Thanksgiving Recipe Recap!

It’s already been a week since Thanksgiving! Time sure does fly! I wanted to share the recipes I used for Thanksgiving. I would love to be more adventurous by creating my own dessert recipes but it’s so hard to know amounts of ingredients. One day…



Roasted Grapes over Ricotta Cheese on Toast sprinkled with slivered almond and honey 


Butternut Squash Dip


We also served this amazing cheese I found at Trader Joe’s. It has raisins, dates, and toffee in it. YUM.


We of course had turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, and cranberries (well I can’t eat them but everyone else did 🙂 )

Here are the dishes I was in charge of:


I sliced Trader Joe’s tri-color carrots, sprayed them with Olive Oil, sprinkled them with salt and pepper and roasted them.

We also had this amazing Brussels sprouts dish (no picture). I found the recipe and my Dad made it (there was only so much time I had for cooking/baking)!



Pumpkin Truffles. I also dipped some in semi-sweet chocolate. Note: This recipe says it makes 25 but that was not the case. I quadrupled the recipe and probably got like 30-40.

For my pies I made the crusts a few days before. Here is the crust recipe. I actually did this for both pies.


Pumpkin Pie inside recipe from here.

Now onto the star of the show, the Salted Caramel Apple Pie. I don’t like apple pie, but this I LOVED.


I made the Salted Caramel Sauce a few days before, OMG you could eat this alone.

Cored, peeled and sliced the apples. Assembled them high on my crust and drizzled the caramel sauce.


Assembled the lattice and sprinkled coarse sugar on top. (My dad totally helped me with this one).


Voila! SO good. Served it with fresh whipped cream that I made with my Kitchen Aid Mixer. 1 cup of heavy cream to a 1/4 cup of powdered sugar, whip on high for a few minutes and you have fresh whipped cream.

That is a wrap up of my Thanksgiving recipes! Hopefully this will be a great resource to you (I know I will be using this round-up next year 🙂 )!
