Desserts You Need This Fall

Print Post

Well, with everyone hunkering down for the next couple of days to hopefully stay safe from the storm, I’ll officially start to make my way through the piles of recipes and cookbooks in my apartment to come up with a Thanksgiving menu.

Ok, who are we kidding, I need to decide on desserts!  While I could be perfectly happy with an entire meal that revolves around pumpkin, I’m pretty sure my family doesn’t feel the same.  Here is some inspiration for all sorts of Fall desserts (pumpkin AND other)  that you probably need to make now or for Thanksgiving in just a few weeks!
