Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!  I hope that you all have a wonderful day!!

JOSEPHINE - feminine form of Joseph, the Latin form of Greek Ιωσηφ (Ioseph), which was from the Hebrew name יוֹסֵף (Yosef) meaning "he will add".:

And our Thanksgiving Dinner menu.


List of 25 Thanksgiving Turkey Recipes - Photo Gallery | SAVEUR. I don't have a Turkey board so I am placing these under the Chicken one:


Traditional moist dressing, baked outside of the bird. I make this when I am cooking a turkey breast without the cavity. You can also stuff your turkey with this!:

Mashed Potatoes

Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes (another pinner said... These are our favorite. Company loves them. We make them for almost every holiday and can be made the day before).:

Sweet Potatoes

Mashed sweet potatoes are a great alternative to the traditional mashed potato! Love the sweetness to these!:


Soft 100% Whole Wheat Rolls are so delicious! So good warm!:

Green Bean Casserole

Let’s be honest: The sides are the real stars of the Thanksgiving table! All you need is 4 simple ingredients (canned green beans, condensed cream of mushroom soup, milk and French-fried onions) to craft this spectacular, creamy veggie dish—one of our most-pinned Thanksgiving recipes. Click through for the full recipe and to watch the how-to video.:
Ok.  I like the French Fried Onions that are on top of Green Bean Casserole, but I don't like the casserole itself.

Cranberry Sauce

Classic, easy and delicious Thanksgiving cranberry sauce recipe.  How to make cranberry sauce from scratch.  Perfect with turkey. ~
Homemade  Cranberry Sauce. I don't like the homemade stuff very much because I don't like bitter things.

Homemade Classic Pumpkin Pie--I've been making this simple pumpkin pie recipe for years!  It's rich, creamy, smooth and velvety with the the right amount and combo of spices!:

Cherry Pie

Cherry Pie -- This is the recipe I use for my world-famous pie, beloved by all. Except I don't make the crust. I suck at it and Pillsbury makes it so much better.:  

All pictures are from PInterest.  I don't have random pictures of our Thanksgiving meals lying around!! 


  1. Ooooh, looks delicious!! :)

    I live in Canada, so our thanksgiving was back in October, but Happy Thanksgiving none the less!

  2. YUMMY happy thanksgiving! ~Taz

  3. That looks great! Homemade cranberry sauce doesn't have to be bitter, we make ours sweet. You should also try the sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top. :)

    1. Well Mom does put sweetener in, but not as much as I like.

      And I love marshmallows on my sweet potatoes!! But this year we peeled them raw, cut them into chunks, coated them in a butter/honey/cinnamon mixture and baked them. Yummy!!
