Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert recipe? I tend to stick with the basics, lots of pumpkin, lots of gingerbread and bread puddings! The classics are my favorite, and while I love experimenting with new twists, I tend to stick to flavor combinations that I know and love…as well as the rest of the family! We usually have 20-30 people at our holiday dinners, and it’s best to play it safe and bring a dessert that I know everyone loves!
