Incredibly Delicious Pretzel Roll Stuffing with Pine Nuts

I’ve always been all about the pretzel. Whether it’s a soft, warm pretzel that’s been slathered with yellow mustard, or a large, fragrant, yeasty pretzel bun, which elevates a delicious burger from good, to great! It’s always the pretzel that makes things memorable. Always.

Showstopper Thanksgiving Turkey Bread Bowl Appetizer with Creamy Spinach Ranch Dip

This Turkey Bread Bowl with Creamy Spinach Ranch Dip is an appetizer I brought to my brother and sister-in-law’s house last year when they hosted Thanksgiving. That year, I made him the morning of Thanksgiving and then all year I kept him in the back of my mind so I could bring him to you this year. After all, he’s just too cute (and tasty) not to share with you here.

Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie #PumpkinWeek 2016

I thought I’d kick off #PumpkinWeek2016 with a bang this year and share with you this Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie. The key to assembling the turkey crust so he doesn’t drown in all that luscious pumpkin filling is to bake the pumpkin pie partially before adding Mr. Tom Turkey on top. That way the custard pie will be set enough so that the turkey crust will sit on top of the pie, and won’t be eaten up and fall to the bottom of the pie.

Hearty Dark Rye Pumpkin Yeast Bread

Contrary to the title of this recipe, this Dark Rye Pumpkin Yeast Bread does not contain any pumpkin in the ingredients. I’ve named this recipe specifically from the shape of the loaves themselves. For those of you who are so over the last three months of all things “pumpkin flavored”…you’re welcome!! LOL

Thanksgiving’s Best Pineapple Cardamom Cranberry Sauce

We all know that there are a million recipes out there for cranberry sauce, and they all beat the buttons off the cranberry jelly sold in the cans on the grocery store shelves. You know the ones. The ones that come out like a log on a plate complete with that appetite suppressing suctioned slosh sound. Plop. Jiggle. Jiggle.
