I LOOOOOOOOOve Thanksgiving! It combines all of my favorite things, delicious food, beautiful decorations, family time, friend time and fun (maybe this year I can convince someone to play a board game or two with me 😉 ).
Thanksgiving at for us is a big celebration, where a lot of friends and family gather together at my parents house and we cook, laugh, eat and just simply hang out . It’s always fun! Check out my post about Thanksgiving last year.
Last year, I laid out our plan of how to feed and entertain such a large group of people. So this year, I wanted to do something different, so I spent some time looking around the web for a few new dishes for us to try and I thought, I’d share some with you. Here you go…
Oh and btw, not all of these recipes are “healthy” but hey, this is Thanksgiving, 1day out of 365days so I am going to indulge, because honestly that is “normal” eating. After all, there should be a gentleness and an ebb&flow in any a healthy eating, body-lovin’, life-enjoying lifestyle. Do you follow me?
Ok, now, here you go…
These look so decadent and delicious!
I’m a sucker for a cheese ball, so this is a no brainer and this one is so pretty to boot!
These are just so pretty and look delicious
I am a sucker for any baked brie recipe…I want it in my mouth like, now!

Anything That says Salted Caramel is a Must!
These can be boozy or non-boozy, you choose, but definitely choose…because these look A.MA.ZING!
I love Sangria! This looks like you can serve this at Thanksgiving and Christmas!
The Main Meal
This is my fav Thanksgiving Side
This recipe looks really similar to the Sweet Potato Casserole my friend Sara always brings…it’s yum!
These mashed potatoes include mashed cauliflower, giving them a delicious nutritional boost
These are Gluten free and look delicious!
This is a healthier, cleaner alternative to traditional Green Bean Casserole
We made this last year, and it was delish! Definitely making a reappearance this year!
Apple Cider & Citrus Turkey Brine with Herbs for your Bird
Honestly, I have no control over how our bird is handled (my dad’s job) but if I was in charge, this is what I would make!
I am making this, this year, doesn’t it sound amazing!
I mean…come on…
I don’t know what Corn cake is, but this cake is so lovely, I will eat it, whatever it is!
