Thanksgiving Traditions

November 21, 2011

Thanksgiving is just a few days away. Laura and I are in charge of pies, and I’m also bringing my Easy Cranberry Chutney to our family’s Thanksgiving feast.

These are the recipes I have been making for quite a few years; my family looks forward to having these favorites each year. Just click on the title for each one to see the original post and the recipe.


Easy Cranberry Chutney




Naturally Sweetened Pumpkin Pie


Pecan Pie


Happy Apple Pie



Happy Thanksgiving to all!

(Don’t forget to save the turkey carcass to make Turkey Carcass Soup!)

      Yay! And Happy Thanksgiving to all at the Small’s Thanksgiving feast! (Maybe Mary Kate will give you the turkey carcass!)

    I made my turkey early because I’m not hosting the feast and I wanted leftovers. Made the stock already. Just may try your chutney to take to SIL’s.

      That’s exactly what I do, but I usually make my turkey for leftovers after Thanksgiving! 🙂

    I hope you had a great holiday. Your photos are wonderful, but the apple pie stole the show:-). This was my first viit to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I’m so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I’ll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

    Smile! I hope you had a blessed holiday. Everything looks so good, but like Mary said, your apple pie won my heart! Thank you for sharing with me. I hope you are having a relaxing weekend with family and good food. Many blessings this week, my friend!

    You made my day! I’ve never made turkey soup and I was hoping one of my friends would have a recommended recipe. 🙂 I would like to follow that with a slice of that pumpkin pie!

    I hope you had a good weekend my friend!
