Didn't Win the Pie Contest, But I Now Have a New Countertop

Sadly, I did not win the original pie category of the contest below. However, I'm pretty excited about our new countertop. Come and take a look at it on my other blog, Here and There.

Next up tomorrow, Joe the contractor installs the new faucet, the old garbage disposal, and reconnects the dishwasher. We'll still be living out of boxes though, since he won't finish the cabinets until his final visit. When that will be remains a mystery.

In the meantime, hope you all have a wonderful holiday!

I've only recently found your 'blog and, like you, am working with agave--though more as a "cook" than a baker. For Thankspiving, I'm making family- traditional cranberry sauce sweeteded with agave then enriched with acai powder, and I will be trying my family-traditional pumpkin pudding recipe with agave for the first time this year. I am working on a good formula for hot cocoa--every effort so far is too weak, sweet in the first sips, but fading to bland thereafter...any tips?

Wow, definitely great with the new countertop!

Mrs. C -- I don't drink cocoa any more, but I do make hot carob drinks sometimes. What I do is use almond milk or rice milk mixed with the carob and a tablespoon of agave nectar. I boil it all together, whisking the entire time. It always works very well. Good luck!
