Thanksgiving Prep and Recipes

What are you doing for Thanksgiving? Have you already gotten it figured out or do you need some last minute help preparing?

We hosted Thanksgiving last year, and although we're not this year, there's still a lot to cook and get done before the big day. I love Annie'sEats Thanksgiving Prep series from a few years ago, this might be helpful for some of you:

There are tons of other blogs with great tips and recipes out there, but I thought I would share some of the recipes that we've used (and loved) in the past.

Knorr Spinach Dip
Spinach Dip - I love this spinach dip, it's addicting and goes great with veggies or anything else you want :) 

Phyllo Cups with Brie, Preserves, and Pecans - These are great as an appetizer or snack. 

Roasted Turkey - A delicious recipe and lots of helpful tips for roasting your turkey. Perfect if you're cooking a turkey for the first time, it will walk you through step-by-step... so easy!

Roasted Brussel Sprouts - These have a really good flavor and texture. 

Alton's Green Bean Casserole or French's Green Bean Casserole - They're both delicious, but Alton's is a nice option if you don't want to use the cream of mushroom soup. 

Perfect Macaroni and Cheese - We made this last year, it was great. I love that it has Gruyere, too.  

Pumpkin Cheesecake Cake - One of my own creations, the perfect Thanksgiving dessert! 

Chocolate Chess Pie - Is there anything better than this... I don't think so! 

Here are my posts from last Thanksgiving:
