  1. The crustless pumpkin pie looks yummy ... but the link is uncooperative. The church Thanksgiving dinner is Saturday, so it's planning time!

  13. I have a question. If I make the dressing the night before, will I need to cook it longer than two hours because it's starting out refrigerated?

  14. Hi Kelli,
    No, I don't think you'll need to worry about the timing. I would, though, keep the bread separate from everything else so it doesn't get overly soggy overnight in the fridge.
    I usually toast the bread, cube it, and put in ziplocks, then do the same with the veggies in separate ziplocks. In the morning I combine with the spices and broth.

    I hope this helps!

  16. So, so true. A crock pot is an amazing and helpful thing. I love cooking roasts in mine. They taste and smell so much better!

  17. This is awesome! I have 5 (yes 5) crockpots and I was sitting here feeling badly about the fact that I am doing all the Thanksgiving cooking myself this year when I decided I needed to have a crockpot thanksgiving and here it is. Thanks so much. I know this was posted 3 years ago but I hope it is still working well for you.
