Saturdays At Shop This

Enjoyment.  This is what this coming week is and season is all about. And I plan to do just that. Lucky me, as I have my favorite daughter and future son-in-law coming home. Along with them, we are gathering friends tomorrow night and on Thanksgiving Day for memory making and calorie in-taking." My heart and schedule is full. Much to do, and not sure how much blogging will get done in the coming days.  So here's the wrap up of the week.

Brrr! Can you believe how cold it is already? This faux but fabulous fur (and it's 100% vegan ) is so much fun. I mean, a navy fur will get you noticed and keep you warm. It's only sold at Shop Bazaar and is less than $300.

Sur La Table

HERE: 17 Sinfully Seasonal Desserts

Easy Peazy Cinnamon Apple Galette with Vanilla Ice Cream
Easy, really? I just may try this, as I have never made a galette. Have you? Because I am the opposite of plain vanilla, I would change the ice cream to homemade Cinnamon or Pumpkin. 
Broma Bakery

Pumpkin Cheesecake
Just about perfection, isn't it? This may be the recipe for my cheesecake this year.
Williams Sonoma

Maple Pumpkin Gingersnap 
Tiramisu Trifle
A perfect pumpkin dessert for a crowd. And a dish just didn't get more elegant. A word to the wise, guests usually just take a heaping tablespoon. I often have made too much of this fabulous recipe.
How Sweet It Is

Brûléed Bourbon-Maple 
Pumpkin Pie
This chocolate and pumpkin duo is a real showstopper! I have included this recipe for Mollie. The bourbon part is for myself.
Bon Appetit

Pecan Pie Cookies
Everyone has room for a cookie. Even the non dessert eater will have a bite of these.
Half Baked Harvest

Toasted Marshmallow 
Butterscotch Pie
Another showstopper. But you better start this recipe soon. It takes three days to complete!
Bon Appetit

Salted Apple Pretzel Pie
This recipe made me smile. It's just as cute as can be. What a fun twist on a classic apple pie.

Chocolate Pumpkin Cheesecake Cake
Now I find this irresistible! The best of both worlds. Hopefully it is as good as it looks.
Life, Love & Sugar

9 Smarty-Pants Baking Tricks 
You will find this detailed article and video very helpful for perfect pies, cookies and cakes every time!

Gingerbread Pear Tart 
{Guten Free and Vegan}
This recipe had me, after looking at the ingredients, at Amaretto! What a wonderful compliment to the pears. This would be an unexpected end to any special meal.
Heather Christo

No Churn Pumpkin Ice Cream
The term no churn means it's easy and you don't need an ice cream machine. I made my version of this last night....meaning I always adjust the seasonings to taste. It is just fabulous! Your crowd will roar. Serve in on its' own with a caramel sauce, which I am doing tomorrow night. Or top off your favorite pie with a scoop on Thanksgiving. It is so very yummy!!
Simply Recipes

Mile High Apple Pie
I used this recipe several years ago, with my own tweeks. It's fabulous. And that caramel sauce is key!
Sugar Hero

Apple And Persimmon Tarte Tatin
A tarte tatin always seems so special. It's a classic French dessert. A quick caramel sauce and an easy puff pastry crust gives major flavors for very little effort.

Bacon Latticed Apple Pie
Have you ever? Talk about sweet & salty! The smoky drippings from the bacon permeates the crust of the pie. Then the bacon mixes with the spiced apples and bourbon infused crust. OMG!

Incredibly Gooey Collapsing Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie Custard Cake
Oh my! Tieghan swears that this recipe is super easy, and only takes 10 minutes to prep and 18 minutes to bake. And get this - it takes 10 eggs!
Half Baked Harvest

Spiced Ginger Bundt Cake
 Good both warm and at room temperature, this cake is best drizzled with caramel sauce, topped with spiced whipped cream—or both.
Williams Sonoma

Pumpkin Monkey Bread
I've never had Monkey Bread, but I know that it is a "thing." My family surely will want it to be their thing!
