Thanksgiving Recipes on Family Fun Friday

November 13, 2014Danita


Welcome to Family Fun Friday!

Family Fun Friday is a collection of Family Friendly posts to help families connect. Whether it be through encouragement, home school printable, craft ideas, family activities or delicious family recipes, our goal is to promote family togetherness.  We hope you’ll stick around a while and check out some of the great ideas you see here.

If you stop by here very often, you can tell what’s on my mind right now….Thanksgiving!  It’s one of our favorite holidays and it requires a good bit of planning.  This week I’m featuring Thanksgiving Recipes, just in case you’re looking for something new to add to your traditional family recipes.

Some nice Mulled Apple Cider would be a welcome treat to warm your guests as they arrive.  Thanks goes to, Merissa of Little House Living for sharing this recipe.  

Need a side dish or two?  Ana at Mommy’s Bundle has everything from Mashed Potatoes to Brussel Sprouts…and all Deliciously Easy!

Thanksgiving isn’t complete without rolls, right?  Holly at 2 Kids and Tired Cooks (which sums up life pretty well) shared this Cloverleaf Rolls recipe for yeast rolls.  They seem pretty easy for homemade rolls!

I know Pumpkin Pie is traditional for Thanksgiving, but we always have Apple, too.  Annette, at This Simple Home, shares Grandma’s Classic Apple Pie...nothing beats a classic! 

If you prefer something a little less traditional, Karen from Future Expat, has 10 Unique Pie Crust Recipes for you to try!

Lastly, a BIG thanks to Heidi from One Creative Mommy for sharing these 60+ Delicious Gluten Free Thanksgiving Recipes!  I’m very thankful no one in our family needs to eat gluten-free, but I know people who do.  It can be difficult to plan and prepare for them if you’re not used to it. Great ideas by Heidi!

Let’s see what great features our other co-hosts have chosen…

    Thanks for featuring my unique pie crust collection. I can’t wait to start baking in my new house (I close on Dec 18) and do some baking so I can try out these crusts myself.
