Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup

It seems that I have lost my blogging mojo lately.  My entire household has been sick since Halloween, so it's been difficult to find the time to do any sewing or crafting, let alone blog about it.  But with Thanksgiving only two days away, I wanted to share a few recipes that would be perfect to add to your holiday table.

The Pioneer Woman's Dinner Rolls - I made these for Christmas Eve dinner with the in-laws last year and they received rave reviews!  I'll be making a batch to take over to my sister's house for dinner on Saturday.

Pumpkin Crunch Cake by Cara at The Picky Apple - This custardy pumpkin cake will be another of my contributions to our Thanksgiving dinner.  I cannot wait to dig into this dessert!

Melissa's Brussels Sprouts - Having eaten these too many times to count while pregnant with Jake, I can vouch for this amazing brussels sprouts recipe, also from The Picky Apple.  I may need to make a pan of these to bring along to our family dinner too.  They are delicious!

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes by Sweet Pea's Kitchen - A new twist on the traditional sweet potato casserole, these individual stuffed sweet potatoes would make a great side dish for your holiday turkey or ham.

And finally, a little crafting for the kiddos...

Flower Turkeys by Our Best Bites - These adorable little turkeys make from artificial flowers would be a great project to keep the kids busy while you're in the kitchen.  I think these little guys are too cute and would make a great table decoration or napkin ring.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families and friends!

  4. Wow! Those stuffed sweet potatoes look delicious! What a great idea!

  5. those sprouts look so good! We used to make something similar at one of my old jobs, adding figs and pecans.
