What could be more perfect for Thanksgiving than Pecan Pie and some Sweet Potatoes! Nothing but maybe yams!
I made the pie pretty quick, just lots of sugar and pecans. Then I started on the potatoes, which came from my handy True Blood Cookbook; from a sweet little section about Lettie Mae and the Reverend Daniels.
Man I miss True Blood :(
Man I miss True Blood :(
First boil them until soft (check with a fork) then drain the pot and let them cool. After then cool, enough, peel. Some of the skin starts to come off while boiling...so that helps.
Next slice and arrange in a dish. I went ahead and made a bit more, lots of folks to feed.
Then add the butter and lemons to the top.
Mix the water, sugar and vanilla in a bowl, then spread over the butter. Next add the corn syrup over all.
To top it off sprinkle with the cinnamon.
Bake for about an hour, until potatoes/yams are glazed.
Let cool and enjoy.

Tonight I made Mini-Mortal Spicy Corn and Cheddar Muffins from the True Blood Drinks and Bites book. Yummy!
These are from one of my favorite True Blood moments...with my favorite vampire, Eric Northman!
First you mix together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl whisk together the buttermilk, egg and chile. Then combine them and mix.
Next, fold in the butter then cheese and green onions. After scooping into muffin tins, cook for about 10 mins or until muffins are golden. Let cool and enjoy!
These muffins were scrumptious. As Craig put it "hardy, savory and delicious."
Extra tip: Add a little sprinkle of cheese to each muffin before baking.

Found a great deal on Deborah Lippmann True Blood Forsaken Lipstick and Nail Polish! My friend had the bigger case of Forsaken eye shadows and I loved them, so I decided to check them out.
I found the shadows, lipsticks and nail polishes...mostly all sold on Ebay now. The shadows were a bit pricey so I snatched up the polish/lipstick combo!
I love the blood red color! My toenails are usually painted black so the dark...almost burgundy red is perfect!
The lipstick is a bit dark as well, not my usual bright red, but I still love it! Definitely more of a fall lip.
It is nice to have something else to remember True Blood by he he! I know, I am so cheezy! he he
