Every year we go to my in-laws for Thanksgiving. They make the turkey and the rest of us divide up all the other dishes. I usually do veggies, desserts and rolls. I am going to change it up this year and bring a few new items to the table. I thought I would share a few ideas for sides and desserts, just in case you want something different, or you just do not know what to make.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Cranberries and Butternut Squash
Sweet, tangy and hearty all in one place. This dish is so colorful and tasty.
You only need 8-10 minutes and these are perfect and ready.
Roasted Rainbow Carrots with Honey Drizzle
Everything is better with a drizzle of honey.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Zucchini
A little sweet and savory in one dish.
Parsnip and Cauliflower Puree
This is a play on mashed potatoes with less carbs.
Orange-Ginger Carrot Puree
This is one of my favorites. You get a hint of orange, ginger and a little sweetness. It is so good.
Brussel Sprouts with Cranberries
This was the first dish I made with brussel Sprouts. I did not like brussel sprouts before this dish. I am a converted brussel sprout fan now.
There are plenty more sides on my website. I hope this will give you inspiration for your Thanksgiving table.
Where to begin? Pumpkin probably.
Pumpkin Scones with Maple Cinnamon Glaze
These would be great for a continental breakfast.
Apple Cider Custard
Make this the day before and let it set in your refrigerator. The flavors will meld together and make this so luscious.
Fudgy Chocolate Cake
This cake is so good. Do not be misled by the title, it is not as dense as you would think.
This is one of the family favorites. It does take a little bit of time, but is totally worth it.
I started with Pumpkin and I will end with pumpkin. After all it is Thanksgiving.
This is a must have on our Thanksgiving table.
There are more ideas on my website. May your day be filled with love and gratitude. Remember to be thankful and enjoy your time with family and friends. It is Thanksgiving after all.
