After being inspired by this New York Times article, my brother proposed we do a take on the idea during the long weekend post-Thanksgiving…and boy did we! Everyone in my family (and my good friend Megan, in town visiting moi (more photos to come)) cooked a dish (or two!) and we had an amazing, delicious feast that involved a whole day of cooking, crafting, baking and then indulging.

Warm Brie & Spinach Salad (using this recipe, sans chicken)

Carrot & Ginger soup: the perfect Fall color and made by my sister

The most amazing Eggplant Parmesan EVER. Courtesy of Megan’s fav food blog, Eggs on Sunday.

A Donovan family favorite: Lamb & Apple Stew

Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes (I used this recipe)

Chocolate, Caramel & Banana Cream Pie (a favorite from SF’s famed Tartine)
