Picture one: sweet Bourbon Pumpkin Cheesecake from the genius Smitten Kitchen


Thanksgiving stuff. I know, it's all around. The other day I thought it would be a fun idea to put together a list of thanksgiving dinner ideas; delicious things to make for your family and friends. If it were last year's me, this post wouldn't be written and up on the blog until April but I'm much more organized now (high-fiving a million angels). What I didn't know was that it would take soooooooooo sososososo long to find 25 recipes worth sharing. Not all of these are "traditional" but most have something that is somewhat holiday-ish or Thanksgiving-related in my mind. Like the salmon at n.6, you know? I saw 'maple' and thought, sure why NOT! Truth be told, I also prefer salmon to turkey anyway. Moving on. Expect a lot of pumpkin. A lot of glazed, bourbon, caramelized, maple, pomegranate, sage, brown butter... reoccurring words and tastes that I welcome into my blog and mouth.

Sidenote - I feel like an old person. My eyes hurt and I've zoomed the chrome screen into 125%. Is it just me or anyone else out there going to let me know I'm not alone?


  1. broccoli, cauliflower and pomegranate in tahini dressing, why not?
  2. three words: onion, fig, gruyere. YOU IN!?
  3. bourbon. pumpkin. cheesecake. 
  4. thin crust pear tart for a light dessert (in a way)
  5. cranberry rosemary spritzers, anyone?
  6. maple bourbon glazed salmon? say no more. I want this instead of turkey
  7. orange and pastis braised fennel - now this is something!
  8. simple brown butter biscuits to go with everything
  9. maybe start with a light ginger, apple, pumpkin soup
  10. these are my fav! glazed sweet potatoes with pecans
  11. more pumpkin, always! spice-kissed pumpkin pie
  12. uh... everything in this Friendsgiving
  13. pear almond galette oui oui
  14. caramelized shallots because I caramelize everything
  15. pomegranate & pear salad - something light and delicious
  16. pomegranate, sage... ignore whatever doesn't sound thanksgiving-y and make it!
  17. brussels sprouts salad with pomegranate
  18. pumpkin bourbon milkshake
  19. garlic mashed potatoes, yuuuum
  20. for the vegetarians (or lovers of tempeh, like me) maple grilled tempeh
  21. turkey... meatballs? festive? maybe not, but I'm into it
  22. thanksgiving roux bread here
  23. hmmmmm lemon and sage hot toddy
  24. rum and pomegranate roast duck - always! duck! yes!
  25. pumpkin pie with caramel brandy hard sauce. You are welcome. Goodnight.
