So as it gets closer to American Thanksgiving and other winter holidays, I thought it would be nice to share easy recipes that you use for the endless parties, entertaining, and family get-togethers at this time of year. While we all have our elaborate favorites, we also have those last minute invitations where we scramble to put something together while we try to shower, feed the dogs, clean the house, dress the kids, etc.  Share your go-to time savers with the rest of us.

Here's a very easy (and yummy recipe) I just found:

Chocolate Satin Pie:

Ingredients:
1 9" graham cracker crust
1 can evaporated milk
2 large egg yolks
2 cups chocolate chips (We used Ghiardelli 60% cacao)
whipped cream
1/4 cup chopped nuts

Whisk together evaporated milk and egg yolks in medium saucepan.  Heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is hot and thickens slightly (about 5 minutes).  Do not boil.  Remove from heat and stir in chocolate  chips until completely melted and mixture is smooth.

Pour into crust; refrigerate 3 hours or until firm.  Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with nuts before serving.

I haven't tried it, but I suspect you could use other flavors of chip, like white chocolate or mint as long as they melt smoothly.  Chocolate shavings instead of nuts would probably also be good.

I copied down the recipe. I'm going to try it with chocolate mint chips, since my husband absolutely loves mint. Thanks for posting the recipe!

Oh, I'm going to have to try that! (I read it wrong the first time, I thought it was chocolate Satan pie.  Grin


I've got one:

Pumpkin Topping:

Use in place of whipped cream on pumkin pie:

3 oz pkg of softened cream cheese
1/4 tsp gound cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
8 oz tub of non-dairy whipped topping (Cool-whip)
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
Dash of cloves

Beat cream cheese and sugar until well blended. Stir in all remaining ingredieants except whipped topping. Fold in whipped topping. Makes about 2 1/2 cups.


This can also be used as a dip for gingerbread cookies or cinnamon graham crackers. Or spoon it into those mini graham cracker pie shells for tiny pie-like treats.

This is not a holiday recipe as such, I guess, but we only ever make it at the holidays for some reason.  It's my mom's recipe; I have no idea where she got it from.

Pink Coconut Candy

1 block softened cream cheese
1 box powdered sugar (1lb, I think)
coconut to taste
1 tsp strawberry extract or other flavoring
red food coloring to taste

Mix everything together. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper and let sit for four hours or until set.  (WARNING:  High humidity will make it difficult or impossible to get these to set properly.  What they're really doing is drying, and if there's too much moisture in the air they can't dry...)

If you can find the boxes of strawberry powdered sugar, you can use that and omit the flavoring and food coloring.

I don't know that this is a TIME saver, per se, but it's definitely an effort saver:

Really Good Turkey

--Get turkey (or turkey breast) of choice, make sure all thawed, etc., preheat oven and prepare to cook turkey for appropriate amount of time.

--Set turkey in roasting pan. Take 1 to 2 lbs. of bacon (depending on size of turkey) -- fattier is better -- and lay strips all over turkey until bird as completely covered as possible.

The fat melts as the bacon cooks and it bastes the turkey FOR you, so you don't have to do anything at all. It also gives the skin a nice dark color. The turkey comes out beautifully moist and the skin has a bacony bit of flavor. And whoever is stuck with the carving gets to eat the crispy bacon bits that fall off!
