DIY VEGETABLE BOUILLON

This is life-changing stuff, an all-vegetable mixture that's kept in the freezer, then scooped out a teaspoon at a time (salt preserves and softens the mixture to make it scoopable).

Stuffed Pumpkin with Apple & Cranberry

SO PRETTY ON THE TABLE

My friend Ann started this recipe. It can either be a side dish or even better, with a little whipped cream, a dessert. Very pretty!

NARY A MARSHMALLOW IN SIGHT
