It’s almost Thanksgiving and I’ve come up with a turkey-shaped appetizer for all your guests to snack on before dinner is served. I’ve partnered with Marzetti® for the holidays to share some yummy apple dippin’ fun and I’m using some Old Fashioned Caramel Dip for the center of our display. I chose the light brand, keeping […]

Sign me up for anything with pumpkin baked into it, especially if there’s maple syrup involved. My kids were going crazy over these biscuits. I’ve seen similar recipes, but I decided to use my favorite buttermilk biscuit recipe and tweak it a little. A little less milk and a good dose of pumpkin puree, a […]

I am happy to report I placed an order for our family’s bird for Thanksgiving dinner, and will be picking it up on Tuesday. It’s a ritual (now in it’s third year) at the Mangum casa. Now, lest you think me more of a domestic diva than is prudent, I do not cook an entire […]

We’ve made these turkey favors before, even with an updated look, but this year, we’re trying to go on the healthier side with what we offer inside. So I’ve added a nuts, seeds, and berries mix to our cute little turkeys for the Thanksgiving table. *You can really add almost anything to these little guys. […]

This month is bound to blow by and my thoughts are 100% occupied by Thanksgiving. We are planning out our Thanksgiving menu, and the aftermath. I know that most people don’t think about the leftovers, but I do. For one thing, I need to have posts ready to go to help others use up their […]

Don’t you just love a hot apple pie? I could go for a slice right now and it’s not even a holiday. But to help you get prepped for Thanksgiving, it’s time to start thinking pie. See the following links for Apple Pie Recipes and to help you get the dessert table ready! Easy Apple […]

Pumpkin Pie Recipes for Fall

by Marie on November 5, 2012

Tis the season of pies! Are you as excited about Thanksgiving dessert as me? I think pie is my favorite part of the meal. And pumpkin to boot. I could eat about 7 of these mini pumpkin pies myself. Here are a few versions of the beloved pumpkin pie: Mini Pumpkin Pies in a Muffin […]

Thanksgiving is just a week away. And while the holidays often seem choc full of consumerism and wastefulness, Turkey Day is one holiday with plenty of easy and accessible ways to Go Green. I know it sounds crazy – the gluttony, the consumption (oh my the consumption!); but the traditional Thanksgiving meal is in itself […]

Think that’s a bold claim?  The best mashed potatoes? You’ll have to give this recipe a try and see if I’m right. Thanksgiving is next week. Millions of families will be serving mashed potatoes slathered in gravy. There is nothing worse than having subpar mashed potatoes. Gravy, my friends, does not cover up all mashed […]

Thanksgiving is my holiday. All mine. I plan the menu, but I don’t forget to add in a few family favorites mixed with a few new recipes I’ve bookmarked to try. What usually happens though, is that I end up with way too many sides that take too much time to prepare.  Inevitably we eat […]

Tasty Turkey Table Favors

by Marie on November 12, 2008

I dolled up my post from last year’s Turkey Favors, by adding more flare to these cute little Gobblers. Different colored fabric tulle netting – red, orange, green and purple. Instead of just M&M’s, there’s Whoppers, Mike & Ikes, Tootsie Rolls, and Gumdrops. This time, I twisted the brown pipe wire for the turkey’s neck, […]

Is Your Belly About to Pop?

by Marie on November 23, 2007

I know the food was out of this world, but did I have to eat at 1:00 pm and again at 4:00 pm and again at 7:00 pm? I don’t know if it is trouble or gluttony genius having lots and lots of food served at Thanksgiving. I know I gained about 10 pounds, but […]

The Perfect Tan

by Marie on November 20, 2007

I am really going to try this. My Mom may not go for it, so I will have to sneak the tinfoil on after I coax her out of the kitchen. I wish I could have a tan as good as this. It’s even better than when I got back from Mexico. Thanks, Alyssa, for […]
