We Won!

Good morning! I am all in after the past few days of cooking and celebrating but I'm happy as can be. All the food last night was amazing, one dish better than the next and boy am I bloated today. But it was worth it, we had so much fun and our Crazy Coconut Curry won the competition. Tracy and I along with the help of our husbands, took first place in the fabulous music trivia contest that Lisa and Bill put together.

Team Bindi for the Win!

We never did make it up the mountain yesterday and this is the reason.

Tunnel of Fudge

This bloody cake took all day to make. It was a long and involved process, Martha Stewart complicated. I'd love to say that it was the absolute best cake that I ever tasted. It was moist and fudgy for sure, it got a handful of votes in the dessert contest and we came home with only a very small chunk leftover but it really missed the mark for me. The effort did not match the outcome and that, for me, is a total letdown when it comes to cooking. Next time I'll stick with my tried and true Strawberry Cream Trifle where the trifle bowl always gets licked clean.

Here's my favorite photo of the weekend. I enjoyed that turkey dinner so much. What was your favorite dish of the holiday? I've got more Thanksgiving food porn and recipes to share but now it's time for me to turn back into a pumpkin, I want to have my morning juice and get going on the laundry. Have a beautiful day and enjoy the rest of the weekend!


  1. Congrats on the win!!! My favorite dish is definitely pumpkin pie-cliche, I know-but so delish.
    Glad you had such a great time :D

  2. Oh my gosh, I hate spending a million hours making something only to have it fall short. Sometimes simple, is best. Like rice krispie treats, LOL. Congratulations on your win! My favorite Thanksgiving dish is sweet potatoes with brown sugar gravy. We never did the marshmallow sweet potato thing in my family.
