There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

Baking for Malibu

The baking is done! Last night was "baking for Thanksgiving" night! I am off to the relatives casa in Malibu. I made Chocolate Pecan Pie that turned out beautifully. Pumpkin Bread, with golden raisins, dried cherries and almonds. Also, a Jeff Davis pie, which is actually a chess pie. Not sure about the pumpkin bread. Ended up making two loaves. For some reason it didn't cook just right. But tastes good anyway!

Now all I need is a turkey feast, and some vino! I am ready for the day, aren't You? Happy Thanksgiving all!


  1. Wow, that looks SO good!

    So, what time am i comming over?

  2. I got lucky - my inlaws are doing Turkey day in Burbank so I don't have to travel far this year. I've noticed that So.Cal Thanksgiving Feasts Always include Vino... Never really came up while growing up in Texas that Wine could be drank during feasts.. They only drank Coors or Budlight. *makes a gross face at beer*

    I got elected to bring the Martinelli's and Wine for Turkey day. Hope i choose some decent Wines...

  3. I'm coming right NOW!
    Have the best day!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the meal and the family fun..**hugs**

  5. Ok, I'm like, totally jealous! Not ONLY are you having dinner in Malibu, but all of this good food, too! I'd so be there if I could!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving!
    Hope you enjoy your meal and your time off and that the company is as good as your vino!

  7. Happy Thanksgiving! Since you never came back to read my list, I crossed Santa Barbara off the list of places I'd move to. ;-)

    I hope you have a nice relaxing weekend!

  8. YUMMM pie and baked goods....

  9. Oh my God! And just to think I was just near Malibu a few days ago (now I'm back on the east coast).

    Please, please send me some of that pecan pie. I don't care if there's none left. Send it anyway! ;)

  10. MMmmmmmm, yummy. I didn't cook shit this year except for some soup, but my mom made some apple carrot cake.

  11. slyde: anytime you want. bring wine.

    mayren: Its Cali! Wine is a must. In Texas, beer is a must... *blech to beer* Hope it was festive!

    Miss I: Come on! Someday, we will all meet in SB for a party...

    Steph: I bet you had great food! i have a feeling you are a great cook. thanks! :hug:

    Miss 1999: it was a great trip. I enjoy So Cal so much. These people are in a world all thier own! and its fun to watch.

    nicole: good wine, good food and good company would make even a gathering out in the elements a good time if you ask me.

    rat: you had a list? and SB was on there? why did you mark it off? dude, the breast action here is so collegiate! :lol:

    Musings: Happy T day! hope yours was relaxing.

    dan: next time you are down here, stop by for a piece and some coffee... :wink:

    sophie: i will trade you for some hawaiian bread. :yes:

    loops: I love soup! what kind!?

  12. That is a tasty looking cake, I must admit. And I'm not the cakiest of people.

  13. Oh my god. I need the recipe for that pie. NEED it.
