Thanksgiving Traditions #2

This is the second part of my Thanksgiving Traditional Menu! I hope you have a wonderful, food-filled, family-filled, happy holiday!

Thanksgiving Traditions #1

Happy Thanksgiving!

These pictures were from last year's Thanksgiving at our friend's home. We have gone to their home for Thanksgiving and they have come to our home for Passover. This year we actually are trying something new, we are going to Wisconsin to visit family for the holiday. I can't wait for the traditional meal with my family. 

 These are a few of my favorite traditional Thanksgiving recipes.  Enjoy!

To be Glazed or Not To Be Glazed

For the first time in many many years, my family is leaving home for Thanksgiving.  I am always a stickler for keeping out well worn-in and truly loved traditions for holidays. So we are taking our family recipes and menus with us!  But sometimes things change and a new recipe can make its way into your traditions... this one snuck in last year. I hope you all have great Thanksgiving and let a new recipe or two make its way into your own traditions.

Pre-Thanksgiving Fall Hash

  • This was one of my favorite pre-Thanksgiving dishes from last year. I made it for a family dinner and it was a total hit; we could have finished off  the entire dish!

Comfort in the Kitchen: The Perfect Beginers Recipe for Holiday Treats

I am going to be out of town this weekend for a wedding, so this week has been very hectic and busy with last minute preparations for a weekend in Chicago. I this is really the first time I have had off since the Nantucket trip in August. So I am delighted to have a full weekend off work and away from home. I will be gone for a full 48 hours and hopefully I will be able to get some great pictures while we are in the city.

Cookie Calamity

The perfect cookie

 I have just spent my entire Tuesday and Wednesday in my kitchen baking up a storm. Which is why there is a war path of mini marshmallows, confectioners sugar, flour, cocoa powder, acorn squash, spiced pear butter and cranberries everywhere from my counters to my floors. So with freezer packed and pantry fully stocked, I can say that I am almost ready for Thanksgiving.

 I have already made my way through 1/2 of a roast turkey and mashed potatoes... next week we will make spiced cranberry sauce and stuffing. Pies, scones and cookies will be baked the week before Thanksgiving. All is wonderful and along with Thanksgiving is coming one of my favorite things in the world...
