Thanksgiving Recipe Round Up 2015!!

This is going to be my only post this week. I am super busy shopping, cleaning, and baking! We’re hosting Thanksgiving this year so I’ve got a lot going on.

I’m rounding up my Thanksgiving recipes… if you are looking for some last minute ideas you can look here!

Starting first with our family’s favorite Thanksgiving appetizer… caramelized apple, onion, and gruyere tart bites!! OM NOM NOM

Apple, onion, and gruyere tart bites

 Another appetizer choice is pear, blue cheese, and anaheim pepper bites… they are topped with toasted walnuts!

 The easiest option of these three bites are these cranberry, brie, and thyme bites! I love the Thanksgiving flavors in these!

If your oven is full, try making this cranberry salsa.  It’s tangy but sweet. It’s also my #1 recipe pin on pinterest.

These homemade onion rolls were a hit last year. They are good! You can make the dough beforehand.

This is a nice healthier alternative to plain ol’ mashed potatoes.  It’s mashed cauliflower with a potato or two thrown in. Although, I still prefer mashed potatoes 😀

This is a nice vegetable side dish you can serve.  Plus, it adds some pretty color to your table!

Autumn Roasted Carrots

If you’re one to serve salad at Thanksgiving, this is a nice Fall harvest salad. It has cranberries, apples, pecans, and a honey mustard dressing.

If you’re a soup person, this is a nice soup to serve for Thanksgiving.  It could also be the “main dish” for your vegetarian friends.

German Pumpkin Soup (Kurbissuppe)

If you serve multiple pies at Thanksgiving or are not a pumpkin pie person, this is a GREAT apple pie.  It is so so good, I highly recommend it.

Or, if you want to try something different, make pumpkin pie (aka pumpkin cheesecake) macarons! These are best served the day AFTER you bake them … which means you can make them ahead of time!

Hopefully you found a recipe you want to try this year!

    All of these look scrumptious, but the first two doubly so. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family.
