Thanksgiving Recipe Ideas


Main Course

spiral-sliced ham

Side Dishes

Autumn Chopped Salad

Dessert and Drinks

  • Pumpkin Dump Cake – Easier and tastier than pumpkin pie, in our humble opinions.
  • Snickerdoodle Cookies – These are SO good. Fun to have kids help with the prep, too.
  • Slow Cooker Pumpkin Spice Latte  – Such a treat to have before or after a Thanksgiving meal!
  • Apple Pie Bars – Made with a delicious green apple filling and a buttery sugar cookie crust.
  • Pie in a Jar – These personal-sized pies are made in little mason jars that can go straight from your freezer to your oven to your mouth.
