What to bring to Thanksgiving:

Giada’s Baked Mashed Potatoes

While most people say the rolls are the best part of Thanksgiving ( and my Mother in law Β  makes potato rolls that are to die for) I will always be a potato fan. I just love them any way they are made fried, mashed, baked… all good. This recipe is one of my favorite mashed potatoe recipes and it’s always a big hit when I bring it for the holidays. The breadcrumbs and cheese add richness to the dish while herbs add an earthy flavor. And well you cant go wrong with Giada πŸ˜‰

What to do with the leftovers:

Sun Dried Tomato and Stuffing Steak Rolls

This is a recipe I discovered in college. My mom had got me this handy cookbook “Semi-Homemade Cooking” by Sandra lee, which really was quite perfect because I was trying to learn how to cook but was too scared to really dive into it. I dont stray too much from this recipe but instead of getting one large piece of skirt steak , I tend to buy smaller sandwich steak cuts. They are still thin cuts of steak but this way you can make smaller portions almost like pigs in a blanket orΒ spiedini for my Italian friends out there πŸ™‚ I love using this recipe idea and turning it into a Thanksgiving leftovers solution! Whether you sub the steak for slices of turkey or use steak and your leftover Turkey day stuffing, this is a fun new way to eat some of your holiday faves.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

It always seems that after T-day there’s always a couple extra cans of pumpkin sitting around so why not make some pumpkin chocolate chip bread with them? Great for breakfast, dessert or an afternoon snack, this bread is divine with a cup of coffee or tea!


There you go, three simple recipes to enjoy throughout the holiday weekend this month!
