We are LIVE! Wednesdays at Heirloom Meals Radio with Diane Perry Gardner

Sometimes you meet someone, even if it's on the radio that you feel you've known your entire life!! Meet Diane Perry Gardner. Truly, she a kindred spirit!! Diane bridges her move from South Carolina to Madison, CT with her love of food, family and cooking. And she did it by writing cookbooks - first very local with "What's Cooking Madison?", then she branched out to to the whole state with "What's Cooking Connecticut Shoreline?" and then spread her wings further with her recent book, "What's Cooking in New England" which is a collection of tried and true recipes from real people that Diane has tested and photographed. Check it out - you can even find some of Diane's southern specialties!!
I know we need a Diane, take two, on the radio show. Thank you Diane!!

Tabletop Tuesdays - A Trio of Desserts

How can you resist??
Pumpkin cheesecake
Maple Cream Pie with gluten free crust 
Cranberry Raisin Pie
What I love about this arrangement is the desserts are three different heights so it adds interest to what everyone already knows will be a sweet sensory overload.  It also begs the question are they in height order of deliciousness?  Only my Thanksgiving guests know the answer.  But, really, isn't it a matter of taste?
