Sweet Potato Recipes for the Holidays
From Our Homes to Yours...Enjoy!
It is a tradition to have “Appetizer Day” at our Publisher, Elizabeth Millen’s home each year prior to the November magazine coming out. This year, we decided to shake things up a bit and have a “Dessert Day” instead. For Dessert Day, the entire Pink Magazine staff chose their favorite dessert recipe, prepared it, and brought it to share, along with the recipe, of course! To add to the fun, we gathered an impressive, eclectic assortment of serving trays from our wonderful advertisers in order to beautifully present our creations. This also allows us to show you that if we can do it, so can you.
Before we shared in the feast, each dessert was given star treatment, as it is groomed, garnished and styled for its very own photo shoot. The house was filled with delightful aromas and bustling with people coming in with their delicious desserts. It got us all excited for the upcoming holiday season.
It's What's for Dinner!
The only thing that should spook you in the autumn is Halloween. Hearty cool-weather foods like beans and other legumes, though, have frightened more than a few cooks.
It's What's for Dinner!
Did your parents ever say "Make sure you eat your fruits and vegetables so you will grow big and strong?" Of course, because they contain vital nutrients for our body to function. Another important food group carries many nutrients that are essential—protein. And lean beef is the best way to get it! Beef has 10 essential nutrients that will help do more than just get through the day—they can help you be the best you can be.

Nutritious and Delicious!
While this cake looks pretty plain, it is a family favorite, absolutely delicious and loved from coast-to-coast. It’s a crave food and a no-fail stand-by. My mother’s best friend asks her to bake this cake when her brother-in-law visits from California because he talks about it every time he plans a trip to Carolina. Moist, lemony and a delightful blend of flavors, this cake is a perfect accompaniment for brunch, lunch, bridge club, or as a scrumptious dessert served after dinner with a little vanilla ice cream.
Tasty Treats for Tailgating
Tailgating in the South is nothing short of an art. Walk through any southern stadium parking area on game day and you’re sure to see anything and everything from custom grills to white tablecloths and sterling silver candelabras. What you may not recognize, however, are the long traditions behind each and every group’s tailgate. Some have had the same parking space for decades, passed down through generations of families. Others have tried-and-true game day recipes. For instance, I’ve never been to a South Carolina game without Bob and Janet Keen’s Lil’ Smokies pig-n-the-blankets. It just wouldn’t be the same.

Enjoy a Behind-the-Scenes Look of Belfair
Nestled in the heart of Bluffton, Belfair Plantation sits quietly off the highway eluding to scenic views and beautiful homes. The graceful entrance bids the viewer a taste of the charm that lies within. After driving past Belfair nearly every day, I was very excited for the opportunity to learn more about the plantation, and most of all, take a behind-the-scenes look at the magic that happens in their renowned kitchen.
Salad is usually an accompaniment. But what if you turn the tables and make it the star of the meal? The beginning of summer is the perfect time for such a light and refreshing option.
Many of us have participated in wine tastings. For a fun and equally informative change of pace, why not a lettuce tasting? A rut often accompanies lettuce—many diners eat the same one repeatedly.
