Thanksgiving Roundup

I'm sure I don't need to remind you that Thanksgiving is a mere three days away. Most of you already know how you're going to cook your turkey (I STILL don't know how I'm going to do mine.) However, if you're scrambling for some side dish recipes, here's a list of some of my personal favorites. And if even one of you finds a recipe here to round out your Thanksgiving menu, I'll feel my work here is done. However, please note that I still have a few tricks up my sleeve for this week, including a fantastic cranberry sauce recipe and "day ahead mashed potatoes" that are going to take away your Thanksgiving day stress. Well, some of it anyway. Stayed tuned!

The best, easiest, quickest and tastiest dinner rolls (Thanks again Frieda)


Thanksgiving noodles

Twice baked chipotle sweet potatoes (just in case you hate those "marshmallow" sweet potatoes)

Sourdough stuffing

Zucchini casserole "to die for"

Green beans with mushrooms, onions and almonds

Zucchini corn bake

Roasted sesame-glazed sweet potatoes

Now that's a round-up, Mags. All of it looks divine. Much of it too carby for me (booooo!) but I can always taste with my eyes, right?
Your "you love me, you really love me" comment on my blog had me nearly spitting out my water in laughter. Thanks for the giggle.
