It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving 2012 is less than a week away. This time of the year gets me in my “I’m going to make hundreds of crafts and recipes in less than two months” mode.

Dangerous. But, ‘tis the season, right?

One thing I enjoy about Thanksgiving and Christmas is all the time spent in the kitchen – with family around, talking, laughing, helping, getting in the way – you know, normal family gatherings. But, seriously, I think part of the fun about the day is all the food prep that goes on. All the women in the kitchen hustling around getting everything ready, all the men trying to pick at the food, getting yelled at by all the women. It all represents that life is present in your home. Family, friends, story telling, laughing, memory making – it’s my most favorite part of the day.

So – you can imagine that it can be disappointing when I see so many dishes not being made from scratch on this special day-leaving the kitchen a lonely and quiet place. Pre-packaged foods go flying off the shelf like mad – pumpkin pies, biscuits and dinner rolls, cans of cranberry sauce, tubs of cool whip – you name it. Don’t get me wrong, I know it’s convenient and some people don’t have time to bake or cook or they just don’t know how. It’s just that there is something so fun and memorable about the smell of the turkey cooking, fresh pie crust coming out of the oven, the sound of the hand mixer whipping up fresh heavy cream to top the pies, the smell of cranberries heating over the stove and coffee brewing in the background.

At this season of my life, I don’t get to host a big Thanksgiving celebration for family and friends. We are blessed to be able to go to our families homes and celebrate with them, but I still get to bake desserts to bring along. Each year I like to try new and creative things. I’ve always liked everything I’ve made – although others may not have embraced them as easily as I have. I’m thinking it has to do with change. I know that’s hard for people. This year will be no different and I’ve been searching for just the right recipes to try. Last year I made a Molasses Spiced Cake that was absolutely amazing. I also made Salted Caramel Butter Squares (recipe link below) that were so wonderful. I did pumpkin layer bars along with a pumpkin soufflé! This year I have a list that I’m trying to narrow down, but it’s difficult.

Below I have 53 recipes that could be incorporated into your Thanksgiving Day celebration! If you know anything about my philosophy on food, you will soon realize that many of these would have to be tweaked before going on my table – but I’ve looked at all of these – and the tweaking wouldn’t be hard or complicated at all. I’ve chosen recipes that are easy to make substitutions with, that use real food, natural sweeteners and are pretty much from scratch. If you’re a real foodie, you can even take some of the ‘from scratch’ even further by making your own pumpkin puree, spice blends and whipped cream! I can always find a way to take a traditional recipe and make it healthy and nourishing for my family! Some are more time consuming than others – but it also depends on how well you get around a kitchen. All are absolutely doable!

So – if you’re one of those who gets out of control during this time of year and your inner Martha Stewart starts coming out – you may find a dish or two below that you’ll want to try. If I were you, I’d Pin them (if you’re on Pinterest) so you can go back later and make those you don’t have time to make now. If you’re really crafty, you can even make your own Tiered  Serving Platters to display your goodies on in style!


Take time to visit these wonderful bloggers and check out their recipes! Enjoy!
