New York City Candy Sculptures and Hot Chocolate

The 22 degree temperatures didn't stop me from strolling around Manhattan the day before Thanksgiving. The change in temperature encouraged a lot of coffee and hot chocolate drinking by both the locals and the tourists. I noticed organic coffee shops springing up throughout Manhattan.

My 40 minute walk began at Penn Station, progressed towards Bryant Park on 42nd Street and eventually towards Central Park. Along the way to my son's appartment, I passed all the newly decorated store fronts all ready for the holidays!

Dazzling Thanksgiving Salad

Thanksgiving Acorn Squash Salad

Dazzle your guests with this beautiful healthy salad that I made for Thanksgiving with greens, red onions, pomegranate seeds, and slivers of roasted acorn squash.

I recently tasted this fabulous salad at a friends' house. It looked like a side dish, but she called it a salad! Maybe because it served at room temperature which is great for freeing up the host from last minute heating. I enjoyed all the flavors of fall in this one salad.

Have you ever had roasted garlic in an Italian restaurant? Amazing Right?

Unlike raw garlic, roasted garlic is soft, mild tasting, and creamy. It is delicious eaten alone, spread on bread ( gluten free of course), added to pasta ( gluten free) or vegetable dishes.

It's really easy to make and makes a beautiful interesting presentation when served as a bulb!
