Tick tock…tick tock!
Only two more days till Turkey Day!
Have you decided what you’re making yet?
How about a few ideas?
In an effort to figure out what I’M making this year, I went back and searched through some of my old recipes (and finally got some of them transferred over to my Recipage!) and figured maybe there are a few of you out there who are still don’t have a plan.
I may specialize in #pancakeporn, but I do know a thing or two when it comes to healthy sides…
Caramelized Onion, Cranberry & Kale Saute
Balsamic Green Beans with Mushrooms & Onions
A couple of traditional desserts…
Whole Wheat Cinnamon Banana Bread
Everything but the Sugar Oatmeal Cookies
And maybe a few “non-traditional” ones! 😉
Mint Chocolate Chip Dessert Hummus
All my US readers, what are you making for Thanksgiving this year?
Everyone else, how’s your week going? 😉
All of these look great Heather! I want to try your Sweet Broccoli Salad, looks perfect for a healthy dish to have at a party. Have a happy thanksgiving!
Oh it’s great! I’ve taken it to a few potlucks and gotten nothing but compliments! Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Natalie! 🙂
The green beans look amazing!! I might try those 🙂
ok that last recipe has me very interested!! Though Im pretty sure everyone in my family would look at me like Im a freak, not that they dont already lol
Im planning on bringing along my edamame, feta and cranberry salad and maybe my quinoa salad as well. Im so excited to make my parents try them! They promised me they would at least have a bite 😉
Haha, you sound like me…I’m always trying to turn my parents on to new foods! My dad is the worst though…he’s as picky as a toddler! That edamame salad sounds good…why have I never paired cranberry and feta before? And yeah, the whole freak thing? My family barely bats an eye anymore…well, unless it’s something I’m trying to make THEM eat! Lol
I’m drooling over all these pictures! I can’t wait for Thanksgiving!!
Uhhhh… I’m coming to YOUR house for Thanksgiving! I’ll take one of everything, please. 🙂
Loaded baked potato salad? I’ll have a giant bowl of that please! 😉
All of these Thanksgiving posts on blogs this week are making me so jealous!
Haha, now you know how WE felt when you guys had your Thanksgiving! 😉
Aaand I want all of these. Although I still have my doubts about dessert hummuses. Hummi? I don’t know.
Hummi…most definitely. The trick is to make sure you add enough sweetener…if you skimp too much, you’ll be able to taste the beans. But seriously, I made peanut butter chocolate chip bean cookies for a work potluck one time and NOBODY could guess the “secret”!
That dessert hummus looks so good! I love mixing things into desserts that aren’t normally there. For Thanksgiving this year (Canadian), my mum made pumpkin pie with lentil and chocolate cake with chickpeas. Delish!
Pumpkin pie with lentils? No way! That’s awesome!
The mint hummus has me intrigued, must try it.
This year we’re going rogue and having a ham on Thursday, then a turkey next week with family. Love the leftovers!
Oh my gosh, I think I look forward to the leftovers even more! Haha!
Love the mint hummus…definitely something a bit different! And if you like the flavor of carrot cake, you should try my carrot cake dessert hummus (which is what the carrot cake cookies are based off of) http://www.kissmybroccoliblog.com/2011/08/11/carrot-cake-hummus/
I want that broccoli salad and dessert hummus in my belly asap! haha
It was great talking to you today. Hopefully I will be making my way to nashville at some point soon! 🙂
Please call/message anytime!!
Oh I hope so! Will you be coming along with the bf for his interview in January? Maybe we could meet up for lunch! 😀
Not gonna lie – I was incredibly tempted to lick my screen as soon as I saw the cinnamon banana bread. If I wasn’t in the middle of a crowded coffee shop, I probably would have. No Thanksgiving for us up here in Canada (sad face), so this week is just another boring one for me. Work, blog, eat, sleep, repeat 😉
Oh my word! All this deliciousness in one post. Tease!!
I’ve got big cooking plans for Thanksgiving, and I haven’t started a thing (gulp), and it involves homemade pie(s) and stuffed acorn squash. I better get my @ss in the kitchen.
