Some of you have been asking for me to round-up my favourite Thanksgiving/holiday recipes in one spot and I thought that was a great idea given that Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

20101002IMG 4054 thumb   Favourite Thanksgiving Recipe Round Up

Hopefully this will be of help for you as you plan your holiday meals this season.

beautiful, simply beautiful :)
My favorite holiday recipe is my mother’s corn bread casserole. It is just so so good & reminds me of home.. besides that I LOVE pecan pie.. I wish we had bottomless pits for stomachs because I want to try all these recipes for thanksgiving, but I know everyone will flip if we take away the classics. So, if we have the classics + the new ones that seems like an incredible huge amount of food. Maybe we can do Thanksgiving Round Two on Friday?!

I made the Pumpkin Pie Brownie Cupcakes and they were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! Did a practice batch to see if I should bake for Thanksgiving next week. My family (who didn’t know they were vegan) liked how ‘clean’ they tasted. Maybe they aren’t use to such good, healthy ingredients. One of the best recipes I’ve tried in a long time!!

Angela (Oh She Glows) November 18, 2010

yay!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) November 18, 2010

clean is a very interesting way to describe them…but I guess I would say most of the food I make tastes pretty clean (if by clean, they meant ‘real’ or wholesome, as opposed to fake tasting) :)

Jane November 17, 2010

If you can find trader joes candy cane peppermint tea, it is amazing!

Traci November 18, 2010

Agreed very yummy tea. Peppermint rocks :)

Paula November 18, 2010

I third that motion! I resisted getting it for a long time ‘cos I thought it would just be your typical peppermint tea (too bright and pepperminty!) but they had samples the other day and I was blown away by how yummy it was – the roasted chicory in it lends a depth and a richness – its more like eating a peppermint cookie than chewing on a piece of peppermint leaf :)

I have said it before and I will say it again…anyone who gets to celebrate with you or know you and gets to try your goods are the luckiest people alive!

My favorite recipe is My Pumpkin Soup with a special topping for Thanksgiving.

I wish I took more pics over the years like you but at least have started this last year. ;) Love the pics and recipes, thanks for sharing.

Big smile on the face!

Hey! Everything looks great! You’ve really outdone yourself this season. For holiday tea, I highly recommend Harney & Sons “Hot Cinnamon Spice”. It is naturally sweet and tastes like Christmas in a cup. http://www.harney.com/Hot-Cinnamon-Spice/products/225/

Maria @ Oh Healthy Day November 17, 2010

As I scrolled down, I said, “I want to make that. And that. And that. And that”. Then I wore myself out and figured I’d just come have Thanksgiving with you guys (even though you are in Canada, you’ll have one again, right? Please.)

Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Green Tea warms my heart. And my throat.

I am new to veganism, and still making the transition. Reading your blog has made it SO enjoyable. Everyday I look forward to see what you have whipped up. My boyfriend and I are now hooked on VOO and we just made the fruit and nut energy bites( so tasty!) I can’t wait to try all of your thanksgiving recipes and share them with my family!!

thanks! So glad you enjoy them

Katie November 17, 2010

I agree with the comment above – the Hot Cinnamon Spice tea is a year round favorite of mine. I got through 3-4 HUGE containers in the holiday season. Candy Can Lane is my second favorite – its decaf green tea…so good!

I made your pumpkin gingerbread with spiced buttercream, and it was one of the best things I have ever eaten.

I also made the pumpkin brownies, and I could not believe how nicely they turned out and how moist they were. Your recipes blow me away every time I make anything you have come up with!

Kind of funny that you’re talking about holiday recipes since I just made christmas cookies tonight! For thanksgiving, I do love the usual pumpkin pie ;). But I’ve never really celebrated thanksgiving…

As for holiday tea, I love Joy from Starbucks.

It’s really good and it reeeeallly does have a spicy tinge to it!

This post reminds me- PLEASE upload the s’mores cake in a jar recipe! I made the apple streusel and it was good….but the s’mores REALLY caught my eye! mmmm!

Not sure on a brand name here but my favorite tea from my favorite cafe is caramelized pear tea! Great for the holiday season ;-)

Little Aspects November 18, 2010

Oooh, me, I’ll be your taste-tester! We’ll be hitting the high 20C range next week (probably even in the 30s!) so you can enjoy warm weather and I’ll enjoy yummy vegan baking ;-)

Having said that, I would like a white Christmas at some stage – it’s funny that we associate Christmas with summer and hot weather and the beach and you guys are all about being warm and cozy in the freezing weather! So, my holiday recipes are various salads and fruity things for cooling down (mango and stonefruit season has now arrived!) rather than the hearty and warming fare you northerners get to enjoy for Christmas :)

I have one word for you Angela: AMAZING.
I’m kicking myself for living in Northern Europe where pumpkin is practically non-existant (as are Earth Balance & Almond milk, except the homemade kind). And its cold too, so my chances of becoming your taste tester are rather slim. But I can always try to adapt your recipes, and for those that I can’t – I can still enjoy your beautiful pictures!!!

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) November 18, 2010

Omg the time invested in this post. No wait. In ALL of the RECIPES! The photography…all of it.

As a blogger, cook, photographer….we all wear all hats. But you, you my dear, well all of them VERY WELL!

Pumpkin Pie Brownie Cupcakes – have seen a few girls make them and i thought i wanted to make those. But then i just saw the entire roundup of desserts and honestly am in drool overload. It’s overused in the sphere to say things look good. But seriously, Angela, your food just looks….SO GOOD. I mean amazing :)

Reply

Keri November 18, 2010

Oh my gosh, you are amazing. I am in charge of dessert this year and I would love to make one of these. I’m just nervous that they won’t come out as good as your did!

Angela (Oh She Glows) November 18, 2010

I would suggest the pumpkin pecan pie brownie…it was the fav!

Liana @ femme fraiche November 18, 2010

Now that it’s 6:24am and I’m starving for breakfast, lunch, dinner and gravy…

That’s the one thing I love most about fall, the cinnamon and pumpkin spices. They make every dish better, salty or sweet. The garlic pumpkin knots are identical to garlic “bowties” that bakery by our house has sold since I was a little girl. I actually worked at said bakery myself and had the honour of partaking in the magic of those bad boys. I’ve been eating apples uncooked with cinnamon sprinkled on and it hasn’t quite being doing it for me, so now I know how to fix it! Great roundup!

These all look fantastic! I’m slowly working my way through all your recipes and they’re all delicious!

As far as favourite holiday dishes go, for Thanksgiving it’s pumpkin pie and stuffing, for 9hristmas it’s definitely my Gramma’s shortbread cookies and oatmeal cookies with date jam.

This is our first Christmas without Gramma, but I’m hoping I can do her recipes justice.

My favourite holiday tea you can’t get anymore. It was a limited time Christmas blend. But second favourite would have to be a nice chai latte from teaopia.
