A Southern Season: Chapel Hill North Carolina

I’m a good food junkie! Couple that with a fondness for shopping and you have the perfect storm at A Southern Season. Since I have been visiting North Carolina I make this a routine stop for tea in the am. They have an incredible selection of tea, know just how long to brew it, and make great blends. I like to get my cup of tea then stroll the isles and see what’s on the shelves. There is an incredible selection of just about anything culinary you can think of from edible to the well made pots, pans, and utensils you might need to cook up all the fabulous ingredients. On this particular day I was at the store it was Thanksgiving tasting day. Yum-mee! I let it all go on Thanksgiving and this year will be no exception. My usual favorite desert is a little chocolate cake from a company called Gateau in St. Petersburg Florida. It’s made gluten free with the finest organic fair trade ingredients. This year I will be topping it off with a little Pumpkin Mousse.

Here is how you make it: Pumkin Mousse Recipe

1 pint whipped cream

fold 1/2 can organic pumpkin puree ( can sub for sweet potato puree)

1 tsp all-spice

1/4 cup maple syrup

whip up the cream and fold i the rest top on your favorite dessert. This is heaven!
