That's wonderful Cherylle!! This is her recipe - the woman who created this is Bryanna Clark Grogan, and if you go to www(dot)bryannaclarkgrogan(dot)com, you can find even more great recipes:

BRYANNA'S VEGAN PUMPKIN PIE

I don't like pumpkin pie made with tofu-no one ever suspects this one doesn't have eggs. One caution-MAKE THIS THE DAY BEFORE SERVING. It's needs a day to set really well, I find. This is a spicy filling.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Have ready, one 9" unbaked vegan pastry crust

Blend in blender:
2 c. solid-pack canned pumpkin (if you use home-cooked pumpkin, drain it for
several hours hanging in a cloth bag, so it's thick like canned pumpkin)
1 c. non-dairy milk (preferably a rich soymilk)
3/4 c. brown sugar or Sucanat
1/4 c. cornstarch
1 T. molasses or blackstrap molasses
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. EACH ground ginger, nutmeg and salt
1/4 tsp. ground allspice or cloves

Pour the filling into the pastry and bake 60 minutes, covering the edges with foil if they begin to brown too quickly. Cool on a rack, then refrigerate overnight before serving.

My boys do not like Turkey so we also do Ham, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Dressing, Green Bean Casserole, Cranberry Sauce, Yams, Homemade Rolls.

For Christmas we do Prime Rib Roast or Ham. Cheesy potatoes, a red cabbage dish my mother-in-law bottles each year and again, homemade rolls.

All this talk about food is making me hungry....Can't wait!!!

This thread is making me hungry! For Thanksgiving we do the traditional turkey, ham, stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, usually corn, rolls. Some times I make baked mac and cheese and bring it over. Of course pies: pumpkin and pecan. There is often fudge and cookies as well.

For Christmas, we are much less traditional. We have been known to have breakfast food or chili!
