Charlotte's 25 Best Restaurants

Charlotte Magazine December 2011 issue has a great feature with their list of 25 best restaurants in Charlotte! 

"For a town that tends to focus on the new and shiny, Charlotte is relatively loyal when it comes to its restaurants. While some of the spots on this list have only recently arrived on the scene, others have been fine-dining staples for years and continue to have dining rooms—and kitchens—that bustle. These restaurants were chosen partially because of their service and value, but most importantly based on their ambience and food. Each excels."

Thanksgiving cookies!

Carrying on with the cooking theme I found these amazingly cute Thanksgiving cookies here



  • 16.5 oz pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookies
  • 16 oz chocolate creamy frosting
  • Orange decorating icing
  • Candy corn
  • Black decorating gel
  • Miniature candy-coated chocolate baking bits
How to make thanksgiving turkey cookies for kids:
This is definitely one of the tasty thanksgiving recipes for kids that you should try for this year with your kids. Heat oven to 350°F. Bake cookies as directed on roll. Cool for about 20 minutes. Spoon chocolate frosting into resealable food-storage plastic bag. Make small hole in bottom corner of bag. On each cookie, pipe frosting on outer edge of half of cookie. Arrange candy corn over frosting for turkey feathers. Then pipe orange icing onto each cookie to resemble thanksgiving turkey face and feet. Use orange icing to attach baking bits to turkey face for eyes. Pipe black gel on baking bits for centers of eyes. Turkey cookies is ready to serve.

Holiday cooking

It's that time of year again for holiday cooking! I found this great recipe for pumpkin pie from Cooking Light. I love this magazine because they always have great new recipes to try!



  • Filling:
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated low-fat milk 
  • 2 large egg whites 
  • 1 large egg 
  • 1 (15-ounce) can unsweetened pumpkin 
  • Crust:
  • 1/2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie dough (such as Pillsbury)
  • Cooking spray 
  • Topping:
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon amaretto (almond-flavored liqueur)
  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar


  • Position oven rack to lowest position.
  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • To prepare filling, combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add pumpkin, and stir with a whisk until smooth.
  • To prepare crust, roll dough into an 11-inch circle; fit into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Fold edges under and flute.
  • Pour pumpkin mixture into the crust. Place pie plate on a baking sheet. Place baking sheet on lowest oven rack. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350° (do not remove pie from oven); bake an additional 50 minutes or until almost set. Cool completely on wire rack.
  • To prepare topping, beat cream with a mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Add the amaretto and powdered sugar, and beat until blended. Serve with pie.

 We have a wonderful new artist at Interiors Marketplace! Gaye is a Charlotte native growing up within walking distance of the Mint Museum of Art. She began her art training there as a child. She studied art and art history at St. Mary’s Jr. College in Raleigh and UNC-Chapel Hill. She has studied with many artists over the years including Sally Miller, Alice Williams from Atlanta, Andy Braitman but her mentor is Connie Winters who has taught her the most.
Gaye’s special eye for color and light fill her paintings with joy! She paints landscapes including marshes and water scenes, interiors, still life, children, adults, and her dog! Whatever speaks to her heart she puts on a canvas! Painting has been her passion for years. She paints Plein Air as well as from photographs sometimes combining several photos to get the right composition and color.
