Purple Kitchen Treats

Over the past few years, I have been working on a cookbook. During this time, I took time off to finish my Master's Degree. Now that I have accomplished that, I am working again on my cookbook, slowly but surely.

However, over the past few months, something interesting has happened...I have received multiple requests for baked goods, particularly my cookies. I am also receiving multiple requests for granola. So, with all these requests in mind, I have started to make my cookies for sale, along with my granola.

My official web site is available, but will be undergoing a significant redesign. Be sure to visit my "official" web site at: http://www.susanshonk.com and watch for some exciting changes.

Thanksgiving Day menu - 2013

Hi Everyone,

I hope this post finds you all well.  I have been prepping for the Thanksgiving holiday since the weekend and here is what I have on the menu:

  • A southwestern flavored brined turkey
  • Pork loin roast that has also been brined
  • Roasted brussel sprouts
  • Green beans with shallots and toasted almonds
  • Roasted carrots with an espresso balsamic drizzle
  • Roasted garlic mashed potatoes
  • Sweet potatoes with butter and maple syrup
  • Pumpkin pie
  • Apple pie
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Black walnut ice cream
The brine for the turkey and pork loin is posted in my blog, as is the roasted brussels sprouts recipe.  The sweet potatoes with butter and maple syrup is very simple and I'll post that over the weekend.

I think that is a very good menu for a small crowd with enough left-overs to feed us for another week.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday and a fabulous weekend.

From the heart of my purple kitchen to you,
