All bloggers seem to have a Thanksgiving Round-Up where they list all kinds of recipes from all over the blogging world – many of them fantastic recipes – but mine is different. My Round-Up is just that: my family recipes that I have shared with you here throughout the years and are now accessible in one post so you don’t have to search!
P.S. – Next Friday is Black Friday where many of us purchase Christmas presents but I have already have one for you! That’s right; I will be having a giveaway just for you, my loyal blog readers. I am the sole “sponsor” of the giveaway and while I wish I could have purchased one for each and every one of you, I just bought two: One for those who read the blog and one for those who follow me on Face Book. Of course, if you do both, you can enter twice to increase your odds of winning one. You will not have to do anything to enter except comment. I won’t be sharing that post in a bunch of social media outlets like I usually do so really – your odds of winning are great! The title of the post will not say there is a giveaway so watch for it and good luck.
Let’s start this off with an oldie but goodie and please notice how my photographs have improved over the years….although they are still not great.
How to make a smoker in your oven.
Cooking a turkey in your smoker with Dr. Pepper (or other soda).
Cranberry, Clove, & Cinnamon Glaze for your Ham. You really must try this because it rocks!
Appetizer for those “hangry” guests: Toasted Ravioli.
Chicken and Dressing. I can’t wait for this one!
Carrots & Cranberries with Honey Glaze. Something new for the table.
Cranberry Fluff – no holiday table is complete without fruit and Cool Whip.
Homemade Crescent Rolls – nothing better with butter!
Nana’s Candied Sweet Potatoes – this is MY dessert!
Cinnamon Pumpkin Cake with Caramel Apple Icing – nothing easier than starting with cake mix.
Pumpkin Pudding Poke Cake – for all my poke cake fans.
Sweet Potato Pie – made to meet all your dietary special needs guests.
Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie – If no one would ever know, I would have no problem eating this entire pie by myself.
I hope you have enjoyed this post reminding of you some old favorites and introducing you to new recipes posted before you began reading my blog. Happy Thanksgiving and don’t forget to look for the post with the secret giveaway just for you right after Thanksgiving Day! Kelli
Wonderful recipes – many I’ve saved in the past. I’m sure you will prepare a great Thanksgiving meal.
Thanks Lillian! Happy Thanksgiving!
Wow, Kelli all of your recipes look delicious,… I love Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie, I could eat a slice of your pie right now! Love your pictures 🙂
I’ve started getting everything I need for our Thanksgiving too, can’t wait, I love turkey!! 🙂
Yum! I want to come to your house!!!
Hey Tana – I know you are also celebrating a birthday during Thanksgiving. They are all getting so big……….where does the time go?
Your cuz, Teresa
Kelli…YUM! Looked at family favorites and so wish I was joining y’all this year! The cinnamon pumpkin cake reminded me of the first Year Jimmie and I were married. I made a cinnamon cake from scratch…Jimmie thought it was the orangest cake he’d ever seen and was dubious about trying it, but he was pleasantly surprised that it was edible! Lol. Daddy’s fave was sweet potato pie…and how can you go wrong with bourbon pecan pie? It screams N’awlins!
Anyway, I love you and hope y’all have a wonderful, blessing filled Thanksgiving…oh, is your Momfixing ham? In case you don’t recall, Daddy teased your Mom about ham…make sure you tell her I was “channeling” Daddy-lol…but I LOVE HAM!!!!! Love y’all
You know mom is making ham! We just bought it last night – with all these men in the family now, a turkey and ham are hardly enough! 🙂 I miss you too and remember your dad’s teasing very well! I’m sure Jimmie loved anything you cooked – he always did. Of course I didn’t add the banana pudding and chocolate pudding although Nana always made it. I had to limit the number of recipes and besides, that’s not regular Thanksgiving food for most – just our family! 🙂 Love you!
Well, I have to say that not everyone is doing a round up! 🙂 Glad you did though. I have got to get organized one day and do a post of our faves for the holidays. Hope you have a happy and fruitful Thanksgiving with you and yours, Kelli!
