Okay, I most certainly have to try the Pumpkin Chiffon Pie! And the Shrimp Dip sounds wonderful as well! Now the drink, I would've never thought to mix Mountain Dew and Cranberry Juice but it's worth a try. :)

Thanks so much for participating in my Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style recipe exchange. I really do appreciate it!

You know, I was just thinking and I'm not sure that I've ever tried pumpkin pie. Sounds wonderful.
