With Thanksgiving in just a few days and my super serious diet on hold, I thought I would post up a few alternatives to the old pumpkin pie for the holidays. I'm not much of a cook, nor can I bake, so Jennea, darling, Cottage Cheese Pie please!
First, we have the Fig Goat Cheese Pie with Basil. It's hard to go wrong with figs and goat cheese. Of course, this mini-pie recipe is perfect to prevent that holiday weight.
The Cottage Cheese Pie, my personal favorite, should definitely satisfy your sweet tooth. The chocolatey crumb crust combined with cottage cheese makes for a satisfying dessert after your endless plates of turkey.

There's nothing more I look forward to every year than the sweet cornea and creamy sclera on the eyeballs served on Halloween. Throw that eyeball on a cracker and you should be good to go. Maybe even pass them out to the zombies that come to your doorstep on the night of Halloween. As the new intern here at Culture Magazine, I thought it may be best to share one of my favorite holiday treats.
