Thanksgiving Recipe Round-up!

In a little under a week it will be Thanksgiving!  Are you ready yet?

I know for many this is the kick-off to what will be a crazy month of cooking, shopping, decorating, and enjoying family and friends.  For my family Thanksgiving is filled with tradition, from mom’s roast turkey to my pumpkin cheesecake.  Along with all out traditional food favorites I always like to throw in something new – perhaps a tradition of its own.  So, while we finish up our meal plans I thought I would share with you a few of my fall favorites for Thanksgiving.  These dishes that are perfect for the season!


We usually have some snacks sitting out for the family to nibble on while the last of the food is being prepared.  It keeps the hungry mob away from the cooling turkey anyway!

Roasted Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato and Maple Soup

Jalapeno Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms

Beef Empanadas

Main Dishes:

At our Thanksgiving table you will find the traditional turkey, but we also have a second meat dish for those who like some variety.  These are both easy to prepare and welcome additions to any holiday menu.

Cranberry Chipotle Glazed Ham

Slow-Cooker Braised Short Ribs with Honey Garlic Glaze

Side Dishes:

I am the Queen of Side Dishes, meaning I prepare most of the sides enjoyed during Thanksgiving.  These are a few family favorites.

Tex-Mex Macaroni and Cheese

Four Cheese Potato Gratin

Bacon Dressed Green Beans


What Turkey Day meal is complete with out a dessert?  I always make a pumpkin cheesecake, but I always make something else.  The following are a few of my 2nd dessert favorites.

Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie

Pumpkin Cupcakes

Bananas Foster Cream Pie

    What time is the feast?! And more importantly, what time is the chocolate chip pecan pie making it’s appearance?

    I like the Southwestern touch to some of these recipes. A little more heat, the Chipotle glaze, the Empanadas – it all sounds fabulous! Have a wonderful turkey day.
