Pumpkin Tiramisu

SO MANY Thanksgiving desserts, so little time.  How can I make all of the desserts?  I’m having anxiety – I need to make them ALL!  My Pinterest boards are FULL of pumpkin and there are four days until Thanksgiving.  #igiveup

You guys, we are mere days away from putting the pumpkin away for the year!  First, how the heck is that possible, and second – NOOOOOOO!  I’m not ready for mint and  white chocolate and toffee and cranberries and santa cookies yet!  I need another week – or two.  Or forever, please.  Who said pumpkin is a fall dessert, anyway?  Not cool, whoever you are.  #pumpkinforevah

I actually have a very full winter Pinterest board, too – and pages upon pages of recipes flagged in my magazines and cookbooks – and I’m sure that a month from now I’m going to be boo-hooing and lamenting the end of holiday dessert time – and begging you all not to leave me when you go on your January diets. #iknowhowyouare

I think I’ll just go ahead and end every paragraph with a hashtag today.  #haha #notreally #lovemeahashtag

ANYWAY…pumpkin tiramisu.  Nothing fancy – it’s like regular tiramisu, but it has pumpkin in it.  It’s pumpkin-flavored tiramisu. It’s simple, and it’s awesome. But it’s not quick – this isn’t a last minute Thanksgiving dessert, so please go to the store tonight and buy some mascarpone, and then plan to make it on Wednesday night so it will be all ready to go on Thursday.   …

I am a Thanksgiving traditionalist.  I want the same dishes on my Thanksgiving table, year after year.  And for me, it’s not even about the turkey – it’s about the sides.  Mashed potatoes, gravy, homemade noodles, dressing (not stuffing), homemade rolls, sweet potatoes, real cranberries, my Grandma’s salad, green bean casserole and, if we have…

I’m in that place again.  I’m in that place where I have a birthday party looming in the not-so-distant future and I’ve done ZERO to get ready for it.  I haven’t ordered my decorations, started crafting my banners or even planned the meal.  The party is in eight days.  Oh, and I have that whole…

  You guys, I’m coming up on my four-year blogging anniversary.  It was four years ago that I was planning my daughter’s fifth birthday party and had only just discovered food blogs myself.  Pinterest wasn’t really even a thing then.  Neither was Instagram.  In fact, it wasn’t until I was a year in to this…

I totally bought an electric throw blanket last weekend.  I am SO dreading the cold weather that I actually took my 30-something year old tushie to Target and bought an electric blanket. It’s like I woke up and was like, “How can I be MORE like my mother today?” Sorry, Mom. I dread the winter….
