New, Delicious Holiday Recipes

This year, my husband and I hosted our first Thanksgiving dinner.  Growing up watching my mom host amazing gatherings with fabulous food, I found myself trying to create a unique menu that would stand out from the rest.  I experimented with recipes from Pinterest, weeded out the failures, and ended up with a few really yummy dishes.  Some of them were so yummy, in fact, that they’ve been requested as my contribution to our Christmas family potluck!

Whether you’re looking for a stand-out appetizer, side dish, or dessert, I’ve got a fantastic recipe for you.  I’ve made each of these dishes more than once and have had success each time.  Trust me, your friends and family will gobble these up and you’ll have a new, festive recipe to add to your repertoire!
