Thanksgiving 2015 Recap

Thanksgiving 2015 was a whirlwind.  I cooked for three days, had three surprise guests and totally forgot to take pictures.  I tried out some new things this year and can proudly say that everything turned out great.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds - Step by Step From Pumpkin Guts to Major Yum

It's that time of year again.  Actually, most of you were doing this a weeks before us because we tend to wait until the very last moment before buying pumpkins.  We got three of those big, orange punks this year (Mr. Tango felt like carving one for a change) so that means LOTS of seeds.  Fine by me, I actually quite like pumpkin seeds as long as I didn't make them.  I always, ALWAYS screw them up.  This year I was determined to overcome my pepito fear and fails.

Chrysanthemum Pastries

I found this recipe on pinterest and couldn't help but be intrigued by it.  The final product is amazing.  The original recipe was in Cyrillic (I think) and even after using Google's translator it was hard to decipher.  I took on the task of attempting to rework the recipe in English using American measurements as much as possible.
