Thanksgiving is next week, so this week I am ferociously making plans and menus for our big dinner next week. Here are some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes that I can promise you will want to make this year.
I am a Mexican food lover more than any other food on the planet, so when I was contacted by the Certified Steak and Seafood Company and they asked me if I wanted to try their meats and create some recipes, I jumped at the chance. They sent me delicious jumbo shrimp, ribeye steak, and this gorgeous flank steak. With the flank steak, I knew I was going to be making Quick and Easy Flank Steak Tacos.
This delicious butternut squash soup will put you in a very festive Thanksgiving mood after just one bite! It’s easy to make and it also is very inexpensive, so your wallet will be happy too!
Last year when I went to Type-A, I went out to eat with some of the girls on our last night there. I wasn’t in the mood for anything heavy, but I also did not want a salad. I opted for soup and decided to try their butternut squash soup. The warmth and flavor that I tasted in just that first bite, made me realize that I was definitely going to try and recreate it at home.
I am part of the Netflix #StreamTeam. I have been compensated to share this post with you. All opinions listed are 100% my own.
I have always been a huge fan of Veggie Tales, so when I found out that in November, Netflix will be releasing the new “Veggie Tales in the House” series, I got super excited! In fact, blogger and recipe creator Andrea Lynn made this perfect pairing of Cucumber Rolls with Veggie(tales) Cream Cheese for us to share with you!
One of my new favorite dishes to eat is orzo. This little bitty pasta can be used in any kind of recipe. You can use it in salads like this Tomatoes and Orzo recipe I made, or you can use it in soups and stews (I have a recipe coming soon for a Chicken Orzo Soup that you are just going to FLIP over). Today though, I wanted to share with you my new take — Cheesy Orzo Pasta.
Did you know that November 6th is National Nachos day? I didn’t either, but when I found out, I decided to make a delicious dinner of Loaded Nachos. They remind me of the Nachos Supreme that they serve at most Mexican restaurants, but of course, mine tastes a lot better!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I have been checking out all the different menu varieties I have available this year. Instead of buying the same turkey I use every year, this year I am cooking an Oven Ready Whole Turkey from Jennie-O. Their turkeys are juicy and moist and oh so delicious!
Last year on my daughter’s 16th birthday, I held her a surprise party. I had her favorite band send her a special message (that took some doing), invited all her family and friends, and made her a Spiderman Cheesecake. She hates cake, but loves cheesecake so I found a great tutorial on Pinterest and made her one.
