Paula Deen is the queen of the yummy gooey desserts. We wish the queen well in her quest to beat diabetes, but we can enjoy Paula Deen’s Mystery Pecan Pie on this one day of the year. Just have some turkey (lean protein) and plenty of veggies to counteract the sweetness. I’ve been making a pumpkin cake for the kids for years that is very similar to Paula’s Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake. People who don’t like pumpkin pie often like this cake, especially with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream. Yum!
|Emeriil’s Pecan Chocolate Chip Pie|
Everyone will want to taste Emeril’s Pecan Chocolate Chip Pie. How can you go wrong with that flavor combination? Cut me a little slice and then I’ll take just a small slice after that.
|Cornbread Stuffing a la Julia Child|
Remember the movie “Julie and Julia”? Here is Julia Child’s Cornbread Stuffing and it is worth trying. Julia Child was all about flavor and this stuffing has flavors from sausage, celery, onions, spices, cornbread. chicken stock, and, of course, butter. Be one with Julia! You get serious bragging rights with this one.
