Thanksgiving 2015

I'm alive!  Spending time with my grandchildren in Denver this Thanksgiving.  Wishing I had posted many wonderful recipes to share with you.  Once again we continue to make our favorite dishes for Thanksgiving.  Our meal isn't complete without fresh cranberry relish.  I hope you enjoy my little reminder of our holiday fav's.  

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving.  


It's not too late to create a fabulous Thanksgiving feast.  Here are some of my favorites that I can't live without:

Fresh Cranberry Relish

Raspberry Honey Butter

Kale Brussels Sprout Salad

Apple Sour Cream Pie

Pecan Chocolate Tart  (last year I ate the entire tart)

For super simple and fast:

Peach Cranberry Crisp

Southern Yams

 Roast Turkey with Apple Cider Thyme Gravy

Roasted Asparagus with Browned Butter 

Go ahead...serve ham too.

Have a great feast.


  1. Wondered where you have been at! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    1. Your sweet. I'm the worst. I will return....soon?

  2. I wonder everyday if you are alive, I'm glad to hear it!!! I hope you are doing well! Still love all the recipes you've posted. I made your chewy gingersnap cookies and everyone LOVED them!!

    1. Oh Matt's favorite cookies ever! Thanks for keeping in touch. I will be back! I want to get up at least one post before Christmas, but I'm just not sure. The big Star Wars movie is next week and Ryan will be in town. I'm so excited. Thank Phil for planning a great reunion for all the old buddies/nerds. xoxo

    I just checked your blog and was so HAPPY to see another post! I love your blog. Everything about it. You are so talented. I love to cook and I love to take pictures but I could never make a blog look so beautiful so for now, I will just check back to see yours! Also, thank you for inspiring me to jump back into running again. I am now training for the Phoenix marathon and it has been so fun. You know, the early stages when it is fun and exciting. Keep posting because you just do such a fantastic job and I know there are so many who benefit from your blog. Thanks again! Your friend in Arizona!

    1. I'm so thrilled you are running the Phoenix marathon. You have such beautiful weather to train in. It's cold and snowy here. It's hard to get excited about training for anything, but I love getting out in the fresh air every morning. I wish you the best of luck. I'm sorry I've been absent. I just needed a break I'd love to get up a post of two before Christmas, but...... I'll be back. I have missed blogging and wonderful people like you.

  4. Very nice recipe! Happy holiday!
