What’s On Your Thanksgiving Menu?

Well, it’s nearly that time of year. The time for us all to put on our fat pants and gorge ourselves on turkey and stuffing and cranberry sauce (blech!) and, of course, pumpkin pie. I’m excited.

Things have been hectic around here, so I don’t have a new recipe for you today, but I thought I’d link to a few of the recipes that are going on my Thanksgiving menu and a few that should be on yours. Ready?

sugar and spice nuts

First up, you should definitely consider serving these Candied Roasted Nuts as a little snack for people to munch on while they wait for the turkey to roast. People like nuts. It’s a fact.


If you’re looking for a good dip, you can’t go wrong with this Hot Corn Dip. Even people who don’t like onions (my husband!) eat this one. It’s good stuff. I’ll be making this and I tell you what, people better just stay away from it. It’s mine. All mine.

If you’re feeling adventurous and have a bit of time, these Potato Croquettes are a crowd pleaser and this recipe makes enough to feed an army.

Of course, you can’t have Thanksgiving without Deviled Eggs and my eggs come complete with bacon and cheddar cheese. Please make these. Do it for me.


If you’re tired of plain ol’ corn, give this Corn with Bacon and Cheddar a try. You won’t be sorry.


However, if you like your corn a little more traditional, you’ll enjoy this Scalloped Corn. I’ll be making Scalloped Corn this year. It’s the right thing to do.


As for desserts, I’m not going to recommend one. I’m going to recommend ALL of them. There’s raspberry pie, blackberry pie bars, strawberry gallettes, thick and fudgy brownies, cookies of all sorts, and a whole lot more.

Now go get out those fat pants and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
