Minnie loves to make Thanksgiving desserts and pumpkin mascarpone cheesecake is the fave! It's light and fluffy compared to a standard cheesecake. Minnie can't wait to make this again this year.
Fall Candles/Diffusers are a great way to get into the fall spirit. If you hosting, it will set the tone as soon as your guests walk through the front door or giving the host a gift of a candle or diffuser would add to the ambiance of your Thanksgiving meal.
