Harvest Pie

Thanksgiving is a week away and I’m already starting to prep for the holiday dinner. This year I’m all about spins on traditional dishes. So I am making this Harvest Pie which is a adapted from a recipe from True Food Kitchen my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. Merging all of my favorite fall roots vegetables together, butternut squash, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes, I developed a recipe that will satisfy everyones sweet tooth’s next week. This Harvest Pie is perfect for the lactose intolerant person in the family, like me because it uses coconut milk in the batter instead of regular milk.

 What are you serving at your Thanksgiving dinner next week?

Eight new recipes to try this Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away and it’s time to start planning your dinner menu. I’ve rounded up several traditional Thanksgiving recipes from my favorite blogs, chefs and magazines that have a twist. I’m personally not a huge fan of your traditional Thanksgiving sides like stuffing and cranberry sauce. So I decided to go out an search for traditional recipes with a modern twist that could please everyone at the dinner table. 

Thanksgiving stuffings

For the stuffing fans at your Thanksgiving table, they will enjoy these non-traditional options for a slow cooker stuffing and a butternut squash and barley version. 

Thanksgiving breads

I’m a huge lover of the bread basket at any family gathering. This year get creative and serve a variety of options like they do at some restaurants. Have a traditional Parkerhouse roll like the ones I made last year, but also try these cran-sage rolls from Better Homes and Gardens and these pull apart garlic herb rolls from Gather for Bread

mac and cheese thanksgiving alternatives

I look forward to having mac and cheese during the holiday season but it would be fun to switch the recipe up every once in a while. But a spin on the classic recipe by making butternut squash stuffed shells and a BLT mac and cheese

thanksgiving desserts

Dessert please! Desserts have to be my favorite part of Thanksgiving. I always go back for a second slice of sweet potato pie or red velvet cake. But I found two new crowd pleasing favorites to try this year, a bourbon pecan pumpkin pie and a no bake orange cranberry cheesecake

Maple Glazed Acorn Squash

Thanksgiving is next week and I’m hosting it at my condo for the first time this year.I’m a little nervous but looking forward to having my family at my home. This year I’m going for the healthy and simplicity route when it comes to my menu. I’m really loving squash at the moment and I am making this delicious recipe for Maple Glazed Acorn Squash as a side dish. The great about this recipe is that it’s easy to make and doesn’t require several ingredients. Using Maple syrup, cinnamon, all spice, and salt as a rub, your guests will be wishing they had more.
