Thanksgiving Menu

This year, I’ll be trying out a whole slew of recipes from some very talented cooks, bakers, bloggers and a couple publications for my Thanksgiving dishes. A few are my own and one is my mom’s, and I hope to post those recipes in the future. But for now, I wanted to provide everyone with a complete list in case anyone else is feeling inspired!

I hope everyone has a yummy week. 🙂

      Those would be the sweet potato and apple potstickers! They are amaze-balls. But they aren’t balls. They are amaze-dumps. Well, that just doesn’t sound appetizing.

    Wow! What an amazing menu! I am inspired… but perhaps not quite as ambitious 😉 I hope you have a wonderful celebration! I’m sure you will with all of this yumminess going on 🙂
