Thanksgiving Recipes! Thanksgiving Links!

I’m busy thinking about Thanksgiving in Paris having celebrated it a couple weeks ago in all it’s awesome glory. I think I was recovering from a food coma while running an 8K… Bad decision- what? Never!

Thanksgiving is in full swing back at home in Dallas despite a doom inducing snowstorm of a possible 1cm ground coverage. It’s actually colder in Texas than it is in Paris right now. bahahaha!

Are you still looking for a Thanksgiving menu? Check out the menu of our Thanksgiving meal a couple weeks ago. The post contains links to different great recipes as well including a make-ahead gravy recipe and an entirely from scratch green bean casserole.

Also take a look at my Grandmother’s stuffing recipe. We’ve been making it for years and it is delicious.

Compilation of Thanksgiving Recipes/Ideas:

The Simplest, Easiest Method for Cooking a Turkey from The Kitchn

Curious how much Turkey to estimate per person?

Thanksgiving Recipes from the Pioneer Woman in all their Southern Glory

I even found a link on suggestions of what to wear to head the Food-baby bump. Completely serious. haha!

Love this idea from Occasions Online. Skewer cranberries, freeze, and add to a glass of champagne to keep it cold!

Step by Step (with Times) Thanksgiving Prep for a Make-Ahead Meal

Cute Cute DIY Place Card Holders. This one is by Almost Makes Perfect turkey-place-card

Treats for the big day? I stand by the pumpkin pie recipe on the Libby’s Pumpkin Puree can. :-) Make it triple easy and throw in a pre-made pie crust by Pillsberry. Blasphemy you say! ok ok- Pies are the way to go for Thanksgiving but you can do other things. I have quite the soft spot for pumpkin…

Maybe a Pumpkin Trifle from Dashing Dish?

A Pumpkin Spice Latte Cheesecake from Pastry Affair is also acceptable. :-D

Love my friend Jen’s idea to make these pie bars from Food & Wine- pumpkin, pecan, or lemon cranberry! Easy to serve to large crowds.

And I’m completely in Love with this cake from Sweetapolita: The Autumn Delight Cake.

Last but not least- what to do if you drop that pumpkin pie? Thank you SousStyle Male Mondays. haha!!! This is for you Tina.

Check out my Thanksgiving~Gobble Gobble Pinterest board for more ideas. I’ll be adding to it throughout the week.

Stay warm!

  1. So much cute stuff – oh my goodness, I LOVE the place cards…dang, maybe I’m going to do an impromptu Thanksgiving after all! BWAH!

  2. On a whim, I made individual pumpkin cheesecakes tonight… yum! And so easy! (though I subbed sweet potato for pumpkin, as I had some extra puree in the freezer)

    I found the recipe on Dessert for Two: http://www.dessertfortwo.com/2012/10/pumpkin-cheesecake/

  3. i need to do the cranberry skewers!!! so cute :)

    I made a pumpkin cheesecake too! The pie bars are a work in progress at this moment – they will be completed tonight
