Thanksgiving Menu 2015

Thanksgiving has passed but I wanted to show some new recipes we made this year. The Jello mold above has an eggnog layer on the bottom,which I found to be so cute and festive. I'll be posting the recipes very shortly, then it is onto Christmas!

Thanksgiving Menu 2015 - Recipes to come soon!

Cheddar Pecan Cheese Ring with Strawberry Preserves - this is a very popular recipe at our house. Might seem strange but it is incredibly delicious.

Brined Turkey with Orange Tangerine Glaze
Notes: We used this Turkey Brine from The Pioneer Woman. For the glaze we used 1 cup of orange-tangerine juice with 1/4 cup sugar, reduced it down till it was syrupy then added 1/4 tsp. crushed sage. Brush it on your turkey when it is almost done baking.

Oyster Dressing
Dried Cherry, Cranberry and Sausage Stuffing
Roasted Butternut Squash, Brussel Sprouts with Pomegranate Seeds and Pomegranate Glaze
Candied Sweet Potatoes
Mashed Potatoes
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Green Bean Casserole with French Fried Onions (classic back of the box recipe)
Dinner rolls
Jellied Cranberry Sauce (my new go-to cranberry sauce)
Cranberry Pineapple Sauce
Raspberry, Cranberry and Eggnog Layered Jello Mold

Super Smooth Secret Ingredient Pumpkin Pie (the best pumpkin pie recipe we've ever made)
Chocolate Mud Pie


  1. My mom used to make oyster stuffing. I loved it but when I got married I found that I was the only one. I miss that kind of stuffing! Oyster lovers, you must try it!

  2. Yum, it looks like you had a delicious Thanksgiving!
