Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! Things have been pretty insane these last few days… lots of stuff going on, family visiting and a ton of holiday baking… I just haven’t quite found time to put it all into words for my blog!

But… I couldn’t just leave you all before the holidays without saying HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! I am so thankful for so many things in my life…

  • my wonderful parents, sister and family who are always there for me!
  • my friends from back home in Tucson and my friends in the Bay Area and my new-found friends in L.A
  • my amazing boyfriend who happens to be an awesome recipe taster too!
  • all the wonderful friends I have made in the past year through this website – I love all of you guys!
  • the great opportunities that have come my way in the past year
  • the most fabulous family ever in Malibu… you know who you are!

I want to know what you guys are all thankful for too?!?

I hope each and everyone of you has an amazing Thanksgiving with your friends and family and you get to eat lots of delicious food and celebrate all the great things that you have in your life.

This is what I will be making this year:

And then of course a Turkey, with a billion gallons of gravy, my fav mashed potatoes and stuffing (from a box… don’t judge me)

    Hi Gaby – Happy Thanksgiving to you! I am a friend of Maria’s in SLC and now have your blog in my bookmarks. I have a recipe question about the Chocolate Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake . . . was going to make it for Thanksgiving but will hold off til I hear from you so it is just right.

    The recipe calls for 1 C pumpkin puree which seems to be put in the food processor with the cream cheese . . . but later in the directions you say to pour remaining pumpkin mixture into the prepared pan and then add the chocolate mixture into the pumpkin mixture . . . I’m confused . . . HELP. If you use the entire cup earlier . . . you don’t have any remaining.

    Thanks for your help.
