This year our family is hosting friends in our new little place. We are really making the best of the holidays by making it a memorable time together! I want to take our holidays from good to great so I am menu planning, thinking make ahead dishes and my new favorite semi-homemade!

The Hubs is great at helping out in the kitchen. He takes care of the main course. I enjoy making savory and sweet sides and desserts. Some are themed and some are just perfect for the season. But to save myself time and money I’m shopping at Walmart, where I can pick up all my holiday essentials from meal ingredients, home décor, and other holiday goodies! The best part is being able to make the holidays memorable with little effort and great savings!

I picked up a few pies for the holidays. Walmart has all our favorite Sara Lee® Pies in the frozen section and pumpkin continues to be everyone’s favorite! To make things a little different, I wanted to share a new twist to the classic Sara Lee Oven Fresh Pumpkin Pie!

With a few ingredients and a few make ahead steps you can wow the crowd with this Caramel Whipped Cream Pumpkin Pie!
