using her pie crust recipe from her new cookbook.

My daughter who lives in Dallas is going to the book signing in your area to get it signed.

Happy Thanksgiving,


How do I join the book club?

Sweet Lisa~ I'm strolling in to catch up and especially to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving!
It's such a wonderful time to stop and reflect on all those we cherish and are truly grateful for.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to visit and leave feeling inspired!

Even though our Thanksgiving is very small in number, with hubby and son (we don't count the cat cause she doesn't like turkey). We don't scrimp on the menu...from appetizers to desserts with several carb loaded dishes in between! We will be enjoying tryptophan playoffs too!

Sweet Holiday wishes,

Oh, Lisa, I love it! You are adorable! What a great idea...actually, I went to Costco and bought my pumpkin cheesecake...no, actually I bought a pumpkin pie AND a cheesecake! I thought about making them, but with everything else to do, it just didn't make sense. Thank goodness we have great places to purchase delicious desserts!

Have an absolutely marvelous Thanksgiving, filled with laughter and joy, with those that you love!
