It's no secret that I'm obsessed with the brussels sprouts recipe I've made over the past couple years. I've already told my family that is how I will be contributing to Thanksgiving this year. I already tried to claim dessert as my contribution, but it sounds like my 6-year old niece is on dessert duty. I have confidence she'll be able to deliver a delectable dessert, mostly because she will certainly not shy away from saying she doesn't like something haha. When I think of Thanksgiving meals, I think of the classic turkey, mashed potatoes + gravy, stuffing, rolls, cranberry, green bean casserole, and endless pies. Although classic is great, I feel like offering a new spin on the meal can be fun and engaging. I've also heard turkey is supposed to be pricey this year (isn't everything else...?), so here are some self-proclaimed *fun* alternatives.
Fall Cobb Salad for a variety of flavors, colors, and use of fall produce. I personally love the use of squash and apples in a salad. VIEW RECIPE
Crispy Parmesan Thyme Sweet Potato Stacks. I think I'll be trying these more often than just at Thanksgiving, if you ask me.
Glazed Brown Sugar Maple Cookies. Expectations are high with the presentation delivery... just kidding, you could definitely shape the cookies into regular circles and drizzle the glaze like a normal human being. On the other hand, you could absolutely take the time to perfect the pumpkins. I'm personally too impatient for cookie shapes other than circles haha. VIEW RECIPE
Apple Cider Old Fashioned for a fall spin on a classic beverage. VIEW RECIPE
