my thankgiving contributions

I know there are some fabulous foodies out there that take traditional Thanksgiving dishes and transform them into something incredibly unique and creative for turkey day, but our family is all about keeping some traditions close to our heart, and Thanksgiving is certainly one of those occasions!
We keep it pretty simple when it comes to recreating our menu each year, too... I usually branch out and try something fun for at least one dish, but some things are classics and cannot be taken off the menu, am I right?? Here are the three dishes I am making for this year's festivities!

I think by now you're all well aware of my sweet tooth, right? Can you tell by what I volunteered to bring? I love putting on one of my fun aprons, bringing all my ingredients out from the pantry, and spending my afternoon making yummy treats for my family...maybe it's a Southern thing, I'm not sure, but Thanksgiving is fast approaching and I can't wait.
Lots to be grateful for this year!

  4. All of these recipes look delicious, and are making me really hungry for lunch! I'm sending the pie recipe to my mama--as she is the true baker in our family.
