Thanksgiving is always treated with extra special care wherever I go. It is no doubt in part seen as a tribute to my Dad and his love of the holiday. He was an incredible cook and was a master with everything from the “main event” to desserts. I always remember the table filled with so much effort and love in every dish. It was a day where all the stress and turmoil could melt away and we could remind ourselves of what is truly important, one another.
Now that I have a lovely little familia I am so excited to start some traditions of our own. I am beyond super happy that the babies are interested and getting old enough to be helpful in the kitchen. This year I also have my little sister coming to stay which is wonderful. She is one of my favorite people to share the kitchen with. 🙂
I know the time is tick, ticking away but if you are like me you work best under pressure. I have collected a list of some of the most delicious and unique recipes I could gather, along with a few classics of course. You may find a last minute addition or replacement for your holiday table. Or if you are feeling “crazy” you can make them any day just because! 🙂 Have a safe and beautiful holiday. I hope you are surrounded by those you love at a table filled with delicious food, laughter and gratitude. XOXO Nicole
