I’m guessing you are not surprised that Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday at Gygi. Food is a big deal for us and you can be sure we will be participating as much as possible. From our annual Pie Preparation Night, to our delicious traditional meal, we have tested and tried just about every kitchen tool you’ll need to be prepared for the big day.
It is no secret that we at Gygi love chocolate. It lifts us up and never lets us down.
This Mummy Pepper Popper recipe is a delicious twist on a classic appetizer.
