The weekend before Thanksgiving always seems to kick off the holiday season for me- I just love it! I have my holiday magazines in front of me and am flipping through all of the recipes. SO MUCH FOOD. In case you're still in need of some inspiration, I rounded up some of my favorites and some things that I want to try!
Give me ALL THE BAKED BRIE. This recipe is a favorite and a staple for the holidays with my family.
This cleaned up version of green bean casserole is SO GOOD. A little more time consuming, but totally worth it. The caramelized shallots on top are everything.
If mashed potatoes aren't your thing, these hasselback potatoes look delicious.
I like pumpkin pie but I LOVE pumpkin roll. I would choose it 100 times over pie. This original recipe from Libby's is the very best!
Apple Cider Margaritas. Another tried and true favorite here and because every holiday needs a festive signature drink.
Frisee salad with walnut, cranberries and blue cheese. A perfect bite to start with.
I could get excited about these biscuits.
Here's a great Thanksgiving roundup on Cooking Light! Tons of recipes! My favorite go-to.
And the mothership, Southern Living. There are literally hundreds of recipes for the holidays archived on their site!
And, not food related, but here are some fun ways to decorate with pumpkins! I love the gold dipped mini pumpkins as place settings. It would be especially pretty with a white pumpkin!
Enjoy the pre-holiday weekend! It's one of my favorites of the year!
