happy thanksgiving

We are going over to my sister’s for Thanksgiving. I love going to her house as she pays so much attention to detail and makes every effort for the family to feel welcome.

She has always had an eye for design, lighting and color. We shared a room growing up until she left for college. She was always the one who would say, “Inge, it’s time to change the room around and I have been thinking about arranging the beds so they face north.” North? I was just getting used to the latest arrangement of the bedroom. She liked rearranging things so much she changed her major from Nursing to Architecture/Interior Design. Her house showcases her passion for interior design and I love it!

I am being commissioned to make my mouth watering Carrot Soufflé that my brother-in-law loves. I love the fact that he loves it. He was raised in Trinadad and he can make the most delicious food. I feel honored that he likes this dish. Here is the recipe:


Carrot Soufflé

1lb. or 2 cups of carrots
½ cup melted butter
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla

Peel and cook carrots until tender. Drain. Add melted butter to carrots and beat with mixer. Add eggs, one at a time; beat after each egg. Add sugar, baking powder, flour, salt and vanilla. Mix Well. Put in greased 1½ quart casserole dish. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg on top. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Stick knife in center; should come out clean. (Use 3 quart dish when recipe is doubled.) This recipe makes 4 servings.


This is pretty easy to make and you can always cut back on the sugar. Though not the healthiest dish, I guarantee it is tasty. I admit to sneaking this for breakfast the following morning when the kids are not looking.

I wish for you to have a safe and wonderful holiday. I hope you can genuinely smile, graciously hug, willingly serve, sweetly delegate and ask for help before you desperately need it. : ) And lastly, be most thankful for the little things you have in your life.

I am thankful for...

The health of my family
Living close to family and friends
Watching my boys grow up with their cousins
Having electricity and clean water

Really, what else do I need?

O.K. besides chocolate!
