Getting Ready for Thanksgiving 2016

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

If your house has been as hectic as ours this year you may not have time to do a lot of menu planning, shopping or cooking. Now, I can’t do the cooking or shopping for you, but I can help with the menu planning.

I’ve decided to look back at some of our Thanksgivings and post the pictures and links back to the posts with the recipes. I’ve also added other tasty dishes that would be delicious additions to any Thanksgiving table. Click on each title to be taken back to each tasty recipe.

As I look back over 2016 I realize I have a lot to be thankful for – I survived yet another year. My sweet Tall & Handsome is still by my side, I have both of parents with me, I have some wonderful friends and we dodged the rainbow bridge a few weeks ago with our Miniature Schnauzer, Watson who is like our child – so much so I say there is a little boy zipped up in a dog suit.

I hope you find something that strikes your fancy enough to make it’s way to your Thanksgiving table in the selections below. My wish for you is a very happy and peaceful Thanksgiving with your family and friends.

Apple – Cider & Honey Brined Turkey

This is probably the best turkey I’ve eaten in my life and Tall & Handsome is always proud to serve it. If you prepare it one time, it will be hard to go back to a “regular” turkey.








Good Old Country Dressing


This is a recipe I adapted several years ago from a Paula Deen recipe. It’s addictive and I get requests for quite often.

















Crock Pot Dijon – Maple Brussels Sprouts with Golden Raisins


I have chronicled my distaste for what I called “bitter balls” and Tall & Handsome’s love for his beloved Brussels Sprouts. True love set me one a quest to find a recipe for Brussels Sprouts I could tolerate and this one more than filled the bill. This recipe converted me.


















Southern Sweet Potatoes Casserole


I have been making this family favorite for holidays and special meals for decades. It is a certified Southern dish. I prepared it for Northern family members one year and they said it was good enough to be a dessert.


















Sour Cream Scalloped Potatoes


If white potatoes are more your preference, then Sour Cream Scalloped Potatoes are guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser.
















Mixed Vegetable Casserole


This Mixed Vegetable Casserole is one of my favorite dishes my little Momma makes. She’s been making it for years and takes it for pot luck dinners for rave reviews.


















Bev’s Southern Squash Casserole


I must confess, I’m an addict of squash casserole. My casserole recipe lived in my head for years until it leaped out onto the page and formatted here for my readers. T & H says, “It’s good.” And, that’s a quote.
















Golden Pecan Pie


I made this pie for Tall & Handsome the first year we were together and his response was, “I can’t believe you can make a homemade pecan pie.” The pecan pie is good – really, really, Southern good.


















Fresh Apple Cake


I enjoy this cake so much there have been years I’ve asked for it for my birthday day. This recipe has been in the family for years.



















Red Velvet Cake is my other to die for cake. This recipe is super easy, plus I’ve used some ingredients that removes fat and calories.





If you find making homemade candy a little intimidating, do I have the recipe for you! This recipe is so easy when you’re finished you have a product that is A+ and will leave people asking for more.
