OK. Thanksgiving. Oof. It’s less than a week away. Are we ready?? I just wrote out my TO-DO list and thankfully it’s not as bad because I got older/wiser and decided to divvy up responsibilities. I’ve got turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, dinner roll & gravy duty this year. Oh and I’m gonna add a few appetizers as well. The cleaning the house part is what I’m worried about most. But that’s a whole other post all together! If you’re looking for some fail-proof/no fuss recipes, I dug into my archives for you.
Thanksgiving, WE GOT YOU!
Thanksgiving wouldn’t be thanksgiving without my mom’s Baked Artichoke squares. The best part is that you can totally make these the night before & reheat. My mom is bringing these this year! Yahoooo.
Don’t they look pretty?! The colors will brighten up an appetizer assortment.
I was thinking that you could make these into soup shooters & pass them around as appetizers. YUM
If I get my act together I’m gonna make these this Thanksgiving!
Serve fresh flatbread with a cheese plater and you’re golden!
Make these baby taquitos in advance and then heat them up in the oven. They’re addictive.
So simple yet BOLD. People will be touched at your effort…they don’t have to know it’s easy!
Who doesn’t like a bowl of spiced nuts?
Your cheese platter is BEGGING for them.
If you’re looking for an awesome/unique salad, this one is your winner!
I mean…just DO IT.
You’re guests will love this combo! There are cranberries up in it too! This is a real hit with my readers!
I would be so happy if a little gravy crossed paths with this dish!
You could serve these milkshakes in addition to your dessert. Imagine them in mini glasses. Perfect!
It’s clove season! Let’s warm up the holidays with a nice clove/sugar rimmed cocktail.
Holiday parties should have signature cocktails, don’t ya think?
Something for the kids if you take out the bourbon and something to make your old Aunt Bessie tolerable if you feel like adding bourbon.
I can’t think of a better cocktail to have with turkey!
For the in between dessert & dinner time….
They’re small…which means that people who are STUFFED will be like “Oh, I’ll just take one!”
Then their ONE turns into 4. WATCH OUT.
Thanksgiving doesn’t have to always been about pie! You can make cheesecakes!
Get people excite for December with this Sticky Cranberry Gingerbread. I think I ate half of this cake when I made it.
Look at you! Rocking everyone’s world with a PUMPKIN DOUGHNUT. Who needs pie?
Imagine scoops in little glasses…served with a dollop of whipped cream & some pralines. OMG.
You could easily turn this recipe into cupcakes. Your guests will LOVE the brown butter icing & moist cake.
You just gotta. This one has a gingersnap crust! It’s light/ fluffy and you don’t have to bake the final pie.
If you’re one of those hosts or guests who likes to give loaves as presents, MAKE THIS BREAD.
