From everyone here at DishBliss and Paradise we’d like to wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and wonderful New Year.

Merry Christmas

2018 gave us great advancements in culinary technology, waves of new flavors and food trends, and a preview of innovation to come. 2019 promises to show even more ingenuity and passion for food and flavor. I hate to say it, but I really can’t wait for the new year to arrive!

In the meantime, we hope all our wonderful readers and partners have a chance to spend some quality time with their friends and families and reflect on a year well spent. Recharge those batteries as best you can, because I have a feeling January is going to hit the ground running!

And just for fun, if you’re looking for some fun dishes for the festive season, check out the unique recipes below. Feel free to add some of your favorites in the comments or just drop a note. You know we’d love to hear from you.

Ancho Chile Pumpkin Pie

Thanksgiving isn’t complete without at least 1 pumpkin pie. And this one’s a zinger! Ancho-chiles (I’d recommend a puree over dried powder for more flavor) are added to the mix for a smoky, somewhat fruity pepper taste. See the recipe here.

 

 

 

 

 

I hope these recipes help inspire you to twist up your Thanksgiving menu this year. From all of us at Dish-Bliss and Paradise Tomato Kitchens, happy Thanksgiving!
