Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumb Bars

Sunday, November 11, 2018
Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumb Bars are the perfect addition to the Thanksgiving and Christmas dessert table from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumb Bars are for those times when you can't decide whether you want pumpkin pie, cheesecake or something with crumb topping.

I hope I'm not the only one who runs into these complicated decisions...

These Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumb Bars are all those favorites in one easy to make bar. They didn't last long and I'm pretty sure it was due to Colt having at least two on the first night but they were even better after a day in the fridge.

The crumb topping adds a wonderful texture to contrast the creamy pumpkin cheesecake filling.

You can't go wrong with these bars! As long as you love pumpkin, cheesecake and crumb topping these will be your new found favorite.

Beet Orange Salad

Beet Orange Salad with tarragon citrus vinaigrette recipes from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch. Roasted beets with fresh oranges makes this a holiday favorite side dish for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner.

If we go out to eat, and Beet Salad is on the menu I always order it. I just love beets, and can never get enough.

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching I thought I would share this easy Beet Orange Salad. It has roasted beets, oranges, clementines, and a tarragon citrus vinaigrette. The flavors really work together beautifully. 

Tarragon has a flavor similar to anise, and if you don't care for it feel free to substitute it for something else. Mint is good, and I use it for Beet Orange and Mint Salad I make. Fair warning the pictures are hideous! Rosemary or thyme would also be delicious. The possibilities are endless.

This salad is also good with a little goat cheese or feta, and maybe even some crushed pistachios or walnuts. But I kept it rather simple this time.

The most surprising thing was I had intentionally made extra and hid a rather large container in the fridge. Logan made sure to devour the whole thing before I could get to it the next day.. Ha..Ha.. and he's usually not a big beet eater.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie With Coconut Whip Cream

Gluten Free Dairy Free Pumpkin Pie with Coconut Whip Cream is a must for the Thanksgiving dessert table! It's perfect for those with food sensitivities but delicious enough everyone will love it from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.


For the love of pie you have to try this Gluten Free Dairy Pumpkin Pie. It is AMAZING! 

Pumpkin, sugar and spice and everything nice. But wait it doesn't stop there! 

See that big scoop of what almost looks like ice cream? It's whipped Coconut Cream, and I am here to say as a homemade whip cream connoisseur it is like heaven!

Colt scooped it with an ice cream scoop for some funny reason and it held it's shape gorgeously. The kids couldn't tell the difference from traditional whip cream, which says a lot because my kids gag at the site of cool whip.

It's light and fluffy but melts in your mouth just like whipped cream. With Thanksgiving quickly approaching I wanted to run through a few gluten free dairy free recipes for any sensitive guests we might have and this my friends is a keeper.
  
A jewel to be exact!
