Thanksgiving Round Up
Thanksgiving is just one week from today! Are you ready? It’s my favorite holiday of the year because it involves my 3 favorite F’s – food, family and football. We’re hosting dinner at our house this year and I’m still finalizing the menu. Perhaps you need a few last minute ideas for your menu too?
Cinnamon Sugar Pecans
Looking for a pre-dinner snack that’s quick and not too filling? These salty sweet cinnamon sugar pecans are great for munching!
Low-Fat Ranch Dressing / Dip
Here’s another light recipe that comes together quickly and, paired with some fresh veggies, will give your guests something not too filling to snack on while dinner is cooking. Bored with Ranch? Try making your own light and flavorful tzatziki dip instead!
Bourbon Cranberry Sauce
Cranberry sauce is a must on most Thanksgiving tables and this is my absolute favorite recipe. If you like bourbon at all you’ll love this. If you don’t, try Flavia’s Grand Marnier version instead!
Apple Cranberry Caramel Tarts
Of course we can’t forget dessert! These tarts are packed with fall flavors, making them a great alternative to traditional pumpkin pie. I’m going to make a big 9″ tart for my family this year!
Cranberry Upside-Down Cake
If you have guests spending the night after the big meal, it’s nice to have a sweet but not too heavy breakfast treat for the next morning. This Cranberry Upside-Down Cake fits the bill, and it’s a great way to use up any leftover cranberries you have!
