Pumpkin Crunch

It is only acceptable to eat pumpkin-related foods during the Fall. I’ve been making this dessert for years and it’s always a success. Easy to make and utterly delicious, the Pumpkin Crunch will please your crowds’ taste buds. You can prepare and refrigerate the wet ingredients the day prior but I strongly suggest to bake this dessert in the same day you are serving it. Remember to let it cool down for 3-4 hours before serving it to your guests. The top layer has a delicious crunch and the bottom will have a sweet pie consistency. All together is a party in your mouth. Oh and while you bake it, your whole house will smell amazing!

Sweet Potato-Pecan Casserole

It is a great time to start sharing some of my favorite recipes since this is the start of the baking season.

This dish is perfect for Thanksgiving gatherings and it’s a Southern staple, mainly in North Carolina.

There is no clear winner in this battle and just everything else, the secret is to eat your potatoes in moderation.
