Fun vegetarian Thanksgiving indulgent meal prepared almost all make ahead!
My favorite way to shop all my favorite stores and you get paid:
Make life easy on yourself during the holidays. Prepare some appetizers on your own and buy 2 others (fancy potato chips, cheese board, or fun flavored peanuts. Make these appetizers (uncooked on sheet tray) a couple days before Thanksgiving and then 30 minutes before guests come put in oven.
1) Jalapeno Popper Pinwheels
You can’t get much easier than this party food appetizer. If you are not a big fan of cooking, this will win you over. It is flaky, creamy, and has a kick of spiciness from the jalapenos that make your world smile.
2) Slow Cooker Biscuit Berry Cobbler
Hot and crispy french fries coated with crunchy everything bagel seasoning is a comfort food dream come true. This recipe is easy, fun! Best part is you get to dip into creamy, garlicky scallion cream cheese dip.
The Main Course (Dinner and a side):
Cauliflower is not just trendy and tasty but also cheap. Making Thanksgiving can be expensive so this is a great way to be Thankful for not breaking the bank. Also, this is a hearty buttery alternative to Turkey everyone will eat!
Sheet Pan Whole Roasted Cauliflower
Sweet, buttery, juicy, and spicy whole roasted cauliflower surrounded by fluffy salty potatoes for dinner.
Easy Holiday Sides:
The sides are my favorite party of celebrating the holidays! Make a bunch of sides and have someone bring a salad.
1) 3 Ingredient Mac and Cheese
I usually buy desserts (instead of making them), but once in awhile a no-bake recipe makes me feel like a fancy pastry chef (without the work).
2) Brown Butter Mashed Potato
To me mashed potatoes are the ultimate side – and I think some recipes get so complicated and have way too many steps!
Sweet Holiday Wishes Dessert Recipes:
These 2 desserts are totally make ahead no bakes. I am so not a baker. So I created easy ways to have decadent sweet endings that are super easy to make.
1) Pumpkin Spice Cookie Dough
2) No Bake Peanut Butter Nutella Pie
Creamy, sweet, and decadent pie love on a plate. This is a perfect make ahead recipe that frees up so much time.
