Did you know pumpkin pie is not just for Thanksgiving? I would eat it year round if it were up to me. We have pumpkin pie on Christmas as well. But, we're gonna spice it up this year!
In this Nocciolata Swirl Pumpkin Pie, a gingersnap crust hosts a traditional pumpkin pie filling that’s swirled with an organic chocolate hazelnut spread.
Nocciolata Swirl Pumpkin Pie
For the Crust:
1 and 1/2 cups gingersnap cookie crumbs
2 Tablespoons sugar
5 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
For the Filling:
3 large eggs, room temperature
15 ounce can pure pumpkin
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Nocciolata, warmed
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 9 or 8-inch pie dish with nonstick spray. Set aside. Grind up gingersnap cookies into a fine crumb. Mix with melted butter, and sugar. Press into bottom of prepared pie dish and about halfway up the sides. Bake crust for 10 minutes and cool slightly. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the remaining ingredients (except for the Nocciolata) and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into pie crust. Drop spoonfuls of warmed Nocciolata onto pie and swirl gently with a knife. Bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes or until the filling is set. The center will still look wet but will not "jiggle" too much. Allow to cool completely and serve at room temperature.
Nocciolata is made with organic ingredients completely free of GMO's, preservatives, colors, additives, or artificial sweeteners. It combines hazelnuts, fair trade cocoa and cocoa butter, natural vanilla extract, skimmed milk, and raw cane sugar for a chocolate-hazelnut spread with undeniably superior flavor. It is made with environmentally-responsible cold-pressed sunflower oil. It also contains far less sugar than other brands and is free from hydrogenated fats.

When Prince wanted to document his One Nite Alone tour in 2002, he turned to Afshin Shahidi. Again in 2004, he went along on Prince's record breaking Musicology Tour. Afshin met Prince in 1989 and became his cinematographer and later his photographer. He was the photographer closest to Prince for the last fifteen years of Prince's life. Afshin is the only photographer to shoot the legendary 3121 private parties in Los Angeles that became the most sought after invitations in Hollywood. Prince: A Private View compiles his work into a journey through Prince's extraordinary life. With many never-before-seen photos, this is the ultimate collection of – some intimate, some candid, some in concert – shots of Prince, but all are carefully directed in the artist-as-art style that we associate with him. Deep photo captions are brief, but complete stories about Prince's life at that moment - some are incisive, others are personal and even funny.
About The Author:
Afshin Shahidi, an Iranian-born, American photographer and filmmaker, has worked worldwide on a depth and variety of projects, ranging from films and documentaries, to music videos and commercials. Early in his career, he worked as a camera assistant on Prince’s music video sets in Minnesota. Afshin lives in Los Angeles with his wife and three children and continues to create art at any and all cost, in the spirit of his mentor.
Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe from New York Times bestselling author, Melissa de la Cruz, is a sweet, sexy, and hilarious gender-swapping, genre-satisfying re-telling, set in contemporary America and featuring one snooty Miss Darcy. Darcy Fitzwilliam is 29, beautiful, successful, and brilliant. She dates hedge-funders and basketball stars and is never without her three cellphones - one for work, one for play, and one to throw at her assistant (just kidding). Darcy’s never fallen in love, never has time for anyone else’s drama, and never goes home for Christmas if she can help it. But when her mother falls ill, she comes home to Pemberley, Ohio, to spend the season with her family. Her parents throw their annual Christmas bash, where she meets one Luke Bennet, the smart, sardonic slacker son of their neighbor. Luke is 32-years-old and has never left home. He’s a carpenter and makes beautiful furniture, and is content with his simple life. He comes from a family of five brothers, each one less ambitious than the other. When Darcy and Luke fall into bed after too many eggnogs, Darcy thinks it’s just another one night stand. But why can’t she stop thinking of Luke? What is it about him? And can she fall in love, or will her pride and his prejudice against big-city girls stand in their way?
About The Author:
Melissa de la Cruz is the #1 New York Times, #1 Publisher’s Weekly, and #1 IndieBound bestselling author of many critically acclaimed and award-winning novels for readers of all ages including the Disney Descendants novels, Alex and Eliza, Blue Bloods, and Witches of East End, a one-hour television drama on Lifetime. She lives in Los Angeles with her family.
A stunning new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author - an epic of hope and horror, chaos and magic, and a journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives…It began on New Year’s Eve. The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed - and more than half of the world’s population was decimated. Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river - or in the ones you know and love the most. As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive. In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain. The end has come. The beginning comes next.

Stevie Nicks is a legend of rock, but her energy and magnetism sparked new interest in this icon. At sixty-nine, she's one of the most glamorous creatures rock has known, and the rare woman who's a real rock ‘n' roller. Gold Dust Woman gives "the gold standard of rock biographers" (The Boston Globe) his ideal topic: Nicks' work and life are equally sexy and interesting, and Davis delves deeply into each, unearthing fresh details from new, intimate interviews and interpreting them to present a rich new portrait of the star. Just as Nicks (and Lindsey Buckingham) gave Fleetwood Mac the "shot of adrenaline" they needed to become real rock stars - according to Christine McVie - Gold Dust Woman is vibrant with stories and with a life lived large and hard: How Nicks and Buckingham were asked to join Fleetwood Mac and how they turned the band into stars. The affairs that informed Nicks' greatest songs. Her relationships with the Eagles' Don Henley and Joe Walsh, and with Fleetwood himself. Why Nicks married her best friend's widower. Her dependency on cocaine, drinking, and pot, but how it was a decade-long addiction to Klonopin that almost killed her. Nicks’ successful solo career that has her still performing in venues like Madison Square Garden. The cult of Nicks and its extension to chart-toppers like Taylor Swift and the Dixie Chicks.
About The Author:
Stephen Davis is America's preeminent rock journalist and biographer, having written numerous bestsellers on rock bands, including the smash hit Hammer of the Gods. He also collaborated with legendary musicians Levon Helm and Mick Fleetwood on their autobiographies. He lives in Boston.
