  1. Your recipes sound delicious. I’ve already checked out your Au Gratin recipe. Please share your post on my Sunday’s Best Linkup. We’re celebrating Thanksgiving, but other posts are welcome too including cocktails. I would love to feature you. Starts every Saturday night at 8:00 pm EST.

      Thank you Jonathan. I like fun and easy food. Cooking is fun until I get too hot, lol! This is a family favorite recipe.

  2. I agree with you. Thawing isn’t necessary if you don’t have time to prepare your Turkey. I had a last minute plan, bought the Turkey the same day and cook it slowly.

    1. Homestead Wishing

      Glad to hear you had a good Thanksgiving! Thank you, I am sure it will be full of food, fun, and family! YAY!

  3. So many great recipes! I will have to try some of these out! I’m not great with baking and cooking I pretty much let that up to my family. I’d rather bake than cook and whole turkey is a task I’ve yet to undertake…

    1. It is so much more simple than it looks! Especially, if you buy a turkey that is ready to bake! Thanks for stopping by Heidi!

  4. I really appreciate all the tips, I love the recipes you put on here as well. Thanks for sharing all of them, I can’t wait for Thanksgiving. It’s one of the best Holidays ever!

  5. I am going to be cooking thanksgiving dinner for the first time. i am not going to tackle a turkey, i’ll get one from honey baked ham but I’m excited to tackle everything else! great ideas

    1. Oh I know what that is like. My parents are gluten free, no MSG, low sugar, and on and on. It gets difficult, but I worked in the natural food industry for many years so I know how to do it. That helps at least! Good luck with your dinner. I know it will be great and nut free!

    1. I am definitely not ready for it this year. This year has flown by. I love this time of year but seriously it is coming too soon!
