There are few food things I’m emotionally attached to at Thanksgiving (although not having pumpkin pie for dessert is simply a non-starter in my book). I love my mom’s corn pudding and my sister’s mashed potatoes, but I also love trying new things. Last year I made No-Churn Pumpkin Ice Cream (Ayesha Curry’s from Food & Wine November 2017) and it will now be a staple on our menu. Also, these Roasted Carrots with Honey & Tahini Drizzle…there were no leftovers.
This year I’m making this No-Churn Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream recipe from The View From Great Island and I will obviously be making the carrots.
