CONTEST: Win a Bed Tray! 2 Winners

Low-Fat Heart Healthy Warm Banana Sundae (instead of pumpkin pie... )

1 medium banana, sliced
sugar and cinnamon
Promise margarine
1 cup fat-free frozen chocolate yogurt or ice cream

Put banana slices into a microwavable bowl. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Dab with margarine. Heat on high in microwave for about 1 minute. Serve over ice cream.

Not as yummy as pumpkin pie or my banana pudding, but it is a satisfying alternative!

My favorite Thanksgiving food is definitely the stuffing. I use my mom's recipe and everyone who tries it, agrees it is the best. Even though she's been gone almost 11 years now, her stuffing still brings back memories of childhood holidays.

Mom's stuffing

$1.00 worth of sausage (that's the way I learned it. It's about a pound,) browned and drained.
Add one stick of margarine and 2 bouillon cubes
Stir in most of a stalk of celery (sliced) and an onion (diced) and cook till they're softened.
Add a can of cream of mushroom or chicken soup, a bag of croutons for stuffing (with the seasoning) and enough chicken broth to make it the consistency you like. Use a little less if you're going to cook it in the bird because it will absorb some of the juices from the turkey.
I usually start saving the ends of loaves of bread about a month before a holiday. Just put them in the freezer until you need them, thaw them out, chop or tear them and put them in the oven till they're dry. You can use that in place of the croutons, or add them in if you have a big turkey and a lot of people coming and need to stretch the stuffing.

fruit salad

Okay, since I'm not limited to one recipe, I'll post another.
My kids would be heartbroken if I didn't include this in their Thanksgiving dinner (even though they're grown and have kids of their own.)

Fruit salad
one can of fruit cocktail, drained
one tart apple, peeled, cored and chopped
one banana, sliced lengthwise and chopped
cool whip

Mix together with enough cool whip to make it creamy.
Yum!

Hi there Kathy! Wonderful contest idea! I just wanted to pass along my tradition of making pumpkin cheesecake each year for Thanksgiving--need not included me in the drawing--thanks so very much

Pumpkin Cheesecake

3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup ground pecans
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 cup melted butter

Combine all ingredients very well, then press into bottom and about halfway up the sides of a 9" springform pan.
---------------------------------------
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
3 egg yolks
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground mace
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix very well.
----------------------------------------
3 (8 oz.) packages of cream cheese
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp. whipping cream
1 tbsp. corn starch
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. lemon extract

Beat cream cheese until soft. *Gradually add sugar.* Add egg, egg yolk and whipping cream. Beat until fluffy, then add corn starch and extracts. Mix this all together in the bowl with the pumpkin mixture, and stir very well until it is all smooth and consistent. Pour into springform pan, then bake at 350 degrees for about 55 minutes. The center may be a little soft--test with toothpick (and I usually end up cooking this a bit longer). Allow to cool on a wire rack. Best when refrigerated overnight.

This recipe is actually quite a bit easier than it may sound, and ever, oh-so wonderfully delicious!! If you do not want to mess with making the crust (the only tedious part) or do not have a springform pan, you can always buy a couple of pie crusts (graham craker if you can find them) and just fill those! Adjust baking time as needed and test accordingly.
