  1. My sweet tooth is growing with age. I could have a bit of all and forget dinner. The peanut butter-chocolate trifle is so original and I am thinking I will be getting protein with the peanuts and dark chocolate is heart-healthy, right?

  2. WOW! They all look amazing but I would be even more thankful if they all ended up on my table like magic this thanksgiving- no pressure! LOL!~

  3. Kristy, Melissa, & Chris – I would be happy to have you over and serve all 8 desserts! Although, you may want to save the Death by Chocolate for last. It is quite a cake!

    Claudia – Very true! I have been in a savory mode myself. Very unlike me, but really enjoying the results on the scale. : )

    Jessica – If only you lived a little closer… I would be happy to deliver. Speaking of which… Will the little one be joining you for Thanksgiving? ; )

  4. Wonderful roundup! Me being the dessert fiend, everything here looks fantastic. Mmm that pumpkin milkshake has to be so delicious.

  5. I am thankful too! Beautiful recipes, beautiful photos and wonderful flavor combinations 🙂 Hope you and your loved ones have a blessed Thanksgiving! Tricia
