5 Recipes To Try This Thanksgiving
I'm not going to lie, the past couple weeks have been tough. We all received some shocking news regarding who our new president-elect is many people (including myself) are still distraught, confused and scared. I believe many definitely needed some time to reflect which created an eerie silence in the city. I have decided It's time to stop mourning and start making moves. It is always a goal of mine to put out positivity and spread it which is what I plan to do with Style & Forks from now on.
Alright now let's move on to the fun stuff. Now more than ever, I think it's safe to say we could all use some comfort food. Lucky for us, this is the time of year when we are surrounded by it. Thanksgiving is around the corner and many are scrambling trying to figure out what to serve for dinner. I may not know all the recipes but I have a growing Pinterest board filled with recipes. I am sharing with you the top recipes I would like to try this holiday.
Hope you enjoy!
1. Jambalaya Soup - Grandbaby Cakes
Yes Yes, I know jambalaya isn't exactly a traditional thanksgiving dish but it's damn good. I love New Orleans and anything that reminds me of it, so naturally I am a huge fan of jambalaya. This recipe by Grandbaby Cakes is simple and yummy!
2. Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Turtle Brownies - Mom On Timeout
It should be no surprise to anyone that the second thing on this list is dessert. Honestly, it's what I look forward to the most and I don't think I'm the only one that feels this way. the most exciting aspect of this recipe is that it's made in a slow cooker meaning minimal effort. Minimal effort is the best when you are cooking a thousand other things!
3. Mac & Cheese Bites - PureWow
I don't know about how dinners works in your family but my family doesn't serve thanksgiving dinner till about 8 o'clock. I didn't learn till recent that this is apparently late, but for those who also eat dinner late, this is a great recipe to hold you over.
4. Sparkling Apple Cider Sangria - The Kitchn
It simply isn't thanksgiving without a proper cocktail. Again, I'm sticking with minimal recipes which will give you peace of mind on the day of. This recipe will keep all the age appropriate folks nice and happy.
Of course, I had to add my sweet potato pie resident, it's awesome! I also feel that it was necessary to add at least one classic recipe on here.
