ABK Essential Holiday Dinner

Are you feeling overwhelmed at the thought of preparing Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner? That’s how I felt the first time I cooked a holiday meal.  I was 20 years old and  living three states away from my mom at the time, and I had absolutely no clue how I was going to pull off preparing a traditional holiday meal by myself in a one bedroom apartment!  After 34 years of cooking holiday meals, I’ve come up with tested recipes and a formula for preparing and serving the ultimate delicous holiday feast.

The video series also includes lots of tips for make ahead, so you won’t spend the whole day on Thanksgiving or Christmas in the kitchen! Many dishes can be made in advance for convenience and also to reduce stress!  By preparing a few dishes ahead of time, you’ll be able to spend more time with your great Aunt Betty answering questions about why you still haven’t had children, even though you’ve only been married for 10 months.

  1. When you say “prepared pie crust” that doesn’t mean that you pre-bake them, does it? Sorry, I am a pie newbie. Thanks in advance

    1. Hi Jane,
      I am not sure, I haven’t used frozen pie crust? I am almost certain the directions for use will be on the packaging! Thanks for reading ABK and Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Hi Sallee, I use a 20 oz can for this recipe because it makes two pumpkin pies. If you’re just making one, definitely use a 12 oz can. Thanks for asking!

  2. You recipe is almost excatly like Libby’s, other than your addition of vanilla. A significant difference is the ratio of pumpkin to all the other ingredients. You doubled everything else above the Libby’s recipe, but left the pumpkin at 29 oz. Was this a technical error, or did you really double the evaporated milk, eggs and everything else?

    1. Hi Rita, I doubled the recipe because it makes 2 pumpkin pies, if you want to just make one pie, then definitely halve the ingredients. Thanks for asking!

    1. Hi Lindsay, I usually don’t blind bake or seal with egg wash before filling for this pumpkin pie recipe, I immediately place the filling in the unbaked pie crust and bake! Hope this helps and thank you for asking,

    This pie was so delicious and easy to make!! I’m only 16 but it only took me about 45 minutes to make and then the bake time and that was it! My family couldn’t believe how good the crust was so go check out her recipe for that!!
