I am a firm believer in getting as much done ahead as possible for this holiday feast. Need turkey and prep ahead dinner tips? Click here.
Try my recipes for Cherry Crumb Pie, Traditional Pumpkin Pie, and Apple Crumb Pie....all my favorites for Thanksgiving! Don't feel like making a pie??? Try my Peach Crisp. Use frozen peaches, this dessert will come together in a matter of minutes! Make ahead and refrigerate. About 20 minutes before dessert time, warm in 325' oven for about 20 minutes....serve with real vanilla ice cream. I cannot forget to mention Pumpkin Spice Bread Pudding, yet another easy dessert that can be made ahead and baked before serving. What's not to love about bread pudding??
If you're having over night guests and would like a simple and delicious breakfast idea, why not try the Egg, Sausage, and Cheese Breakfast Bake. You can prepare it the night before and simply pop it in the oven in the morning, so easy and delicious! Try one of my delicious quick bread recipes such as Whole Wheat Pumpkin Spice Bread, Lemon Poppy Seed Cakes, or Blueberry Streusel Bread. All freeze beautifully and thaw out quickly in the microwave on defrost for 2 minutes or for an hour on the kitchen counter.
I especially love this holiday where the main focus is on being with everyone we love and simply enjoying delicious foods together.
