My Thanksgiving Menu


My family doesn’t really have a Thanksgiving tradition except having rice on the table. Since two years ago I started taking control in the kitchen for every holiday that was to come. I like to challenge myself in catering to many of my family and friends, this year I’ll have 15 guest.My menu always changes and I get inspired from other food blogs, cookbooks, the food network, or the cooking channel. I collect many recipe’s and keep it in my Thanksgiving folder and when the holiday comes around I randomly pick and just roll with it. There’s so many delicious recipe’s out there I must try them all! So here I share with you this years Thanksgiving menu.

  1. Hi Sherlly,

    Sorry to hear the crackers didn’t turn out for you. I have made them several times and they always come out great. I wonder what happened?

    I was also wondering if you could be so nice and ask my permission for reusing my pictures. I have a copyright on them. I hope you understand.

    Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season.
    Greetings form Colorado.

      Hi Kirsten,

      So sorry, I totally didn’t realize. And yeah about the crackers it was probably because my house was a bit hot from having the ovens on alllll day hehe. I will make them this week! Thank you.
