Thanksgiving desserts

We are having a small crowd (5 adults, 3 kids) for thanksgiving. I made a pumpkin cheesecake http://inhomecooking.blogspot.com/search/label/Pumpkin%20cheesecake
it is in the freezer. I will make a chocolate desert because I love chocolate deserts, thinking http://www.recipegirl.com/2008/08/12/molten-chocolate-cakes-with-irish-cream/
Molly asked about pie. Now I like pie but could live w/o it but is does seem like for thanksgiving you need pie, Molly requested apple, Brad's favorite is blueberry so I'm thinking of making http://www.recipezaar.com/Mini-Apple-Pies-So-Easy-Not-Much-Hassel-286704
And maybe doing 1/2 apple 1/2 blueberry. I figure I can freeze the leftovers. Anyone ever try mini pies? I worry a little about them coming out of the Muffin tins.

Thanks

Vegetarian Favorites!

Tonight we had a friend of my daughter's and her mother here for Pizza between school and PTA. I promised next month I would cook for them! What's your favorite Company Vegetarian Meal? I'll have to check if they like spicy, for my Veggie Chili:)
Thanks for sharing!

Southwest snack mix

Regina asked for a spicy snack that could be stored in a jar. Here is one we like.

4 cups popped popcorn
3 cups mini pretzel twists
2 cups mini garlic bagel chips
1 cup corn chips
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Dash Cayenne

In a large bowl, combine popcorn, pretzels, bagels and corn chips.

In a small bowl combine all remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour evenly over popcorn mix, toss gently to coat. Store in tightly covered container.

Great Glazed Cupcake Recipe?

We are having a ladies lunch for my best friend, who is expecting her 3rd baby, in a couple of weeks.
I have a great floral cupcake pan from Pampered Chef (https://www.pamperedchef.com/ordering/prod_details.tpc?prodId=13837&words=floral%20cupcake) and am looking for a delicious cupcake recipe to use in it. Because the tops have such a pretty flower design, I don't want to cover in frosting. I am open to different flavors.

Appetizer - Proscuitto & Pear

With the holidays coming up, and a couple of events I am hosting or co-hosting, I was looking for some fun, new appetizers. I just came across this deliciously simple looking appetizer. Plus, it looks beautiful! I will be trying this sometime this month and will report back.
