Thanksgiving is coming up so quickly this year! It seems like just yesterday was Halloween, some of you may still have your decorations up in the yard.
Here at Just Like Family, we love a good Thanksgiving meal. It brings everyone together around a shared common interest: food! It’s a great way to get everyone thinking about the present and what they are grateful for, right before the rush of Christmas and the winter holidays comes along.
If you’re like us, you can’t wait to start making that delicious stuffing, cranberry sauce, and sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows. We have some fun recipes that are a little different from the usual, along with a few decoration ideas to make your space feel festive.
At the bottom of the article, we also have links to a few of our other Thanksgiving-themed posts that include tips for not going crazy during the holidays and more fall decorations and recipe ideas.
We’re starting with dessert! Pumpkin Pie and Pecan Pie are two favorites for this holiday, so why not combine them?
Don’t force yourself to eat plain rolls this year. Spice things up with these scones that have bacon, cheddar, and chives.
These stuffing cupcakes are so cute! Use stuffing for the base and mashed potatoes with gravy for the “icing” part.
Have a little pick me up ready for the big day with this made-for-fall drink recipe.
Too full for dessert? These bite-sized apple pie turnovers are just small enough that you won’t feel too guilty about eating them.
Of course we can’t forget the turkey! To spice things up from the traditional turkey, add a bit of maple, tamarind, and bourbon.
