Weekend Company {Guest Blogger Bekki}

Good Morning and Happy Saturday! It's so hard to believe Thanksgiving is only 5 days away! The days are flying by, so I hope you are starting to narrow down those menus and are looking forward to a happy, healthy and yummy holiday.

Today we welcome back into the EMM kitchen a great friend to this blog, and someone who is quickly become a wonderful personal friend too. So, please grab a cup of coffee, or a Mimosa (after all it is the weekend) and say hello to Bekki~




Good Morning EMM Fans! I hope this recipe greets all of you with the warmth and the love surrounding every holiday season. I want to thank Mrs. Everyday for inviting me to share another recipe from my celebration table. With Thanksgiving just next week I thought I'd share a recipe for one of my favorite pies. I love anything pumpkin! With this no bake pie it allows you to prepare dessert without the worries of managing your oven's time. A large scoop of eggnog ice cream or classic whipped cream compliments a slice perfectly.


I am married to my wonderful husband Josh, have a beautiful 12 year old step daughter Amy and 2 furbaby sweethearts Minnie and Shadow. I am a self taught baker/cook. I taught Wilton cake decorating for a while, worked in a grocery store bakery and have even spent time baking wedding/birthday cakes as a hobby on the side. My love for cooking has been since childhood. Spending time with my mother, aunts, and grandmothers. Aiding in their recipes or just being there for the conversation. Its always been a source of calm, peace, and ultimate fulfillment. The idea that you add your love to each recipe and share it with the people you care about is such an amazing blessing to me in more ways then I can ever put on paper. I have decided writing a cookbook was something I could do to share my love of food with family, friends, and whomever else comes my way. I hope your day is blessed with all your favorite things.
